The number of Coinbase customers in the European Union (EU) grew faster than any other market in 2017. As we scale, we need to attract the best, most qualified and passionate talent to help us achieve our mission of creating an open financial system for the world.
We explored a variety of cities across the EU, and Dublin was the clear choice. Our new office will help us tap into the city’s diverse talent pool and long-standing support for technological innovation, including a burgeoning cryptocurrency economy. The Dublin team will compliment Coinbase operations in London and host a variety of new business-related functions, including roles for which we’re hiring right now.
“Dublin is a talent hotspot for companies like Coinbase as they scale and internationalize critical businesses operations,” said Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland, the country’s inward investment agency. “We look forward to welcoming Coinbase into the Irish economy, and helping them access our talented pool of young professionals from the technology and financial services sectors.”
“I am delighted that Coinbase is opening an office in Dublin,” echoed Ireland’s Minister for Financial Services and Insurance Michael D’Arcy T.D. “This decision highlights the competitive offering and attractiveness of Ireland for financial services.”
Expanding our presence in Dublin is one more step along our journey to ensure Coinbase is viewed as a trusted and easy-to-use cryptocurrency platform in Europe. It’s exciting to continue encountering people all over the world who are eager to help us unlock the power of cryptocurrency and accelerate its adoption worldwide. We look forward to harnessing Ireland’s entrepreneurial spirit and contributing to the growth of the Irish technology sector.
