Web3 Engineering Manager, Base

Compensation: $211k

Location: Remote - Canada

Base is planning to bring a million developers and a billion users onchain. We need your help to make that happen.

Base’s mission is to build a global onchain economy that increases innovation, creativity, and economic freedom.

We believe that the onchain platform is the most important builder platform since the internet (“online”). We believe that the onchain platform should be open source, free to use, and globally available. And we believe that in order to make it really work, we need all hands on deck, working together to scale in a secure, decentralized, easy-to-use way.

Base is incubated within Coinbase and plans to progressively decentralize in the years ahead. We believe that decentralization is critical to creating an open, global cryptoeconomy that is accessible to everyone.

Base is built on Optimism’s open-source OP Stack. We’re joining as the second Core Dev team working on the OP Stack to ensure it’s a public good available to everyone; and contributing a portion of sequencer revenue to funding public goods.

Base is hiring an Engineering Manager to lead, grow, and support a world-class team of full stack engineers in our mission to bring the world onchain. You’ll help nurture organizational health, steer project management, and identify opportunities for the team to tackle, while working closely with Product, Design, Security and DevRel functions to execute on the team’s high leverage bets. We need a leader who can work with a high level of freedom and autonomy, advocate best in class development practices, and collaborate with internal and external partners on a daily basis. This is a unique opportunity to join a small but fast-growing team with a massive impact on the future of Base and the wider crypto industry.


  • Lead and support a team of high-performing engineers, fostering an environment of mentorship, rigor, and outsized impact
  • Assist with charting organizational growth, including hiring, developing and retaining top talent
  • Collaborate closely with cross-functional teams, including Developer Relations, Business Development, Marketing, Legal, and Blockchain Security, to refine and drive Base’s strategic objectives
  • Own project roadmapping and coordination across the team to enable high quality and rapid execution
  • Cultivate a culture of innovation and learning in onchain product engineering

What we look for in you:

  • At least 7 years of experience in software engineering
  • At least 2 years of engineering management experience
  • Strong technical competency, including onchain fluency
  • Experience managing high performing engineers
  • Track record of extreme rigor in operational excellence for mission-critical systems
  • Experience creating impact despite ambiguity
  • You’re optimistic and excited about the future of crypto
