Coinbase is announcing our Summer 2022 Community Ambassador Program!
We are building upon the successful launch of our Community Analyst Program (CAP) in January this year, when we recruited 15 talented part-time students and professionals to help Coinbase conduct crypto research. Our community ambassadors researched areas such as DeFi, NFTs, wallets, Layer-1 protocols, scalability solutions, and other exciting web3 innovations, which helped inform Coinbase teams on web3 trends. Their work supported internal research teams, the Coinbase University Program, international growth, and the Developer Relations team. Following the program, our ambassadors reported that their crypto research and analytical skills improved, and they were more motivated to work in crypto.
We’re excited to welcome our next cohort of ambassadors this summer. If you live and breathe crypto or you’re simply crypto-curious and want to gain more exposure to the industry, this is the perfect opportunity. CAP enables you to gain experience in the exciting crypto industry, with opportunities to educate yourself on top crypto trends, and to make an impact on Coinbase and the crypto ecosystem at large.
Our mission is to increase economic freedom in the world, and to help accomplish this we want to onboard a large and diverse group of people aligned on this common goal.
