    Coinbase

    Currently on contract at Coinbase until the end of August. Survived today’s layoffs, but it’s seems clear they won’t have openings to hire me at the end of my contract. When’s the appropriate time to start sending out applications?

      Coinbase Response

      Thanks for your feedback. We believe the best way to ensure sustainability for our people and our business is by employing a ‘sprint and recharge’ model. We work incredibly hard at Coinbase and seek to balance that by offering company-wide recharge weeks (there will be 4 recharge weeks in 2022). So far it’s working for us and I’m pleased to see from your comments it seems to be working for you too. L.J. Brock, Chief People Officer
