Coinbase is delighted to announce the launch of the Community Analyst Program, a.k.a. the CAP Program. This is a new and exciting way for students, professionals and community members who share our core beliefs to contribute to Coinbase’s mission to increase economic freedom.
If you are crypto-native, crypto-passionate or insatiably crypto-curious, this is an opportunity to get involved in the fast-paced crypto industry.You will gain a foundation of meaningful experiences and relationships to build-on!
So let’s cover the basics: the Why, Who, What, Where and When?
Why Become a Community Analyst?
With the cryptocurrency industry evolving rapidly, Coinbase’s goal to help bridge crypto and the mainstream will become even more important. As such, we are launching a Community Analyst program to provide a platform for crypto-passionate individuals to launch their crypto careers, either at Coinbase or elsewhere in the space. At Coinbase, we believe it’s our responsibility to be good stewards of the space, which means developing the next generation of leaders and elite talent to drive growth for the wider industry. This will help accelerate wider industry growth.
As a Community Analyst, you will be on the front lines collecting information and signals from community hotspots, in-person events and/or conferences as well as public online resources (including the blockchain). Some benefits of the program include:
- An hourly wage & Coinbase gear!
- Opportunity to influence Coinbase initiatives
- Further career development opportunities
- Build relationships within your cohort and in the crypto community
- Opportunities to meet and get to know the Coinbase team
Who Is Eligible for the Program?
Any university students, graduate degree students, full-time professionals or crypto community members are encouraged to apply. Community Analysts will be part-time contractors. Depending on company needs and candidate fit, Coinbase may extend summer internships or full-time offers.
What is Required of a Community Analyst? Where is the program held?
You need to be crypto-native or crypto-passionate and insatiably curious. The program is fully remote. Duties will include both virtual and real-world components, such as:
- Embedding into crypto communities, participating and building relationships in community hot-spots throughout Discord, Telegram, Twitter, and other outlets.
- Generating periodic reports or research analysis on emerging trends, community sentiment and grassroots activities.
- Attending in-person meetups or crypto industry conferences as needed.
- Average commitment of 10–15 hours per week.
You will update the Coinbase team during bi-weekly check-up calls and keep us updated on your progress via group chats. We expect Community Analysts to be self-motivated and dedicated to producing measurable results.
When does the program start?
The inaugural program cohort will be rolled out from January 2022 lasting through May 2022, and will be termed the “Spring Cohort”. A Fall cohort is scheduled for September 2022 to December 2022. Spring and Fall cohorts are expected to occur every year the program is active.
How do I join?
To join, you must first fill out the application form here. Those interested should have a basic familiarity with the cryptocurrency industry and blockchain space. If selected, you will have a call with our partners to ensure our goals and expectations are aligned. If you advance through the phone screening process, the onboarding process will begin — more details will be shared at that time.
Becoming a Community Analyst leads to opportunities to expand your role, such as potential summer internship offers, full-time offers or even opportunities developing within the communities you engage in. More information about opportunities to join a Coinbase summer internship or full-time offer will be given upon successful completion of the program.
