CoinList is where the best crypto projects in the world raise capital and grow their communities. Through our token sale platform, we've helped projects like Filecoin, Blockstack, and Algorand raise over $500 million. Through our community-building tools, we've helped projects like DFINITY, 0x, and Dapper Labs (makers of CryptoKitties) engage developers and crypto enthusiasts. We are backed by top-tier investors, have offices in SF and NY, and are just getting started.

As a KYC Onboarding/Verification Specialist you’ll work cross-functionally across our compliance, legal, engineering, and operations teams to ensure a seamless onboarding experience for our customers. 

This is a 6 month contract role with potential to extend.

Who you are: 

  • You’re excited about cryptocurrency. CoinList’s mission is to help the best crypto companies succeed by serving as a trusted advisor in the space. We’re incredibly excited by the power of distributed ledger technology, and you should be too. 

  • You get stuff done. You’ll have (often ambiguous) responsibilities ranging from helping customers to speccing out product improvements. CoinList is a low ego environment and you shouldn’t be opposed to getting your hands dirty. 

  • You’re a proven operator. You have 2+ years of experience onboarding customers and ensuring compliance within "Know Your Customer" (KYC) guidelines. 

  • You’re analytical. 

  • You deal well with pressure. CoinList’s customers work hard to raise capital and build their communities, and we partner with them in their most important moments. You thrive under high pressure situations like this and enjoy keeping others calm, on task and on track.

  • You’re curious. You want to understand how things work. You value interesting things, especially outside your discipline. You like teaching others and constantly learning. You read and question things.

  • You ship. You make deadlines for yourself and you move fast. You focus on the things that matter and push back on things that don’t. People know they can count on you to get things done.


What you will do:

  • Responsible for a seamless onboarding experience for our clients, including KYC verification, client accreditation, and due diligence reviews.

  • Help us stay compliant. Ensure we uphold all compliance requirements pertaining to “Know Your Customer” by reviewing documentation and researching clients.

    • Maintain procedural documentation updating as KYC requirements and internal policies/processes change.

    • Escalate fraud related onboarding issues to the compliance team as appropriate.

  • Meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs).



  • Attention to detail. Clear and concise writing. Structured thinking. 
  • Excellent analytical and interpersonal skills. 
  • Background in cryptocurrency/blockchain technology a strong plus.
  • General understanding of KYC requirements.
  • Fluency with a second language is a plus.
  • 2+ years of experience working in a similar role.
