In order to scale our business and fulfill our vision of increasing economic freedom in the world, we need the ability to do more with our resources. That’s why we’re creating a new Platforms team across our Product and Engineering orgs, and have hired two exceptional leaders for this new team. Shilpa Dhar joins Coinbase as VP of Product and Ravi Byakod is joining as VP of Engineering. In leading the new Platforms team, Shilpa and Ravi will help us focus on creating strong, scalable, and compliant infrastructure that can keep up with the growing cryptoeconomy.
Shilpa joins Coinbase from Venmo, where she served as Head of Product. Before that, she spent over a decade at PayPal where she led teams including Nextgen Commerce, Identity, Global Customer Onboarding and User Platforms.
Ravi joins Coinbase from Adobe, where he managed development and operations for their commerce platform. Ravi previously held senior engineering leadership positions at StubHub, eBay, Flipkart, and Google, where he worked for more than a decade.
We also welcome Frank Yoo, VP, Design & Research. Frank brings nearly 20 years of design experience, most recently leading global design and research teams for GSuite at Google. Before that, Frank built the design function at Lyft and led design at Linkedin and Yahoo!. His passion for taking the complex and making it simple and usable makes him a great fit to lead Design and Research at Coinbase.
We continue making investments in talent, pushing ourselves to raise the bar on hiring and ensuring our teams are well-positioned to make our mission and vision a reality.
