An Insider's view of CoinFlip

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have an extremely diverse, yet like-minded group of people at CoinFlip with all backgrounds ranging from professional gamers and musical artists to drift car racers and 30+ year veterans in finance. We don’t have a 9-5 policy, and working from home is always an option, so it’s always exciting to hear what people are doing outside the office.
