| Greater Boston Area
Boston, USA
Circle is on a mission to make it possible for everyone, everywhere to create and share value. We're building a new kind of consumer finance. Unlike existing systems that are closed and proprietary, we use open internet standards and protocols, including the blockchain, to build our products. 

We've already made sending money around the world free and as easy as sending a text with Circle Pay. With Circle Trade, we're market makers for the top crypto currencies and offer OTC trading services. Now, we're expanding our offerings by building a cryptocurrency investment product (https://invest.circle.com) to enable anyone to buy and sell cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. 

What does that mean for the global economy? It's more open. More inclusive. And more empowering.

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have a team-oriented, open concept, collaborative office. I love working with people who are incredibly passionate about what they do.

Rachel

Office Experience Coordinator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

If I can, I walk over to them, but I typically message them on Slack about an idea or contextualized piece of customer feedback. With that info, we can better understand how to enhance overall customer experience and how we can improve it.

George

Customer Experience Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Coming to Circle from a law firm was a huge change for me, but I’ve learned so much in just a few months. From learning about cryptocurrency to employment law to stock options, I love that I get to work on something new every day. I’m excited to continue working for a company that gives me an opportunity to learn something new every day.

Circle has been an ideal place for to gain technical knowledge from pros with deep expertise in their fields. Working alongside seasoned engineers and data scientists, a younger professional can learn the ins-and-outs of complex frameworks that would take years to master elsewhere. Circle has taken my technical skills to the next level.
