Disclaimer/FYI/FWIW: Coinbase was YC S12.

PS: Suprised to see no mention after 14+ hours on the entire sub-discussion that their tech stack appears to still depend on MongoDB (re: "service decay & delays").

Not sure what happened on this month's job thread (too late to delete?); it's not like it's a secret!

  Everything makes so much sense now (Coinbase's single digit SLA)


  In case you are wondering what technologies we use at Coinbase, we’re built using a combination 
  of Ruby, Node.js, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Redis, Swift (for iOS), and Java (for Android).
