About Cred Protocol

Cred Protocol's on a mission to bring DeFi lending to a billion people. Improving access to financial resources means quantifying risk. Quantified risk at scale is credit scoring. Cred Protocol's building one of the first decentralized credit scores, a DeFi primitive that unlocks capital-efficient lending and enables under-served communities to access the power of DeFi lending.

We're funded by top crypto investors including AllianceDAO, Volt Capital, Robot Ventures, GSR Markets, DCG Expeditions, SNZ Holding, AngelDAO, imToken and amazing founders and executives from across web2 and web3.

We’re a team of prior founders with successful exits and deep expertise in massively scalable infrastructure, AI, and blockchain with experience spanning Silicon Valley startups and world-class institutions such as Facebook/Meta, Amazon, Deutsche Bank and Cambridge University.


You’ll own the cohesive user experience of Cred Protocol, from branding to product design. Working closely with the founder and cross-functional leads from product management and engineering to sales and marketing, you’ll establish Cred Protocol as a premium web3 brand.

You’ll engage with our customers and adjacent protocols to ensure we’re delivering risk data and credit scoring that’s intuitive and trusted.
