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, Luno 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.


As our first smart contract engineer you'll be joining a team of strong technologists and you'll own the smart contract development and oracle integration. You'll engage with the smartest teams in DeFi lending to integrate with their protocols. While initially focused on the Ethereum ecosystem we'll be expanding across chains and you'll have the opportunity to learn and spearhead our growth. You'll have the opportunity to go from MVP through to scaled deployments and will exude positivity and a “get things done” attitude through your great communication and collaboration skills.
