Founded by two ex-Coinbase employees and backed by top investors including Andreesen Horowitz, Coinbase, IDEO, and Kindred Ventures, Goldfinch is a decentralized credit platform that is using crypto to empower financial inclusion around the world.
Our vision is to build a global, decentralized network that allows anyone to be a lender, not just banks. Since launching the protocol in December 2020, we've gone from zero to serving thousands of end-borrowers across three continents in over 10 different countries. And we're just getting started. Over the next few months, we'll significantly increase the loan book, and launch a decentralized network soon after to massively scale the types and amount of lending that we can support.
As a Frontend Engineer at Goldfinch, you will be responsible — along with the rest our world-class engineering team — for building delightful web products for our customers to use. You'll own features on our frontends, and ensure we have sane and maintainable code. We generally follow an agile methodology. We work to create a high trust, empathetic team environment with high standards of excellence and integrity. We also bring a security first mindset to everything we build.
Tech: All our frontends are in React, using Typescript. We use GCP and Firebase for cloud functions and data storage. We heavily interact with the Ethereum blockchain. We also use The Graph protocol for on-chain data retrieval, which is a GraphQL based API service.
Projects You Might Work On
With any of these projects, we often design together, and implement separately. You'd be expected to own implementation from end to end, while being an enthusiastic and collaborative team member with everyone else and their projects.
