Frontend Engineer

About Greenwood Labs

The majority of protocols in the decentralized finance (DeFi) industry focus on making money for crypto lenders. We’re on a mission to save money for crypto borrowers.

Greenwood is DeFi’s first borrowing aggregator. Our protocol reduces the interest that crypto borrowers pay on their loans by originating loans with the least expensive lending protocol, and automatically refinancing loans when a lower interest rate is available.

We handle the complexity of integrating with, and comparing interest rates across, the ever-growing number of decentralized lending protocols to deliver a simple, protocol agnostic, interface for borrowing crypto.

Our team is backed by some of the world’s best investors and operators – Polychain Capital, Blockchain Capital, Robot Ventures, and strategic angel investors – who support our team in delivering a world-class product.
