Job Brief

FreshCredit® is looking for rust/blockchain engineers to build a borderless financial technology platform providing credit scoring services for consumers and businesses, not a bank.

FreshCredit® is a platform that is composed of mobile apps, RESTful API, smart contracts, blockchains and/or parachains (Bitcoin, Polkadot, and our own FreshCredit® Token “FRESH”).
