Founding Engineer (Interfold)

About Us

At Interfold, our mission is to bring greater access to capital through fast, modern user experiences.

In commercial lending today, the end customer experience is slow and painful. It takes 3-6 weeks to receive a loan and requires a lot of manual, back-and-forth interactions like emails. This also causes major problems for banks. The lending process is people intensive, slow, and inefficient. Often, the banks will turn away smaller businesses or raise interest rates for them — not because the customers lack credit worthiness — but to focus on larger accounts for efficiency reasons. This leads to social stratification where small businesses are disproportionately disadvantaged in the lending process.

By digitizing the  “people heavy” lending process into a series of financial algorithms, we can get to a world where credit decisions are made near-instantaneously and funding is awarded the same day or next day — instead of taking weeks. Our product automatically extracts data using OCR, analyzes the information, and performs credit decisioning all in real-time.
