        Who are we

        Crosslend is developing a platform to connect institutional sellers (originators) and buyers (investors) of loans on a large scale. Originators are providing historical data that is used to create prediction models. Based on the predictions, investors can run several types of analytics to define their investment criteria. Once an investment is done, the platform will be fed with updates about the loan performance to provide further portfolio analysis. This enables a high transparency for the investors to prevent crashes like 2008. In an additional step, the purchased loans can be resold on the platform to create a liquid market for loans to enable a better flow of capital between countries in the European Union.

        We are providing external APIs for data ingestion, APIs for the data analysis as well as APIs to sell/buy the loans. The APIs are partly exposed externally and partly internally used by our frontend. We’re using a service-oriented architecture based on Kubernetes in AWS. The services are currently written in Python, PHP and Javascript (Vue.js) and are using REST and GraphQL. Engineering teams for the data infrastructure and science will process the data and provide further analytics and information for our customers.
