Open Source Metering and Usage Based Billing
Mission: amplify CEO’s impact
If you’re looking for a role where you stay high-level and don’t go into the nitty gritty of things, then it’s probably not the right fit. On the contrary, if you’re excited about rolling up your sleeves and being part of the founding team of a very ambitious and international fintech company, then this is a great match and we want to hear from you!
'CEO' is the most transversal role in a company, with moving priorities, parallelized projects, and quick but impactful decisions to be made. Your mission at Lago is to 10x Anh-Tho’s impact. This can include: defining and implementing repeatable processes to take the company to the next level (e.g., go to market, customer success, finance) ; lead preliminary research on strategic projects (e.g., pricing) ; act as the ‘head of a new BU’, lead the recruiting of the team and handle the handover. You’ll be involved in very operational as well as strategic projects and you should be happy and motivated by working on very hands-on things to serve the vision the founders have for the company.
Your manager will be the CEO (Anh-Tho, ex-McKinsey and ex 1st employee Qonto, a $5B Fintech) and she’s used to working with a very high bar. Anh-Tho needs a 'Wild Card' she can trust enough to delegate important things from her current scope while being confident the right level of quality and prioritization will remain. Your scope will include a variety of things and will evolve over time as the company grows. You should be excited about rather than afraid by its versatility!
The key main points will be:
This role is ideal if you're looking for an experience to learn fast, with the perspective of being a founder yourself in the mid-term.
