Après son diplôme à l'ESCP puis une première expérience chez PwC en tant que consultante, Alison a rejoint Lydia en avril 2018. Elle occupe un poste à multiples casquettes (certainement le plus long intitulé de la boîte !) : Responsable de la Conformité et du Contrôle Interne et Déléguée à la Protection des Données.

En quelques mots, Alison est en charge de s'assurer que la réglementation est correctement mise en place et que l'intérêt des clients et des employés sont protégés, notamment en ce qui concerne l'utilisation de leurs données. Alison occupe aussi occasionnellement le poste de cuisto de Lydia, qu'elle partage en intérim avec le Responsable de la Lutte contre la Fraude.

Diplômé d’Epitech, Frédéric a pour devise «Sometimes it works, sometimes it will». Après plusieurs expériences au cours de ses études, il rejoint l’aventure Lydia dès ses débuts en tant que développeur multi-casquettes.

Il est aujourd'hui architecte fonctionnel et aide à la conception de nouvelles features

Infatigable entrepreneur dont les 20 ans d’expérience n’ont pas entamé la conviction que la technologie peut rendre le quotidien plus simple et le monde meilleur, Cyril est le co-fondateur et président de Lydia.

Il veille sur l’équilibre délicat entre les ingrédients de la mayonnaise et s’assure que le batteur tourne toujours à la bonne vitesse.

Diplômé de l'ESCP, Guillaume a rejoint Lydia après 7 années de conseil en stratégie avec un objectif : construire, petit à petit, le meilleur support client du marché !

Victor Jolly joined Lydia early 2018 to participate in the launch of Lydia's first paying offer and was shortly after appointed COO of the company. As part of this role, Victor has worked on scaling Lydia's operations and on enabling the company's growth, from 30 to 350 employees (internal & external).

He is currently managing several of Lydia's core teams, including Customer Operations (customer service, fraud fighting, back-office, etc.), Project Management & Delivery (working on delivering Lydia's Product roadmap) and Technical Product Management (building Lydia's expertise on payments, credit, remote identity verification, etc.).

Previously, Victor worked as a Strategy Consultant at McKinsey, where he mainly worked with Financial Institutions, as well as an M&A Analyst at Deutsche Bank, on M&A operations involving players from the Financial Services industry.

Jeanne joined Lydia in September 2020 as Product Owner based at our global headquarters in Paris, as part of a one year work-and-study program with HEC and Ecole Polytechnique. After her graduation in Summer 2021, she decided to continue her adventure at Lydia for the long term.

As a business school student, Jeanne became passionate about Product Management during her internship at Skello, a B2B SaaS for HR planning where she was the 2nd employee in the Product team and got to learn all about the mindset and skills required.

She is now responsible for a vast range of features, in order to make Lydia’s positioning clear to every user. She also takes part in the structuration of the team, so that it can grow and have even more impact on Lydia, the product but also the company.

Alexandre joined Lydia as a CTO in January 2020. He’s managing all the engineering teams : infrastructure, software engineers, QA and data scientists. His main missions as a CTO is to provide the best technology to serve billions of transactions to tens of millions of users across Europe.

Prior to Lydia Alexandre has been working in many startups for the last 15 years. First as a software engineer until he started to manage teams of engineers as a VP of engineering and a CTO.

His particular skills are to stay very hands-on with the engineering teams, working with them on designing systems, making code reviews and sometimes, writing a few lines of go code.

Fanny started her career as a strategy consultant at McKinsey & Company, with projects across the world. At 28 she became Chief Marketing and Product officer at Baobab, a financial inclusion company with 4 000 employees across 10 countries.

Fanny is now in charge of building the Marketing team at Lydia to make our voice and product known across Europe. From a team of two when she arrived 9 months ago, the team has now grown to more than 10 people, with even more ambitious recruiting objectives in the months to come!

Sergio Mobilia joined Lydia in the summer of 2021 as our first-ever VP People & Culture based at our global headquarters in Paris. A much-awaited arrival, Sergio has a long-standing international career in the field of Talent and Human Resources, priorly having led regional and global teams for Google, Uber, The British Council, TransferWise and UKG (formerly PeopleDoc/Ultimate Software) - literally across the world.
