Swan

Ex head of QA Software at feu Aldebaran Robotics puis DevOps chez Leboncoin, Sonia takes advantage of her previous experiences to manage Swan's infrastructure (CI / CD/ Cloud provider). Sonia has a taste for all things gaming, manga, and fantasy.

Ex-developer Nicolas has already co-founded two successful payment startups, Limonetik and Antelop, and Swan is his most ambitious venture yet. His favorite place is in front of the whiteboard with colleagues, building products and organizations together. Nicolas is also one of a handful of avid cyclists at Swan.

Luka first got to know Swan as an investor at Creandum, one of our major VCs. He was so convinced by our vision that he went on to join Swan as a Chief of Staff, running business development as well as other strategic projects. Being a true gourmet, he's happy to have landed in the capital of fine food: Paris.

Having always been drawn to fintech, Alix discovered at Swan a way to evolve in an environment that's both technical and financial. Alix is a bit of a renaissance man (ask him to play Chopin) and can be a bit of a clown as well.

With experience both in a PR agency and among tech teams at an international ISP, Sarah has a mix of communications and tech background making her well placed to decrypt Swan for its audience. She's also a proud labradoodle mom, classically trained flutist, and plays in a band.

With years of client relationship experience under his belt, Thomas has specialized in accompanying partners with their practical and technical integration. He's the guy that makes everything runs smoothly for our partners. Thomas also happens to be a volunteer EMT with the Red Cross, running around in ambulances 1 night a month!

Before joining Swan as Chief Compliance Officer, Stéphie was at Leetchi, the European leader in online money pots (12 million+ users), where she created a powerful scoring engine and built a compliance department from the ground up. An expert in fraud, regulation, and client services, Stéphie is just the powerhouse Swan needed to help us earn our coveted e-money license, and to provide the most robust possible compliance processes.

Mathieu pilots super complex projects with admirable tech prowess. Passionate and altruistic, he's as comfortable sharing at a conference as he is huddled around a beer. Ex-lead dev at Xebia, then technical director, Breton has already launched his first tech company, JS-Republic, and now brings his savoir-faire to Swan.

Additional offices are set to be open in Germany and Spain.

What they are looking for

Rockstars with grit, and the desire to build a massively successful company. If you're cool, chill, and nice to work with, it's an added bonus!

Check out our values to get a better idea of who we are:

Be a good human being We spontaneously go the extra mile to help people — whether they're a colleague, a partner, an investor, or a client. Be straightforward, transparent, and sincerely care. It's all about integrity and doing the right thing.

Collaboration We believe in the power of collective intelligence and team-thinking. We cultivate reflective listening and make sure everyone is empowered to speak up. We love to challenge others' ideas and be challenged in return. May the best ideas win.

"Move fast, don't break things." Swan must be secure, robust, and built to last. If we must choose between security and going fast, we choose security. We are in banking, after all.

Make everything as simple as possible If something's convoluted or confusing, we work extra hard to break it down. Making complex things simple is what we do.

Good to know

Every year, the team spends a week working together in a big beautiful country house with a pool (in 2021 it was an actual castle!)
