Fast growth FinTech Laybuy ‘A$80 million IPO’ appoints CTO with scaleXT

Laybuy are a company that has global ambitions and are certainly on a trajectory that’s pretty exciting…

Last week Laybuy moved ahead with an A$80 million IPO listing on the Australia’s ASX. Laybuy operates in NZ, Australia and UK.

One of their biggest issues when it comes to managing rapid growth? Recruitment. Quality candidates that fit the brief and align with internal culture are a rarity and often hard to find Laybuy were experiencing just that while they were looking to bring on board a game changing new Chief Technology Officer. That’s why they turned to us 18 months ago to help.


“We were looking for a very rare all rounder to be our Chief Technology Officer who understood not only the payments platform domain but who was also functionally had a strong background in architectural and development roles. Within a very short period of time we had a quality shortlist of 3 candidates who we all took through the full recruitment process which included detailed technical assessments at the final hurdle. The end result was that we secured an individual that was perfectly suited to Laybuy’s aspirational goals. As we continue to scale globally we look forward to using scaleXT again.”
