How did a startup founded in France go to YCombinator and become a $2.2b product-led success story? We spoke to Nicolas Dessaigne, Algolia’s founder who is now also a Visiting Partner at YC to hear his lessons learned from growing a developer-oriented, API-first PLG company.
In this episode, we discussed:
- Why Algolia brought on a People team to help with recruiting when the company only had 25 employees
- How Nicolas built a culture of ownership that he believed was key to Algolia’s success
- When and why Algolia decided to layer on a sales team to supercharge its product-led growth
- Growth lessons from the different stages of Algolia’s journey: $0-1m ARR, $1-10m, $10m+
