Lara Astafyeva is the Financial Specialist at Clausematch. We recently sat down with Lara to learn about her role at Clausematch.
I am a Financial Specialist at Clausematch. Basically, my role can be divided into three key areas:
Clausematch Stand-alone Level
Clausematch Group Level:
Since our organization is in an active growth stage, almost all positions are not strictly limited, so I am responsible for tasks and projects at the intersection of cross-functions.
I graduated from the Moscow State Humanitarian Institute of Economics with an Associate Degree in the field of Accounting, Analysis and Auditing. I gained extensive practical experience having worked in one of the Big 4 firms with a wide variety of projects representing various industries including Precious Metals Mining, Beverage, Building Materials, Hospitality, Agricultural Sector, Oilfield Services etc. In my previous role, I worked on major projects for multinational companies constituting the FTSE 100. My experience working for global companies has instilled core leadership values in me such as integrity, authenticity, aptitude to make a difference and bring value.
First, I believe that SaaS solutions are the future. Secondly, I was interested in the compliance industry as a former auditor. In general, I was drawn to the passion employees showed to their work and their dedication to help others in the organization.
I joined the company relatively recently, six months ago. Some moments that stand out to me so far include:
I’ll keep it simple. Be proactive! Your career is really in your hands!
On long winter evenings, I watch old Hollywood movies, listen to jazz, cross-stitch, and cook dinners with some master classes from YouTube. Another hobby of mine is volunteering. I adore horses and recently volunteered at the Horse Assisted Therapy Services in Monroe, LA.
