Good luck! You got this! Companies that grow quickly may be lacking for processes and controls so you could maybe speak to implementing something there. Could also make sure they are efficient as possible by automating and using services offered by providers. Also, given their growth, wonder if they have evaluated their program to make sure it’s providing value to their much larger employee base (has diverse options) and drives desired behavior. Lastly maybe there are opportunities for cost efficiencies since they are bigger - self insured/stop loss changes, better pricing with vendors.

Also bring up the big picture, IT integration angle. Even though it is a startup they should make sure they are considering HR tech/SaaS options as a whole that integrate with finance and save time doing things manually. Do your homework and show broader awareness of the HR software market.

Ask them about longer term growth plans as well. While they may need you to put controls in place for a 4K company, if they grow at a rapid place, what you put in may not work in a couple of years. Better to plan for some flexibility
