Emily Tsitrian leads a Professional Services team at Stripe. With over seven years in tech management, she’s lead teams at various companies, from mature public businesses to startups, including a unicorn startup that grew into a global presence while she managed one of its brand new departments.

After her first promotion to manager, Emily had to get scrappy and creative to figure it out on her own and learn effective leadership through trial and error. Now, she hires and coaches team members into their own management careers. She also hosts the manager.flow Podcast, where she interviews a diverse and experienced team of people managers about their journey and the highs and lows along their career path.

Emily graduated from UC Berkeley in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Her leadership expertise has been featured in the New York Times and she was a featured speaker for the 2020 (Not IRL) Pride Summit.

A native of South Dakota, Emily lives in Chicago with her spouse Robbie and senior rescue mutt Mar. You can usually find her hiking, learning French, or attending themed dinner parties. Learn more at www.emilytsitrian.com.
