Stripe is the most valuable private company in the US. The company started out life as /dev/payments helmed by two brothers from Ireland. Today, Stripe is synonymous with payments and tallies more than 15 products. From fraud to reporting, company incorporation to carbon removal, Stripe has redefined itself again and again. This level of success requires masterful leadership.
To continue our “Month of Scale,” Redpoint Office Hours will welcome Stripe’s Chief Corporate Advisor and former COO, Claire Hughes Johnson on Wednesday, October 27th at 10:00 AM PT.
Over the past seven years, Claire has been responsible for scaling Stripe’s worldwide business operations to meet the needs of its rapidly-growing user base. Bringing with her over 20 years of experience in sales, product marketing and operational scaling, she continues to provide strategic counsel to Stripe’s leadership team as an Advisor.
Prior to joining Stripe, Claire led various product and operations teams at Google, most recently for their Self-Driving Cars project. She also managed Global Online Sales and Operations as well as the business teams for Gmail, Google Checkout, and Google Apps.
In this upcoming discussion, Redpoint Managing Director, Tomasz Tunguz, will join Claire to discuss the below and more!
- The importance of a user manual for managers
- Transitioning from a single product company to a multi-product company
- How to scaffold a company for success at different stages
- The common characteristics of hypergrowth companies: similarities between Stripe and Google
Look forward to seeing you there!
