Stripe's UK CTO leaves for a new venture

The executive arm of Stripe's UK division has been going through some big changes. At the start of the year, UK CEO Max Roberts left for tech firm IFS; now, this month, Companies House filings suggest two CTOs have stood down from the payments fintech's UK board on the same day.

Emma Burrows was Stripe's head of engineering in London, joining in 2020 from beauty firm Charlotte Tilbury. She had previously worked on AdTech at Google for seven years after graduating from Cambridge. She was Stripe's first engineering hire in London.

Burrows left on April 5th, according to Companies House, and seems to have a new gig lined up. She is the sole director of a newly incorporated firm called Embur Tech Ltd.

That same day, Jurgen Van Gael stepped down. He was a much more recent hire, arriving last February, and still works at the company as head of engineering for payouts.
