Office Hours: I'm the senior market operations manager at Lyft. I'm Emily Ellis.Featured
Hi Everyone! I’m Emily Ellis, Senior Market Operations Manager at Lyft, where I focus on identifying and building the programs, partnerships and strategies that support our local communities.I joined the Lyft team in 2018, making the decision to take the leap and leave my last job where I was comfortable - while 7 months pregnant! I loved my previous job but I was no longer learning or growing. At Lyft, I have grown personally and professionally, while supporting a brand and mission I love. I support the Mid-Atlantic region as an Operations Manager and continue to lead all major lines of business and local programs across DC, Maryland and Virginia, including local partnerships, business development, community engagement and logistics. Prior to Lyft, I led teams at 2U, a global leader in education technology; SocialCode, a marketing and insights partner that manages digital advertising for leading brands; and LivingSocial, the marketplace to buy and share the best things to do in your city and beyond. At each of these companies I honed skills in operations, process development and program management. Ask me anything about running operations and development for companies of all sizes, working at a national HQ vs. a regional office, working at the intersection of transportation and technology, managing large teams (now remotely!), and thriving in constant change.
