Street Contxt is the new way that Wall Street finds, shares and collaborates on ideas and market-moving trends. Drawing on leaders of the consumer web for inspiration, we’ve created a better way to share information globally for one of the most influential, dynamic, and complex industries in the world.
Work with Exceptional People
We perform at our professional and personal maximums, bringing unique expertise to a firmly established culture of learning. We are compassionate, supportive, and encourage each other to master our crafts, grow into experts, and share knowledge within the company and our community. We work, play and win as a team.
Together, we share in the ownership of the company and are always open to improvement. We read, share stories and continue expand our knowledge. Every team member is responsible for their deliverables, decision-making and contributions to the core product. We are all accountable to the organization’s greatness; being individually exceptional is not enough.
Foster a Transparent Workplace
Our success is founded on integrity and mutual respect. Weekly stand-ups, company blog posts, demo days and lunch-and-learns give an organization-wide perspective of the business and allows us to master our domains while teaching others. Our leadership exercises full disclosure, and every opinion is considered when decisions are being made. Access the people and resources you need; there are no closed doors.
Attack Complex and Challenging Problems
We are leading the change in a large and profitable industry by fundamentally rewriting how business is conducted. We are building an exciting product that will make a significant and measurable impact on the world of institutional finance and make a difference in the lives of real people. We are not bogged down with the way things are; we design for the way things should be. Each member makes significant contributions to the core product and will share in its success.
“Helping build a start-up with complex and interesting technical challenges gives us a lot of freedom to investigate and introduce cutting edge technologies to our platform. Having the opportunity to work alongside people who are super talented, yet respectful and humble; is the best part.”
Customer Experience Team
“When our clients use Street Contxt, they become more effective, efficient, and make smarter decisions. I get to help ensure they’re completely unblocked and supported on the platform, so that they can be successful throughout their day.”
Business Development Team
“Street Contxt addresses a growing gap in communication inefficiencies in a trillion dollar industry. I help bring this tool to firms, educate teams on its benefits, and empower companies to operate more efficiently and from a powerful place of knowledge.”
A WORK ENVIRONMENT WITHOUT LIMITS
We thrive in the heart of the capital markets
Our Toronto office is located downtown, near our clients and on the transit line. Our New York apartment gives our employees a home base when travelling for business or participating in our office exchange program.
We’re autonomous and accountable
We trust each other’s actions, decisions, judgement, and work. That means micro-managers don’t exist here. We get our work done by taking the approach that works best for both us and the team. Plus, we don’t waste time filling out timesheets or vacation request forms.
We enjoy eating well
We love food. Yeah, we said it. A variety of breakfast foods are available to our early risers, healthy lunches prepared same-day from restaurants around the city arrive at lunch time, and night crawlers can always find prepared meals on hand. Lest we forget the snackers - you’ll discover utopia in our stocked fridge and pantry.
We learn together
Every two months we devour an industry or product related publication, reflect on it as a group, and take action in areas that need improvement. Ongoing lunch-and-learns expose team members to all areas of the business, allowing us to find synergies and uncover new interests, together.
We take care
Our comprehensive benefits package frees us from paying out of pocket for something as important as our health. We lead active and happy lifestyles which in turn allows us to best perform in the office. The paramedical coverage includes specialist services such as massage, acupuncture and chiropractic to keep our body healthy and our mind sharp.
We build meaningful relationships
Our days are spent thinking through complex scenarios and tackling major projects. In celebration of our accomplishments, we refresh our minds and recharge our systems. Our team can be found enjoying Jay’s games, the Escape Room, and all the city has to offer. Friday afternoons are sacred. A recap of accomplishments and a glimpse ahead, over a carefully curated selection of beverages, serves as a kick-off to a well-deserved weekend.
We make things happen
It isn’t that they can’t see the solution, it’s that they can’t see the problem. Words to live by from G. K. Chesterson. Understand this, and understand why early-stage stock options are so exciting.
We use cool tools
Whatever is needed to get the job done. Apple products plus an extra monitor and choice of peripherals? Sure. Subscription to Todoist? No problem. Noise-cancelling headphones? Done. We will provide you with the resources you need to perform your best.
We heart rewards
We see the value in teaming up with amazing people from our professional pasts. If we hire someone from an internal referral, we'll share sweet victory via cash/options reward for hooking it all up.
