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.
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. At work and through our events, it’s easy to connect with the team and mentors to learn how to hone your craft or uncover new skills. 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. Our interns are full-time contributors of the team, and lead important projects through their work term. We are all accountable to the organization’s greatness; being individually exceptional is not enough.
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.
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.
“My work term at Street Contxt has allowed me to see an idea into production. I have been able to develop my technical skillset, attacking brand new features while having the ability to manage my time responsibly between daily tasks. I have found a more concentrated career path to follow in software development after having the opportunity to work on my own projects that were relevant to my interests and skill set.”
“Street Contxt stood out as a co-op placement because they expect every employee – including co-ops – to make a meaningful impact within the company, and they provide the tools and assistance to make that a daily reality. The Q.A. team did not simply want me to provide support or assistance to the team; they expected substantial results, and wanted me to participate in and lead projects that made significant impacts to the product. It felt great to contribute in such a meaningful way, and made my time at Street Contxt both enriching and fulfilling.”
“Throughout my co-op term, I developed my communication skills above the ability of any role within a large company. Because Street Contxt is a start-up, I had to take on a larger and more active role than I had in the past. I was challenged to step out of my comfort zone and exceed my own personal expectations. I’m more equipped for the job market as I can now precisely and efficiently accomplish complex tasks.”
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 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.
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.
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.
