An Insider's view of Stocktwits

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Stocktwits has a lot of appreciation for our lives outside of work. Our employees have a lot of interests, both professional and personal, and we want them to be able to experience all of them. We hold people accountable to getting their work done but we have a culture where as long as this is happening we trust everyone to do it on their own terms


Director of Data Science

What projects are you most excited about?

It is fun to be a designer on our brokerage product, Trade App. We're equipping investors with never before seen functionality. User testing will help us validate our hypotheses and iterate the design to be a frictionless and enjoyable experience. We believe design is better together by practicing an inclusive branded product design process.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Originally I joined as Community Manager which allowed me to start from the ground with our users and product. With the help of my manager, I was able to leverage this knowledge into a product role. I was supported and encouraged by management, which also provided me with the necessary training and tools to be able to succeed in this transition.


Product Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

One of our core values is for the team to realize they are here because their opinions are valued and their thoughts and ideas, respected. This common belief enables an idea meritocracy which creates the unique style, voice and products that are the ST brand. It also makes ST a direct reflection of its people, who are both talented and interesting.



What are some social events your company does?

Stocktwits hosts a great Christmas party, last year we had a hypnotist who brought down the house! We have in office trivia tournaments, outings to the golfing range and monthly happy hours. It's great to get the team together, out of the office.
