Product Specialists at Street Context work closely with our users throughout their journey with us. Our clients are the largest banks and broker-dealers in the world, and their users are our bread and butter. As a Product Specialist, you'll help bring them the value they signed up for by onboarding them, educating them on product workflows, communicating new feature enhancements and opportunities, and gathering user feedback to inform our product roadmap.
Our Product Specialists operate as a team under our Customer Success umbrella, driving value across our entire user base and the personas within it, all in the aim of user retention. As product experts, you will deeply understand how our users operate in their day to day, and communicate and train them on the workflows within Street Context that align to their role. Because our Product Specialist team spends the majority of their time engaging with our users, you will also work closely with our Product Management team to relay feedback that will inform our product roadmap.
You will execute user adoption and engagement strategies across all aspects of the client life cycle - pilots, onboarding, maintenance, renewals and any additional initiatives required to grow the accounts. Our Product Specialist team plays a crucial role in mitigating user churn by fighting to win back disengaged users. You must be creative with your strategies and persistent in your approach.
As a foundation, you must familiarize yourself and continually update your understanding of the market we operate in, our users' workflows, and how we fit into the broader enterprise on the sell side. Additionally, you’ll become a product expert, understanding how the Street Context offering augments the user’s workflow and how to convey the value proposition of our products effectively.

  • Supporting product direction: Because of your deep understanding of our products and users, you’ll be in a position to field feedback, identify product opportunities, and relay that information back to the organization (account teams, product, management) Your voice will create a continuous feedback loop to advocate for our users' needs.
  • Generating content: Identify content that our users are likely to care about based on their persona, and package it for distribution (across multiple channels). This content can be used for education, training, or email distribution by account teams
