An Insider's view of Stream

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Casual, friendly and helpful. We do a lot together: lunches, fitness classes, happy hours and of course celebrating successes.

Scott Lasica

CSO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I start off every project with the sales team to make sure the handoff for a new personalization client goes smoothly and expectations are clear. Then, I work with customer success to make sure that communication is solid. During this whole process, I often reach out to devs. It's super easy to directly communicate with with anyone at Stream!

Neha

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Stream as 1 of 2 BDRs (business development reps). Over the course of the past 2.5 years my position has evolved a few times. I initially moved into the role of BDR Manager, then into an inside sales role and finally become an Account Executive, which is the position I I hold today. I am really excited about the future of Stream.

Dani

Sales

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Stream emphasizes mutual trust and respect. Employees are provided autonomy and encouraged to speak up with their ideas. At Stream, we believe that it is vital to genuinely listen to and consider every employee's idea to push the company forward – all thoughts are well heard and, more often than not, put into play.

Nick

Director of Marketing

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m most excited about our new mobile chat SDKs. They release the full power of stream chat in a ready-to-use library!
