Talktime is a place to find someone to talk to. We made it because we're on a mission to make mental health available for all. Talktime is for any person who needs help or wants to offer help. No credentials required - just a cool personality. We have been around for over a year. Talktime is a remote team with headquarters in Boston, MA.
In this remote role, you are an independent contractor / freelancer. You are your own boss. You are 100% responsible for setting your own price (rates), schedule and terms when working with clients. You may teach on one, two or many different topics or skills. You are not limited by your job title or the position you are applying for.
Our community is diverse. We have people from all walks of life, education backgrounds and skill levels. We welcome current students (undergrad or graduate), recent graduates and industry experts. A common characteristic of our community is that we have a strong passion to be a teacher, a mentor or a friend to a person in need. As mentioned above, a good personality is a plus. Keeping things fun and light-hearted is a must have.
Everything we do is different. This is not your typical part-time remote job. To help you advance your career, we provide two main things - Clients and Community.
(1) Clients - We have a huge network of students, parents, adults and private clients who are looking for help. We will connect you to them at no cost to you. In other words, 0% referral fee - no commissions, no monthly fees, no hidden fees. This is an industry first if you have ever worked on popular internet marketplaces.
(2) Community - Working in isolation is hard. The pandemic has challenged us to rethink how we must care for ourselves and others in a virtual world. We provide fun and welcoming environment so you can do your best, remote work. Take a peek at our company values.
At the end of the day, you are 100% responsible for your own success. If you can accept this, then we have free trainings and peer support to help you take your career to the next level.
If you are lazy. If you have a victim mentality. If you do not know how to Google something. If you are expecting us or your teammates to give you everything. If you cannot think for yourself. You will not do well here. We are not here to poke or prod. We are not here to sugar coat the truth. We set an expectation and it's up to you and your team to reach or exceed the standard.
Our hiring process is untraditional. We do not want your cover letter or resume. We also do not have an interview process. As soon as you submit your interest for the job, you're hired. From there, we welcome you to start the on-boarding process. Follow the instructions. Attend our live events to ask questions, get feedback, and make new friends.
You can be the person you needed when you were going through a tough time. Teach a skill. Talk about your passions. Help someone navigate the unknown. Talk about anything and everything. Apply today and welcome to the team.
Thank you for applying.
