Marketing + Business Development Internship


Talimer, a recently launched startup, is blowing up what’s wrong with the “gig economy.” We’re putting freelancers first in a unique marketplace that offers tech professionals access to jobs, benefits and more while making it easier for businesses to secure hard-to-find, on-demand resources. Talimer is growing and empowering a diverse community of freelancers so that they can feel fulfilled, confident and secure.

Talimer Believes: We believe in inclusion. We also believe it is the responsibility of the people in power to make it happen. This isn’t a new belief. It’s something we have been dedicated to in our professional lives for years. And we’re tired of how long it’s taking for America to make real progress. That’s why inclusion, diversity, equity and access are priorities for our team, and in the freelancers we support. More opportunity for all means a better world for all. Everyone deserves an equal opportunity to kick ass.

We believe in integrity and trust. Say what you do and do what you say. It’s a simple lesson you learned young, and it’s also at the heart of every successful business relationship. We’re here to do what’s right, not just what makes the most money. Expect straight talk, no B.S., and promises kept.

We believe people come first. In a world where marble-hearted corporations often treat people like numbers on a spreadsheet, we take a different approach. Connection, support, and being encouraged to be unapologetically yourself are what build enthusiasm, loyalty and commitment among teams. When you have that, profits and success follow. Because then you have people who are willing to go the extra mile, and the last painful inch, to get across the finish line.
