Talkiatry transforms psychiatry into the accessible, human, and empowering experience it should be.  

We were co-founded by a patient and a triple-board-certified psychiatrist to solve the problems both groups face in accessing and providing the highest quality mental healthcare.    

60% of adults in the U.S. with a diagnosable mental illness go untreated every year because care is inaccessible, while 45% of clinicians are out of network with insurers because reimbursement rates are low and paperwork is unduly burdensome.    

With innovative technology and a human-centered philosophy, we provide patients with the care they need—and allow psychiatrists to focus on why they got into medicine.    

We’re seeking a progressive HR Business Partner (Manager Level) to align with various functional leaders and client groups as we grow and scale Talkiatry to a mid-sized organization (moving from 500 ppl currently to 1,200 ppl by Q2 2023).

Due to this, we’re seeking candidates who know what great looks like and want the opportunity to shape HRBP processes from the beginning phases.
