Talkiatry transforms psychiatry with accessible, human, and responsible care. We’re a national mental health practice 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 treatment.   

 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. 

About the role:

We are actively seeking a Senior Copywriter to create engaging, on-brand, results-driven storytelling and copywriting that communicates, educates, and inspires our audience. You will sit on the Marketing team, reporting to the Copy Lead, and work closely with the Design, Operations, Product, and Clinical teams on a daily basis.  

We’re looking for a conceptual and creative thinker who is a self-starter and collaborative to the core. They’ll think and write patient-first, and have a deep understanding of and empathy for your audience’s point of view. They’ll be familiar with the mental healthcare space and be excited about the opportunity to help people find care that’s right for them. They’ll have a nuanced understanding of voice and can maintain a brand identity while shifting tones and media. If you recognize the power of language to establish an identity, elevate an experience, evoke a feeling, and motivate a patient, if you’re always looking for the story—we’re looking for you.

  • Tackle old challenges in new ways—bringing fresh ideas on how to help a patient or get a prospect to take a desired action
  • Continually redefine processes to effectively deliver high-quality content in a fast-paced startup environment in a timely manner

  • Innovation and creativity: You’re an expansive strategic thinker who can explore a variety of solutions for every challenge
  • Quality-orientation: As a steward of the brand voice, you’re integral to watching over our processes and messaging to ensure it’s free from errors and consistent across channels
  • Integrity: As a mental healthcare company, responsibility and ethical practices protect the health of our patients
  • Applied learning: When new information is available, we’re able to incorporate it into our messaging to level up the quality and refine our approach
