Working at Talkative


What is Talkative?

Talkative is a vibrant startup that provides real time customer engagement software. Our mission is to bring telephony into websites. We help organisations around the world communicate with their customers through their website.


What does our product do?

The Talkative solution allows you to call companies from within their website. Instead of dialing a phone number, you can be instantly connected to the right person who can guide you around the website. Companies get deeper insight into how and why customers contact them, while providing memorable customer experiences. Webcalling is a new concept, but Talkative is pioneering the adoption of the idea. Read more >


How is the team structured?

Talkative is organised so that the best ideas win. Everyone has a right to voice their opinion and to contribute to discussions. We want people to test our assumptions, to improve what we do and to help build a lasting company. Whether you are an experienced engineer, or an ambitious student, you will be able to make a tangible impact: Software Academy Case Study - Talkative


What are we looking for?

If you are intelligent, ambitious and interested in technology, we want to hear from you. We enjoy working with new technology and we want people with similar interests to join us. While a strong work ethic is key, we provide a collaborative environment to help you grow and continue learning.

“Working at Talkative has been one of the toughest and greatest experiences in my career. The best part is the feeling of being included in all the key decisions and discussions. Having an overview of how my work was adding to the overall company goals helped me to feel a lot less like a small cog in a giant corporate structure. Another bonus of working here is the job flexibility, you’ll readily get to discover and learn new languages and frameworks, so there is never a moment of boredom.”
