Connect companies and freelancers to build trust across your platform

Both freelancers and companies expect a messaging feature on a freelancing platform. Not only does it make the user experience better as users don't need to switch the conversation elsewhere, but it also builds trust. Users on both sides can access message history and proof if one party doesn't respect the contract.

If not for the chat we would continue to devalue our brand by not having FreeUp front and centre with both clients and freelancers at all times. We chose TalkJS because it was easy to deploy.

Connect recruiters and jobseekers with chat to increase response rate

When a recruiter on your team is available, conversations with jobseekers can take place immediately. Recruiters can get to know the candidate before jumping on a video call, and candidates can inquire about the position by simply sending a message on the website chat.

Conversations shift to email when a recruiter or a candidate is not available, giving everyone the ability to send and receive messages even when offline.

Integrate chat with a few lines of code

You just need to tell us which conversation to display, who's chatting, and where to show it on the page. We take care of the rest! And if you want a deeper integration, we have all the APIs you'll need to add functionality or integrate into your own systems.

// Synchronize user data and set up
const currentUser = new Talk.User({
id: 79302, // your own user id
name: "Nina Caldwell",
email: "nina.caldwell@example.com" // for offline email fallback
});
const session = new Talk.Session({
appId: "9352938974", // your TalkJS account id
me: currentUser // make Nina the active user
});
const other = new Talk.User({
id: "654321",
name: "Sebastian",
email: "sebastian@example.com"
});
// Add users to the conversation
const conversation = session.getOrCreateConversation(Talk.oneOnOneId(me, other));
conversation.setParticipant(me);
conversation.setParticipant(other);
// All set! Let's turn a div into Nina's messaging center
const inbox = session.createInbox();
inbox.mount(document.getElementById("chat-container"));
Themes

Tune the look and feel of your chat

You can deeply customise the chat UI with HTML and CSS. With TalkJS Themes you have complete control over the styling, the layout, and document structure of the chat messages and the possibility to show metadata.
