Introducing new benefits programs and Web3 jobs.

Medical and retirement benefits. Get access to top health, dental, and vision insurance at a 20-50% discount through the Healthcare Benefits beta program launched with Opolis — plus retirement options including IRAs, Group & Solo 401(k) plans, and other benefits, too. 


“I saved over $500 per month compared to health insurance on the government exchange, and the fact that it’s accepted across state lines is huge,” says Alexa Green, a Full Stack Engineer on Braintrust.

Career mentorship and exclusive training. Work for yourself, not by yourself, with coaching from highly knowledgeable peers through the Career Mentorship beta program, plus more opportunities to upskill through Braintrust Academy courses and connecting with experts in the robust Braintrust Discord community.


“My mentor’s honesty and feedback was invaluable. I got critical insight into the psychology of a recruiter and how to land a job thinking from their perspective,” says Nse-Abasi Etim, a Braintrust Talent who is participating in the program as a Mentee.


Even more exciting Web3 opportunities.

You want to engage with exciting, meaningful work. You want to build “the next big thing,” but don’t know how to get started.


End the frustrating search with the one stop solution for finding Web3 work, as Braintrust expands its early beta with new grants, part-time and full-time work from top Web3 partners DFinity, Decentology, Sifchain, ConsenSys Mesh, and Provenance Blockchain Foundation.

How freedom with stability empowers your career.

Top knowledge workers want flexibility in their careers. That desire has only increased during the “Great Resignation” during the pandemic.  According to the January 2022 Future Forum report, 78% of workers want location flexibility and 95% want flexible hours.


Yet while freelancing has many benefits like this desired flexibility, it sometimes lacks the stability that full-time employment offers. For many, employer-sponsored health insurance is the biggest one. A third of knowledge workers said they would quit if healthcare weren’t tied to their employer in a survey conducted last September.


What would having more career stability mean for your freelance career?


Would you be more selective in the projects you take on? Ask for higher rates and better contracts from clients? Take bigger risks, knowing you have a solid foundation to fall back on?


With Braintrust's new Healthcare Benefits beta program with Opolis, freelancers can finally access top insurance options at a reasonable price by cutting payments by 20-50%.


These plans travel with you, unlike state exchange plans, an essential benefit for remote workers.


Plus, as Braintrust Talent, freelancers still get the support and community of full-time employment.


Through the Career Mentorship beta program, experienced Braintrust Talent guide new Talent in 1:1 sessions to get their first contract — helping by reviewing proposals and profiles as well as conducting mock interviews.


You get even more expansive networking opportunities than you would just interacting with your own work orbit, thanks to the robust Braintrust Discord community and global network of 50,000+ Talent (50% of whom are based outside the U.S.).


And nothing says stability like maximizing your income. You’ll never have to worry about being paid what you deserve since Braintrust publishes current market rates live on the network dashboard.


All this means spending more time doing what you love. 


 “I don’t want to be a marketer. I just want to design cool things and help people. Braintrust made that a reality for me,” says Kate Bagoy, who made $150,000 in just six months on the network.


Ready to start getting hired with clients like Nestle, WeWork, AirBnB, Nike and more?


Take the risk out of freelancing by joining the network that is owned by you and works for you.
