Work globally
Advance your international career.

When we hire you, we’ll be placing you with an international company as a telemarketer, working remotely. These companies range from digital marketing agencies to consulting firms to business coaches to startups. While you’ll technically be working as a freelancer for Optimate (rather than as a direct hire for the company), you’ll gain valuable CV-boosting international work experience with a US or European company and you’ll deepen your skillsets.

Work safely online
Guaranteed payment. Quality clients.

Many freelancers know the stress of having to chase down a client for payment that they’re owed. Optimate takes on all the payment risk for you by collecting an upfront deposit from each client. We then bill the client for the work you do and pay you ourselves. That means that even if a client doesn’t pay us, the deposit we collected from them still ensures that we’ll always pay you.

We’re also picky about our clients as it’s important to us that all of our freelancers are treated well. So that means we work hard to get you lined up with clients who know how to be good managers and who’ll treat you with respect.

Flexibility and freedom
Take your work anywhere.

The remote work economy brings tremendous freedom. Forget the long commutes, the traffic, the cubicle office environment, or the heavy-handed boss over your shoulder. Working online, for those who are skilled and work hard, gives you the freedom to work from wherever you want – from home, as you travel, or on a beach in Bali. Working with Optimate clients also comes with hour flexibility, so you can work part time or full time, and whenever you’re most productive and motivated.

Frequently Asked Questions
Any questions?

If you’re from Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, or Asia, you’re welcome to apply!

We pay $6 USD/hour to telemarketers and cold calling professionals.

In terms of how we pay, we do payouts every two weeks, usually via Uphold or Paypal. Those are our main payment providers; between the two of them, we can pay our workers in places as diverse as Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Even if you don’t have a Paypal or Uphold account, for instance, you can either set one up or ask a friend to use theirs.

We do. Our workers are all freelancers who work for Optimate (they are not in a direct employment relationship with the client, in other words). As such, all payment comes from us. We bill the client for your work, and then we pay you.

The work can either be part time or full time depending on your availability. You must have at least 20 hours/week free. Beyond that, however, we can set you up with a client who is looking for someone with your availability.

For telemarketing, being available during US time zones is important (since most of our clients are from the US). So if you work or study full time during US daytime hours, then we probably aren’t a good fit.

You would be working for us. We search out clients for you and then the clients contract with us to work with you. You are not in a direct employment relationship with the client, in other words. We bill the client and then pay you; the client does not pay you directly.
