What is ThinkPod?

ThinkPod is what happens when a psychotherapist and a data engineer come together to solve
tech needs while focusing on bringing playful fun into the professional arena. It is a social network
that seeks to connect people from all over the world to work on projects that meet their aspirations,
needs, and professional goals. Because all of your connections are purposeful and made with intent
— before any communication occurs, spam is reduced and like-minded individuals get to make
meaningful connections.

What is a pod?

A pod is where the magic happens! It is the place where like-minded individuals can get creative
and push their ideas forward. It is the place for making connections in ThinkPod.

What fees does ThinkPod charge?

ThinkPod is free for all users, and it always will be! There are three paid plans, however, that help
you get more out of your membership. These plans are Starter, Pro, and Premium. At each tier, you
will get even more features, more ways to expand your exposure, and more ways to succeed in your
creative and professional pursuits.

How do I get an invite to ThinkPod?

That’s an easy one…BE AWESOME! The more awesome you are, the more likely someone will slide
you one of their invites. Users are encouraged to invite the boldest and brightest people they know.
So, when you find that shiny, new ThinkPod invite in your inbox, remember someone thinks you are
pretty dang cool.

How do I customize my profile page?

On your profile page, you should see little cartoon pencils in the corners of each of the sections.
These will allow you to edit all your profile so that other users can get to know all about you. As you
move up to a paid subscription, you will unlock even more ways to customize your space.

Where is the privacy policy?

You will find ThinkPod’s privacy policy right here.

How will people find my profile?

If you want to be found by other users, the first step is to set your profile to public. There is a little
toggle button on the top of your profile that can be switched from private to public at will. Once you
are ready for the world, slide it to public, and you will be search-able! While some people may be
searching for you by name, it is more likely that people will be searching by skill. Be sure to fill out
your skill section as completely as possible.

Is there a limit on the connections I can make?

Unlike some of the other networking sites out there, there is absolutely no limit on the number of
connections you can make at ThinkPod. There are limits on the number of Pods that you can create,
and that amount goes up with each membership tier.

Can I direct message people?

Yes! Once you have joined or created a Pod, you will be able to direct message with your Pod
members. Remember, Pods are the gateway to all communications between ThinkPod users.

How do I report spam?

We will try our best to keep spammers off the platform, but it is possible they will slip through
once and awhile. If you need to report spam, reach out to us at hi@thinkpod.io (You can also use
this email to ask questions, report bugs, or anything!)

How do I request a feature or give feedback?

We would love to hear your feedback! Check out roadmap.thinkpod.io.

While Charlie has only been in tech for just over a year, learning has been a lifelong passion. From cybersecurity to product ownership to software engineering, he leave's no stone unturned when it comes to the tech space (except sales, Charlie is not ideal at sales.) When he isn't working in tech, some of Charlie's passions include raising teenagers, dogs, developing his software engineering skills, and expanding his "tethics" network!

Ronny Diaz

Designer

During my years at university, I studied graphic design, but my innate curiosity with all aspects of art and designled me to complement my undergraduate degree with photography, illustration, and plastic arts as well. This well-rounded education has served me well when working with companies to create their brand identity. Now, my biggest challenge is creating a design here at Thinkpod that inspires you to make real connections and pursue your own creative endeavors.

Gabriela Diaz

Director of Operations

I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela; from a very young age, I liked to have my things organized and planned; I could make a schedule of the games that I was going to play that day, you could say that a planning role was always in me. Life has led me to connect with people who have contributed to my personal and professional growth in one way or another. I am one of those individuals who think that life will take care of the rest when you do well and with good energy. I came to Thinkpod thanks to the connections I made in the work and personal world, which is why I trust this platform a lot and all the great things that people can achieve.

Business Development Representative

I have always loved languages, Learning English has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Being able to communicate with people from all around the world and understanding them is an amazing feeling. That's why I want to become a polyglot one day. So far I have been studying Japanese and looking forward to learning Portuguese! Working with different people as a Virtual Assistant has taught me so much about interactions and how important connections are. And it helped me to further develop skills like Social Media, Community Management, Content Creation, and Business Development. As a Virtual Assistant, I was able to meet Jess not realizing that it was the start of something incredible. When I heard about ThinkPod I thought it was a great idea to help people connect, collaborate and create. Networking is one of the most important things you can do nowadays. 失敗は成功のもと (Shippai wa seikoo no moto) "Failure teaches success"

Blake Bradford

Web Developer and Designer

As a self-taught developer, I’ve often struggled with finding a place to fit in. I began to learn programming as a hobby a couple years ago, and almost immediately found myself at a crossroads when I decided to make a career switch into full-time web development. I had volunteered as a developer on civic coding projects for about a year, but still found it difficult to get my foot in the door; too many entry-level positions require 2-3 years of professional experience and a computer science degree to be even considered for an interview! I’m thrilled to be a part of bringing ThinkPod to life, and to help other driven professionals with non-traditional backgrounds break through their own barriers to success.
