Do you believe that a restaurant’s brand plays an important factor in their success? Are you an ambitious designer looking to collaborate and learn in a fast-paced environment? Look no further, ChowNow is seeking a detail oriented Junior Graphic Designer with a positive attitude to join the Design Team. We know you’ll be a good fit because you’re a team player with a thirst to learn. You stay inspired and take pride in putting your best work into the world and we do too. 
About Us:
ChowNow is unique among tech startups in the restaurant space. We power branded online ordering systems for independent restaurants across North America – via websites, Facebook, Google, and through branded iOS and Android apps – and we do it all for a reasonable monthly fee regardless of order volume. We operate this way because of our belief in being fair, sustainable, and equitable with our restaurant partners. And the same goes for our workplace. 
Diversity, teamwork, and mutual respect are among our core company values. And we pride ourselves on giving our teams plenty of opportunities to make their mark. To date we’ve created over 11,000 apps for our restaurant partners – something that’s never been done before in our category. And as we expand to new markets, further spreading the word about the ChowNow difference, those opportunities to create, build, and grow will only increase. If this sounds like the kind of workplace, and the kind of mission, that appeals to you, we’d love to talk. 
Learn more by checking out our reviews on Glassdoor (they’re excellent). Together we can preserve neighborhood flavor, one restaurant at a time.
About the Position:
At ChowNow, we believe that a restaurant’s brand should be at the forefront and we are dedicated to helping them compete with the big guys. Restaurant assets come to us in a variety of shapes, sizes and types. Your responsibility is to evaluate and make sure the assets meet requirements for launch. If they do not, you will be required to estimate the time that it will take you to help them meet those standards and execute, whether that be by recreating, tracing, rebuilding or redesigning them so that they are ready for printing and publishing. You will help to create customized marketing materials using and adjusting our pre-existing templates as needed. This is a high volume, fast turn around position where you will need to keep on your toes and be prepared to collaborate across departments to achieve the best possible results for our restaurant partners.

An Insider's view of ChowNow

What are some social events your company does?

Where do I begin?! There’s the ChowNow book club, running club, DineNow, our coffee-match program... Basically if there’s a will, there’s a way to integrate and meet just about anybody! DineNow is a favorite of mine where every month we mark our calendars and head out to a local LA restaurant for a delicious reminder of why our work is so valuable.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Starting as a graphic design intern and now working as a front-end developer I can definitely attest to ChowNow being an amazing place to grow your career. I've been here a little more than 5 years, and am still growing constantly both personally and professionally.

Kim

Front End Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

As ChowNow’s Director of Client Operations, my teams are responsible for handling the implementation of our products and services into restaurants. Because we interact with restaurants every day, we are able to act as informants to ChowNow and help drive our product and services roadmap to solve the most pressing problems our client's encounter.

Stephanie

Director of Growth Operations

How does your team reward individual success?

Individual success is more than metrics. It’s about being celebrated by your peers when you work hard to accomplish your goals. This takes different forms like winning Weekly Spotlight—or the Frog Trophy, which goes to the top performer because everyone deserves to be recognized for their accomplishments and celebrated amongst the company.
