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, Google, Instagram, 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.

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

Senior 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.
