IT Engineer

Los Angeles, CAIT /Full-Time /On-Site

About Us:

ChowNow’s vision is to become the leading North American platform connecting diners and independent restaurants for at-home dining. The ChowNow Platform continues to grow its product offerings and bring restaurants and diners closer together. Our marketplace provides a commission-free ordering for restaurants nationwide and diners with an ever-growing selection of independent restaurants. Our demand network provides diners with the ability to order where they’re already online, including Google, Yelp, Instagram, Snap, and many others. And our white-labeled online ordering system provides restaurants with a branded experience for diners on their website and their own iOS and Android apps for a reasonable monthly fee regardless of order volume. To date, we’ve created over 20,000 apps for our restaurant partners – something that’s never been done before in our category. We operate this way because of our belief in being fair, sustainable, and equitable with our restaurant partners and the same goes for our culture.

Diversity, teamwork, and mutual respect are among our core company values. We pride ourselves on giving our teams plenty of opportunities to make their mark.

Join us and help ensure ChowNow becomes the diner’s first choice for socially responsible online ordering. Together we can preserve neighborhood flavor, one restaurant at a time. 

About the Position:

As an IT Engineer, you’ll support the entire organization with software, equipment, and services that will empower our employees to do their best work. This is a role that maximizes learning in everything related to IT and scaling operations at a high growth tech company while helping build a product you can be proud of.  

The IT Engineer owns everything employees need for full productivity. Every day is different, and we hope that’s an exciting premise for you – in one day, you could be helping create new IT automation, assist with hardware issues, roll out new software, and find new ways to support remote and on-premise work. You’ll know you’re successful when internal clients can count on reliable day-to-day customer service. IT is a critical part of the employee experience, and our mission is to build a great place to work.

Our ideal candidate is first and foremost a service-oriented helper. We’d also like to see high tolerance for ambiguity and an analytical mind: you should constantly be asking yourself ‘How can I make this better?’, no matter what you’re working on. Most of all, we hope you’ll bring willingness and enthusiasm for upholding our values and helping build a truly amazing workplace.
