Account Coordinator

Kansas City, MO
Do you love the restaurant and technology industries? Are you looking for an opportunity to develop your client servicing skills, while also learning sales, organizational, and time management techniques? If working on a collaborative, cross departmental team with high energy and levels of activity interests you, then we might have the perfect opportunity. 

About the Position:
As an Account Coordinator, you will be the first warm-welcome to a newly signed ChowNow restaurant client. You will bring your strong communication skills, your high level of organization, and your subtle sales finesse to this fast-paced, KPI-focused role. Your days will be spent managing a high volume of inbound and outbound emails and phone calls while owning the onboarding process and client relationship until the point of launch, when the account is seamlessly handed off to a post-live Restaurant Success Manager. 

You will have the unique opportunity to perfect your time management and client servicing skills at a company and on a team that is dedicated to your personal and professional growth. You will gain immense operational knowledge and first hand experience of the restaurant and technology industries.

Your success will be measured by your ability to efficiently collect client assets and information, coordinate behind-the-scenes account setup across multiple departments, upsell on various products, effectively train clients on our technology and process, accurately log all activity and data in Salesforce, prevent pre-live churn, and position all restaurants for a successful launch.

A one-of-a-kind workplace on a mission to preserve one-of-a-kind food.

ChowNow is on a mission to help local, independent restaurants thrive. Because of the vitality they bring to our neighborhoods and cities. Because of the amazing, one-of-a-kind food they create. And because the restaurant business is tougher than ever -- thanks to increasing competition, complexity, and the rise of third-party delivery services that gouge restaurants on every sale. 

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. 

We pride ourselves on giving our teams plenty of opportunities to make their mark. To date we’ve created over 14,000 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) and by browsing our open roles at Together we can preserve neighborhood flavor, one restaurant at a time.
