Los Angeles, CA
Marketing
Full-time

Are you a seasoned marketing leader excited to take on your next challenge? Do you want to help leverage a powerful and well-loved brand to further accelerate ChowNow’s growth? Are you the kind of leader who is part communication strategist, part analyst, and part brand guru?

We are looking for a VP of Marketing to help us with our next phase of growth — which includes a strategic addition of a consumer-based online ordering and media platform.  You’ve had success leading a team at a company with a strong pattern of product marketing wins and have foresight on where B2B and Consumer Marketing is headed next.

We are looking for a great communicator who can build/lead a team capable of straddling B2B/consumer, growth and brand, all with a scrappy data-driven focus.

The VP of Marketing at ChowNow will be responsible for leading, developing and growing all aspects of marketing with a focus on brand, communications, and PR. The individual must be data-informed with a keen eye for high-quality brand communications. You’re forward-thinking with a comprehensive knowledge of the performance marketing ecosystem, as well as a strong and collaborative team leader — excited to roll up your sleeves to drive results with your team and colleagues.

Our Marketing org is a small, but mighty team with a track record of success. We already generate a steady flow of inbound leads, organize a slew of external communications, and have developed deep internal relationships to get things done across the company. Reports to CEO; directly manages Marketing department (currently 4 people).
