Junior Graphic Designer, Restaurant Marketing

Los Angeles, CA
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 the ordering platform dedicated to helping local restaurants grow and compete in a sustainable way. At ChowNow, we’re driven by one purpose: to help local restaurants thrive. By helping diners discover their delicious creations and helping restaurants connect with customers new and old. 

ChowNow powers branded online ordering systems for independent restaurants across the US — via restaurants’ own websites, on Facebook and Google pages, through ChowNow-created apps, and via ChowNow’s website— while also providing our restaurant partners key customer insights and marketing support. 

Using ChowNow’s branded apps and website allows diners to connect with the best independent restaurants in their communities to order takeout (and in some cases delivery) in a way that’s sustainable and fair to restaurants.

This position is located in the Playa Vista neighborhood and tech hub of Los Angeles — just a few minutes from both the beach and the freeways. We believe in equal opportunity for all, and you should, too. We’ve been named a Best Place to Work, have been certified as a Great Place to Work, and have a whole bunch of happy employees on Glassdoor!

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.
