Territory Manager (Outside Sales)
Are you a self-motivated and gregarious business development representative that wants to make money selling an innovative technology? Do you want to join a high energy company with an amazing culture? If you thrive in a competitive and collaborative team environment then this may be position for you!
About The Position:
The Territory Manager role is a full-time, high base salary + generous commission outside sales position based in Chicago. You will sell online ordering and marketing solutions in person within an assigned territory. Most of your time will be spent in the field or working from your home office…which provides lots of freedom and requires self-discipline. We’ll provide you with the right tools and on-going training while you grow our restaurant network and grow your career.
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.
Diversity, teamwork, and mutual respect are among our core company values. And we pride ourselves on giving our teams plenty of opportunities to make their mark. To date we’ve created over 11,000 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.
