Are you an experienced Salesforce developer looking to become a full-time, valued member of a team instead of a churn-and-burn consulting house? Are you looking to join a mission driven company where your contribution will be immediately utilized in our highly adopted Salesforce instance? If so, read on and apply, we’d love to hear from you. 

About the Team: 
ChowNow is unique among tech startups in the restaurant space. We are on a mission to help local restaurants survive and thrive in these challenging times by powering branded online ordering for independent restaurants with a fairly priced subscription model; not a sky-high per order commission. 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. We pride ourselves on giving our teams plenty of opportunities to make their mark. Our mission became even more important in 2020 and we are expanding to scale our operations even further in 2021.
