Customer Support Representative

| Playa Vista
Do you have a passion for building meaningful relationships with your clients? Do you aspire to be a part of a team that leaves it all on the field in the name of customer service? If so, this may be your next opportunity! We’re looking for a highly-motivated Customer Support Representative who is relentless in helping customers as quickly and efficiently as possible.
About the Team:
At ChowNow, we are passionate about serving the needs of over 8,000 restaurants to help them compete in an increasingly technical world. Our team works on products focused on restaurant clients and their diners (who transact over $1,000,000 daily on the ChowNow platform).
We believe positive relationships make our team able to do more with less. You will collaborate, learn, teach, and experiment with new approaches to getting big things done together.

Our team is located in the Playa Vista neighborhood and tech hub of Los Angeles — 5 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:
As a Customer Support Rep, you are our front-line defense at helping our restaurants and diners have a positive experience with ChowNow via the phone, email, and our online chat feature. Specifically, you are responsible for processing 1,000 tickets per month and maintaining a case score of 3.5+.

  • Assist in training new CSRs through shadowing sessions and coaching on best practices.

You Should Apply If...

  • You have a solid foundation in customer service including written and verbal communication with customers. Past experience in technical customer service (email, phone, chat or live) is definitely a plus.
  • You are smart, independent, self-motivated, empathetic, passionate about supporting our customers, and a team player even in stressful situations.
  • You’re incredibly organized, detail-oriented, and are capable of handling multiple responsibilities at the same time, specifically a high-volume of inbound phone calls.
  • You have a mindset for using technology and can quickly learn how to use new tools.
  • You’re available to begin a shift as early as 6:00am and end as late as 9:00pm.

Insider's spotlight

What are some social events your company does?

I originally started the DineNow program for selfish purposes... I just wanted to eat good food and spend time with my co-workers outside of the office because they were so awesome! It ended up blossoming into a great event we do monthly where we gather together at a delicious local spot. It's a great bonding experience.

Director of Customer Support

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Starting as a graphic design intern and now working as a front-end developer I can definitely attest to ChowNow being an amazing place to grow your career. I've been here a little more than 5 years, and am still growing constantly both personally and professionally.
