Seamless restaurant operations. We are redefining how restaurants operate and buy products at wholesale with intuitive tools and deep data analytics.
Design at Plate IQ: We believe there are too many barriers to running a successful restaurant. While there are numerous products trying to help restaurants deal with their customers, very few products, if any, are trying to think about the restaurant as a customer.
Plate IQ’s mission is to help restaurants optimize their spend. We’re designing products to not only help our customers streamline their processes, but to change how the food industry interacts with each other as a whole. That’s where you come in: we’re looking for a strong designer who can take their passion for design and apply it skillfully to improve how we build products. This role would touch most projects at Plate IQ -- from our brand and websites to events, web and mobile products, and even printed publications. We think of design at Plate IQ as a competitive advantage!
