Who are we?

Hi, we’re Chewse! Hundreds of offices work with us to run their employee meal programs. We see food as a powerful medium to share our love and community with fellow businesses everywhere.
We’re a unique little team — company happy hour every Thursday, gratitude circle every Friday, and team lunches together all the freaking time — working hard together to build a love company.
We’re based in San Francisco’s beautiful SoMa neighborhood, and we’re over 50 people.

What’s the job, really?
Chewse feeds thousands of people every day. This role serves at the heart of the diner experience — ensuring menus are crafted thoughtfully to showcase our Restaurant Partners’ delicious food while meeting each unique customers’ needs.

You’re here to say “probably not.” With your food knowledge and flavor intuition, you’ll call the shots on what items we order for our customers. You’ll work across teams to build a Menu Database that will act as a guidebook for Meal Planners to follow in your footsteps of great taste!
  • Quality Assurance: As you interact with our Product and customers submit feedback on meals you planned, you’ll look for areas of improvement with our menus and work with the Restaurant Partnerships Team to take action.
