About Tock

Tock is reimagining how chefs, restaurants, and wineries across the world run their businesses and manage reservations.

Nick Kokonas and Chef Grant Achatz opened Alinea to international fanfare in 2005 - now a perennial Michelin three star and widely considered one of the best restaurants in the world. For years they were spending $140,000 a year on staff dedicated to managing reservations and losing an average of $260,000 a year on cancellations. Knowing there had to be a solution, Nick started work on a new reservation system. The homemade platform was a success, nearly eliminating no-shows and dramatically improving the guest experience. Soon after, Nick founded Tock with Brian Fitzpatrick, founder of Google's Chicago engineering office, to turn this simple idea into a robust platform to change the way people dine.

Tock’s explosive growth (as of April 2019):

  • Reached a global customer base of over 20 countries operating in 100+ cities
  • Has now processed over $480 million in prepaid reservations
  • Announced an exclusive partnership and integration with Chase Pay & Ultimate Rewards
  • Announced an exclusive partnership and integration with WineDirect
  • Won Chicago Tribune's "Game Changer" Award for industry innovation
  • Featured in: New York Times, Bloomberg, GQ, Vice, Wired, Food & Wine, Eater, Skift Table, Chicago Tribune, Crain's Chicago Business, New York Post, and more

About the position

We’re looking for a Senior UI Developer to join our design team and help bring our ideas, prototypes, and Figma designs to life. You’d partner with your product designer teammates to build fast, easy, and beautiful tools for our restaurant customers, explore how animations, interactions, and transitions might make these tools more engaging and delightful, and build extensible components, robust design systems, and thoughtful frontend standards for the entire product team to use.

People who do well on this team are self-motivated with a passion for the problems we’re out to solve and how technology can help. We look for individuals with a deep knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and those who are ready to champion our web-based and mobile-first philosophy.

About the role

  • You’ll be part of the design team, working closely with our product designers, but you’ll also work directly with our larger product team, including product managers and software engineers.
  • You’ll work mostly on our customer-facing Dashboard. Thousands of hosts, reservationists, general managers, and owners use Tock’s Dashboard every day to manage their reservations, tables, guests, and finances.
  • You’ll collaborate with our design team using Figma–the better version of Sketch!
  • You’ll write and push production-ready HTML, CSS, and JS within our React framework.
  • You’ll serve as an advocate for frontend best practices.
  • You’ll rely on quantitative and qualitative methods to guide your decisions.

About you

  • You’re a developer or frontend designer with an extensive knowledge of HTML and CSS and are comfortable working within our React + Typescript framework.
  • You’re highly organized and able to build and maintain UI focused React components from scratch.
  • You strive for pixel perfection and have high standards for how implemented designs look and function, but you strive to ship quickly and iterate frequently based on feedback.
  • You are extremely proficient with CSS and/or React based animations and transitions.
  • You have an appreciation for systems-thinking and are excited to create reusable code and consistent user experiences.
  • You have strong leadership skills to foster a healthy relationship between design and engineering.

What we offer

  • Competitive salary
  • Full benefits (medical, dental, vision), 401k
  • Paid time off
  • Paid parental leave
  • Free daily lunch
  • Nitro coffee on tap

An Insider's view of Tock

What’s the vibe like in the office?

What I love most about working at Tock is the support I get from my immediate team. We created a culture where we can work off of each other's strengths and come up with a plan on how to fix and learn from each other's mistakes. The cold brew on tap isn't bad either.

Dantee

Hospitality Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Every day in sales here is different than the last, and we have the flexibility to create our own schedules. Some are spent researching and reaching perfect matches for Tock, some are spent meeting with some of the world's best chefs in the coolest cities, and some are spent rolling up our sleeves and ensuring successful onboarding for our clients.

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful member of our team needs to be determined, passionate about our product and the success of our partners, persistent and flexible in trying new ways to reach potential new partners, and organized to easily manage your deals and leads. An optimistic and friendly attitude also goes a long way!

Maggie

Territory Account Executive

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

For those that love food and eating out, what if I asked you, where should I go to dinner. What would you say? Tough question, right? The restaurant scene in Chicago and across the entire world is more crowded now than ever before. So at Tock we’re helping restaurants compete and succeed with tools to make them better businesses.

Dan

Director of Design

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I've never worked with a more collaborative, talented, and hard-working group of people, across all of our teams. Everyone is willing to learn and adapt as the company grows and scales. Not only do all departments have full visibility into what the others are doing, but we actively seek out ways to help and improve lines of communication.
