An Insider's view of Tock

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The best way I can describe it is “chill focus”. It’s much different than the kitchens I came up in. The best part about working here is the people. No one is here simply for a paycheck, but to be a part of something bigger. Everyone helps move the company forward while still being a great person.

The 8 foot dinosaur watching over us helps too.


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.


Sales Development Executive

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!


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.


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.
