An Insider's view of Chowly Inc.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the Chowly office is truly electric. To walk into an office full of smiling faces and laughter everyday makes me excited to come in every morning. I have never worked somewhere where every single team member is passionate about the product and the company.


Strategic Account Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Depending on the project, I find myself collaborating with implementation teams, enterprise account managers, or product development. We communicate through a number of different mediums including slack, email, and in person. Every project is different, and success strongly depends on cohesive and efficient teamwork.


Enterprise Account Executive

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I first started at Chowly 3.5 years ago , I was the employee number 12 and it's incredible how we have grown! I was brought on as a Configuration Specialist and due to dedicating myself to the Chowly brand and hard work, I started my own department: Human Resources! I love people, Chowly and problem solving and it was a perfect fit


Human Resources

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We strive to have an open door policy at Chowly. Any team member can schedule time with leadership to share ideas, innovations, or talk about a recent challenge or struggle. This accessibility allows us to change and grow organically which drives teamwork across all levels.



What does your typical day look like?

When I first started at Chowly, every single person on my team rallied around me, welcomed me, and made sure I was equipped with all the tools to succeed. It's so refreshing to work for a company that values my ideas. Every day I can expect humor, hard work, and a genuine sense of community. It really feels like a second home to me.
