About Us:
Plate IQ is helping restaurants transform their operations with its modern tools and data. We help hundreds of small to medium sized restaurants from Michelin 3 stars and regional chains to mom and pop operations. We are probably the only thing common between Jamba Juice, the French Laundry and NYC Halal Carts. Some of the problems we are trying to solve now are "Why can't restaurants just search for the best priced chicken instead of calling up a dozen suppliers?", "Can there be a searchable archive of all the data restaurants generate?", "How can we perfectly digitize millions of invoices?"

The Role:
The Technical Project Manager will be responsible for making sure multiple initiatives for PlateIQ that involve acquiring customers or delivering new product features are coordinated and delivered in an efficient and timely manner. The role will involve coordination with the Product, Engineering and Account Managements teams within PlateIQ to effectively plan the work and remediate any dependencies, risks and issues.
