Why we build

Local business owners make our communities great. They risk everything – years of their lives, their families, their savings – to pursue their dreams.

They’re the heart of our economy, creating the majority of new jobs. They also represent hope for the American dream in our communities. They remind us that it’s possible to rise from being an entry-level worker to becoming a business owner one day, as 70% of restaurant owners do.

But they’re going to go extinct if something doesn’t change. Because corporations are destroying them. Large tech corporations like Yelp and GrubHub are stealing their customer relationships and destroying their profits with predatory practices.

Large restaurant corporations like Burger King are also decimating mom-and-pop business owners. They can afford to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on the latest marketing and technology, which gives them massive unfair advantages.

We’re building the platform that levels the playing field. We give the tech superpowers of Domino’s Pizza to the local pizzeria, so that they can fight back against the large corporations—and ultimately thrive.

Backed by some of the best in the business

Investors in Owner include the founders of 17 billion-dollar tech companies and 3 billion-dollar funds.

Our story

Watch this video to see why this is personal to our co-founders, and why our vision extends beyond helping the 500,000 American independent restaurants.

Watch Our Story Video

Our values

We are: mission-driven, driven, optimistic, kind, curious, dedicated, resourceful.

View open roles
Focus on customer success

We embrace the truth that customer success is our success, and prioritize that above all else. It’s the first thing we think about in all that we do.

We treat customer relationships like we expect them to last decades, always optimizing for the long term. We align our incentives with our customers.

We are generous with our time to go above and beyond for our customers, and aim to deliver the best experiences they’ve ever had with any company.

Live the Owner mindset

Every person on our team is an owner in our business. Our goal is to inspire our teams rather than to manage them.

We trust people on our team to do what they think is best for Owner, giving them freedom and information in support of their decisions. When we see problems, small or large, we never think “that’s not my job”.

Instead, we have a sense of responsibility and ownership that pushes us to always go above and beyond to make our business better. It’s not enough just to execute tasks in the same way every day. Everyone on the team is responsible for consistently improving systems and improving the company by 1% every day.

Bring good energy

We’re optimistic about the future and grateful about where we are, and our high-energy culture spills into the world around us.

We celebrate our wins and the wins of our customers.

The good vibes brighten every interaction we have with our teammates, customers and partners. We recognize that startups are too hard to dwell on the negatives, and that part of the challenge is to keep a positive view of the future even while solving the most trying problems.

Scale yourself with the company

The first thing that we look for in new teammates is a high rate of learning, because startups change so quickly that learning quickly is necessary for thriving in them. We believe that reading is a superpower because it allows us to learn from experts.

We can compress experts’ years of learning into hours by studying books, courses, and interviews. We constantly seek out insights from people who are better than we are.

Our company is scaling fast, and we must scale our knowledge with it to keep pace.

Move fast like our success depends on it

We live or die by how fast we get things done. Speed is the most important advantage that startups have.

We set aggressive timelines that the world tells us are impossible. We don’t depend on external folks for our core timelines — whether they are vendors, restaurant partners, or even other teams. We cannot and will not move at someone else’s pace.

We set our own timelines and find a way to make them happen. When setting timelines, we default to thinking in hours and days — not weeks and months.

Our perks

Work from anywhere

Our flexible policy lets you work from wherever you want — whether that’s our office, your house, or the beach.

Healthcare coverage

We offer comprehensive health, dental and vision plans, plus a monthly fitness stipend to use how you choose.

Benefits on the go

From meditation classes to a home office stipend, we set you up for success where you are and where you’re going.

Equity in Owner

We believe in owning what you do, so all full-time employees receive pre-IPO equity in Owner.

Unlimited PTO

Your schedule, your choice. We give our team members full empowerment to choose the time they want to work, and don’t micro-manage
working hours.

Team retreats

We love building real friendships with everyone that we work with, so we do several retreats per year in fun destinations – to deepen our friendships, celebrate our wins, and plan our future.
