An Insider's view of BentoBox

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

BentoBox has been my family for the last few years. I've been able to grow professionally as well as personally with my time at BentoBox -- forever grateful for that perfect work-life balance.


Senior Product Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We're literally helping restaurants, bars, cafés, coffee shops, restaurant groups, catering companies, food trucks, lobster shacks and fast casual spots all succeed in their mission of hospitality. That, and helping them drive revenue to help their bottom line.


People Partner, GTM

What makes someone successful on your team?

The past four (going on five!) years at BentoBox have shown me what it means to be part of a team that rallies around each other, unified to achieve a collective goal. One team, one dream – getting closer and closer to a full reality with each passing day – to be the technology that elevates every interaction between restaurants and their guests.


Manager, Onboarding

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to be the technology that elevates every interaction between the restaurant and its guests.



How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've always been passionate about food and restaurants, and after going to culinary school and working back of the house, I wanted to find a different path within the industry. Joining BentoBox allowed me to learn from some incredibly talented colleagues and mentors to grow my career, supporting hospitality in a new way
