Finance Manager



Accounting & Finance
Toronto, ON, Canada
Posted on Tuesday, May 14, 2024

was founded with the belief that restaurant operators and service providers should have a much better way to operate their businesses. As a first step towards our mission, we have built a SaaS-enabled marketplace that helps fast-growing restaurants manage their 🛠 repairs and maintenance, empowering them to focus on their customers.

Repair and maintenance is the heartbeat of any restaurant's operations, yet the existing management methods are complex, expensive, and time-consuming. With ResQ, restaurants can simply get connected to qualified service providers, submit jobs, track progress, and pay, all in one place.

We are trusted by the world's leading restaurant brands and are venture-backed by top-tier global VCs - and we are just getting 🚀 started!
