Quick Pitch

Chef Software helps companies become fast, efficient, and secure software-driven organizations. Today, every organization delivers value through applications, such as airport kiosks, smartphone apps, or inventory systems.

Chef provides automation capabilities to help organizations manage the complexity lurking below these apps, making it easy to deliver and maintain infrastructure and applications that are secure and compliant. We are helping industry leaders like Walmart, Barclays, and Ford become “coded enterprises”.

Open at our core

Community is the foundation of Chef. We believe that the best way to build software is in close collaboration with the people who use it, and the best way to use software is alongside those who build it. Whether you build or use Chef software, you’re a part of cultivating that community and helping it thrive!


We celebrate and support our differences

We know employing a team rich in diverse thoughts, experiences, and opinions allows our employees, our products and our community to flourish. Chef is honored to be an equal opportunity workplace. We are dedicated to equal employment opportunities regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation or Veteran status. We foster a welcoming environment.



We are proud of the company and the culture we are building. We continue to strive for excellence in DevOps and our community.
