We're huge fans of Seattle but we know it might not be the center of your universe. We want to work with the best and brightest wherever they live. That's why you don't have to live in Seattle to work at Chef. We have employees who live and work all around the United States. We've worked hard to create a remote-friendly culture and believe you can have a big impact no matter where you live.

    Work-life "mix" is great. Ability to work from home or remote makes having a flexible schedule easy.

    Benefits package at Chef is great. Remote culture makes it easy to WFH on days when life gets in the way.

    Having unlimited PTO and a flexible schedule makes me want to put all of my effort into what I do for this company. Not feeling the need to "take advantage" of whatever loop holes I can find to ensure I have a work/life balance makes me a happier and more engaged employee.

    Benefits are good for a company this size, however costs for employee tend to go up a small percentage each year.

    Incredible coverage on the ppo plan, 12 chiropractic + 24 acupuncture/PT/massage. Low $200 deductible. Very nice benefits overall, "unlimited" PTO.

    They don't encourage WFH if you are part of operations and not really unlimited PTO if you can't use it

    12 weeks paid parental leave. In an industry that often pushes benefits like beer fridges and ping pong tables (though Chef has those as well) this benefit shows how deeply they are committed not only to their employees but their employees' families and life outside of work. Additionally, the 12 weeks does not need to be taken consecutively, it is common for employees to take 2-3 weeks of parental leave, come back to work for a week, then take an additional chunk of the leave.
