Home Chef

The Home Chef team is a unique mix of chefs, creators, entrepreneurs, and trailblazers. By combining our diverse backgrounds, distinct talents, and consistent willingness to support one another, we’re building new ways to navigate the booming meal kit industry. 

Our team runs on a spirit of autonomy, trust, and inclusion that allows for quick decisions and inventive thinking.  Our organic growth is supported by our employee’s constant eagerness to suggest and try new things. It’s the same energy, combined with our customer-first mentality, that landed us Built in Chicago’s Startup of the Year Moxie award.

We’re growing quickly, across all departments, locations, and levels. Our extraordinary management team is simultaneously humble and inspiring, taking cues from our CEO who recently was honored as EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year.  

We encourage our employees to go as far as their ambitions take them while we equally strive to create a fun work environment. We know that fun at work doesn’t always mean a ping pong table - it can mean collaboration, communication, and creating new ideas and projects with your colleagues. If you’re ready to be part of the action, we’re ready to connect with you.  There are no limits to where we can go together.
