Build the Future of Robotics

Our mission is to accelerate the advent of intelligent machines which empower humans to do what humans do best. And yet, nothing about what we're doing is easy. Some would call it irrationally hard. Still, ask yourself: what idea will be as impactful as the invention of the computer or the internet in the short run? The obvious answer is: AI embodied with a robot. At Chef, we've chosen a technically constrained problem in an almost unlimited market and our goal is to be the first company to scale intelligent robotics around the world. Once we succeed, Chef will change how we eat food and the number of robots in the world forever. If solving really hard problems alongside some of the most ambitious people in the world seems fun, we'd love to chat!

Our current team comprises of all Senior / Staff Engineers, Tech Leads, and Engineering Managers ex Cruise, Google AI, Nuro, Verb Surgical, Saildrone, Tesla, Google Cloud Platform, Zoox, Embark Trucks, Amazon Robotics,  Think Surgical, Facebook, Built Robotics.

Our Principles

These are the principles we come back to every single day. When we don't know how to make a decision, we always come back to principles.

Read all our Principles
Customer and user obsession

We’re here to serve our customers and users. Go backwards from the customers and obsess after giving them the best experience possible.

Move with extreme velocity and focus

Velocity matters. We’re serving customers where a little downtime can cost millions. Ship fast and be laser focused on what matters. Work smart and hard.

Hire the very best people

If enough smart people are in a room together, we'll figure it out. Hire slow rather than to "fill a role."

Meet the Team

Chef has a team of world-class engineers, operators, and leaders. We value a team with a diverse background and set of experiences. Here are a few folks on our team!


I love our team! Everyone is smart, ambitious, hardworking, and determined to make our mission a success. At the same time, the team is also kind and supportive. My teammates all show up for one another personally and professionally.


Something I love about Chef is getting to work closely with customers to hear, understand, and improve based on their feedback.


My favorite aspect about Chef is our culture of transparency and openness. I feel supported to do what I love. Over my 2.5 years here, I’m pleasantly surprised that Chef has not only helped me grow as an engineer & a leader, but also become a happier & more mature person in general.


I love our interdisciplinary team of engineers, operations and product professionals is world class. Everyday I’m honored to be in the room!
