Our Values and Culture
Our Web Chefs® bring more than their professional skills to the kitchen and we encourage everyone to help guide the direction of our company. We all have a strong voice in what we do and how we do it. Collectively, our values—The Way of the Web Chef™—guide how we interact with each other, our colleagues, and our clients. Four Kitchens is not just a company, it’s a closely knit team. We believe in the power of individuals coming together to do something bigger than they could have done alone.
We believe good talent is where you find it and, as a distributed team, we’re excited to be pioneers in what we believe is the future of work-culture. Even though we have no physical office, we strive to maintain a collaborative community using tools like Slack and Zoom. Our goal is for team members to feel like they are working together in the same room, even if they’re thousands of miles apart.
