Chef Software, a Seattle based software company, and leader in Continuous Automation software, is to create 55 new jobs with a new software development centre in Belfast. Chef is one of the founders of the DevOps (Development and Operations) movement, and has over 1,000 customers spread across many industries such as Facebook, Nordstrom, Target, IBM and SAP. Its solutions help businesses deliver their vision of digital transformation, providing the practices and platform to deliver software at speed.

Gary Hanley, Invest Northern Ireland US Senior VP for North America, said: “The new software development centre in Belfast will help Chef grow its business in EMEA and Asia PAC and will provide support to those customers. As well as creating 55 new jobs and generating over £2.3million in salaries into the economy each year, this centre will also add to the skills base in Northern Ireland and enhance the region’s technology capability.

He added: “The fast paced nature of DevOps will mean that those working for the company will have the opportunity to help develop new innovation software solutions, get exposure to new technology and develop new skills.”

The company plans to create the new jobs by 2020. Invest NI has offered £357,500 towards the creation of the new jobs.

Barry Crist, Chef CEO, said: “Digital transformation is a highly valuable exercise for our customers and it’s crucial that we invest in the products and solutions they need to be successful. Our software helps developers and operators ship build, deploy, and manage software at speed, and with quality through compliance with regulatory standards such as GDPR.

“The practical support from Invest NI – from introducing us to local talent, helping us identify office space and integrating us into the local technology ecosystem – has meant we have been able to get our new Development Centre up and running quickly. The centre in Belfast will enable us to tap into the strong software development and DevOps skills here and provide world-class solutions for our customers.”
