Our Team

We're Tovala, a food-tech company completely reinventing home cooking to save consumers time. Through an innovative combination of hardware, software, and food, we give our customers a way to enjoy really good, good-for-you meals without sacrificing time to do whatever matters to them.

Since 2015, we’ve grown from just a handful of people to a real, cross-functional team of chefs, engineers, designers, developers, ops experts, and more. We do good work together, and we’re proud of it. This is us—a bunch of hard-working, food-loving nerds.
