Biography

Jeff Freburg

Head of Employee Experience

Jeff makes sure everyone at Playground is well cared for, overseeing the kitchen and food program, and helping to run events, design the lounge and manage the fitness program.


A chef by training, Jeff first learned to cook by watching Jacques Pepin on TV. Then he cooked for Pepin and Julia Child at the California Culinary Academy.

His professional career has taken him around the states and earned him lots of interesting stories about celebrities and statesmen (so get him talking at a party sometime). But his passion includes not only food, but design as well. Jeff designed Google’s cafes and built the food program at Square from the ground up. Now he leads the charge in creating a great work environment at Playground.

“I love working with smart, talented people who have great taste,” he says, which makes him the perfect match for Playground and our companies.
