About Us

The Yum! Brands story is simple. We have the three distinctive, relevant and easy global brands – KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell -- born from the hopes and dreams, ambitions and grit of passionate entrepreneurs. And we want more of this to create our future!

As the world’s largest restaurant company we have a clear and compelling mission: to build the world’s most love, trusted and fastest-growing restaurant brands. The key and not-so-secret ingredient in our recipe for growth is our unrivaled talent and culture, which fuels our results.

We’re looking for talented, motivated, visionary and team-oriented leaders to join us as we elevate and personalize the customer experience across our 48,000 restaurants, operating in 145 countries and territories around the world!

We put pizza, chicken and tacos in the hands of customers through customized ordering, unique delivery approaches, app experiences, and click and collect services and consumer data analytics creating unique customer dining experiences – and we are only getting started.

Employees may work for a single brand and potentially grow to support all company-owned brands depending on their role. Regardless of where they work, as a company opening an average of 8 restaurants a day worldwide, the growth opportunities are endless. Taco Bell has been named of the 10 Most Innovative Companies in the World by Fast Company; Pizza Hut delivers more pizzas than any other pizza company in the world and KFC’s still use its 75-year-old finger lickin’ good recipe including secret herbs and spices to hand-bread its chicken every day.

Yum! and its brands have offices in Chicago, IL, Louisville KY, Irvine, CA, Plano, TX and other markets around the world. We don’t just say we are a great place to work – our commitments to the world and our employees show it. Yum! has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index and ranked among the top 100 Best Corporate Citizens by Corporate Responsibility Magazine in addition to being named to the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index. Our employees work in an environment where the value of “believe in all people” is lived every day, enjoying benefits including but not limited to: 4 weeks’ vacation PLUS holidays, sick leave and 2 paid days to volunteer at the cause of their choice and a dollar-for-dollar matching gift program; generous parental leave; competitive benefits including medical, dental, vision and life insurance as well as a 6% 401k match – all encompassed in Yum!’s world-famous recognition culture.

An Insider's view of Yum! Brands

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Everyone on the team takes work-life balance very seriously. We plan our work as much as possible so that things don’t creep up on us and don’t tolerate working excessive hours for very long. We view it as a sign of a broken process that we need to fix. We all prefer to not have to take our work home with us (if we don’t want to).

Gregori

Sr. Solutions Architect

What projects are you most excited about?

Right now, we have the possibility of our work being rolled out almost anywhere in the world, in almost any size of market. When people think about Yum restaurants, they don’t immediately assume there’s a lot of variety there, but when you look worldwide, there’s a huge range of menus, services provided and environments.

Rich

Sr. Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

What makes someone successful on the team is a combination of the individual contributions they make, in addition to what they bring to the group. We foster a collaborative environment, where team members can have an impact no matter their role.

Melissa

Software Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We currently have sizable initiatives to build out a new platform that not only will shape our company's future, but everyone will also benefit the next time they order from one of our restaurants.

Bill

Senior Manager, eCommerce

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I've been on both sides of the business and have developed a strong respect for the maker vs manager schedule. I understand that to be most effective, engineers need large chunks of uninterrupted time. I try to only schedule team meetings before or after lunch as to not break up the day, and I keep my schedule open for team members to block off.

Jeremiah

Manager, Software Engineering
