An Insider's view of McDonald's Technology

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The entrepreneurial spirit at McDonald’s is noticeable at all levels. People inspire; people are nimble; people are team-driven; people are focused on evolving and improving. When you walk around the space, you can feel the energy that comes from collaboration and problem-solving. I am motivated to push myself every day.

Jen

Product Manager, Global Mobile App

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are providing insights and real time event data for decision making and marketing activation at a scale very few other companies can compare to. We are moving from a 1 to many CRM strategy to a 1 to 1 contextual and personalized experience for our customers and are watching our data drive the direction of feature development within McDonald’s.

What does career growth look like on your team?

Working at a company of this Global scale has stretched my skills like never before. The sheer number and variety of customers using the product I work on every day is both challenging and exhilarating; developing my skillset in a way that would be hard to match elsewhere

Jade

Sr. Product Manager, Kiosk

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

McDonald’s has a few consistent challenges that we’re always solving for - scale and flexibility are critical. Every piece of technology that we build has to be scalable to 30,000+ restaurants! The second challenge is flexibility –we need to provide a consistent and reliable experience, and every restaurant is unique!
