    About Us


    Since Nissin’s entry into the US in the 1970’s, our flagship brands, Cup Noodles and Top Ramen have held a fond place in US pop culture even before ramen became the trendy dish it is today.  It started in post-World War II Japan amidst dire food shortages and inspired our founder, Momofuku Ando, to invent instant ramen in 1958.  In order to continue this legacy of innovation, we’re looking for noodle lovers who have a passion to disregard the status quo, seek continuous growth and love being part of something special.


    • We want to cultivate a company culture that keeps people excited about our mission and thoroughly engaged.
    • Place the right people in the right positions and provide the resources to help them in their current positions while setting them up for success to grow into future roles.
    • Offer competitive pay and benefits since we want everyone to work to live (and not the other way around).We invite you to join in our mission to evolve how people think about instant ramen, expand its appeal and be a part of this $4 billion global company that was built from a simple block of noodles.
