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.
