Nodejs Engineer

Digital Technology @ KFC ...

At KFC, our platform has constantly evolved to make it as easy as possible to order our great chicken. We brought our development in-house four years ago which has helped to drive collaboration and innovation. Here at KFC, we empower people to be their best selves, make a difference and have fun.

Think you can only buy our chicken in-store at our restaurants?! Think again! We've created a fast, simple omnichannel experience to help people order and get their food in the way that is most convenient to them, whether that be through our app to collect service via the front counter or drive-thru, in-store kiosk integrations, or fully integrated aggregator delivery (Deliveroo, JustEat, UberEats etc) and there's more to come.

We use React on our front-end and Node.js on our back-end, within a Serverless environment (AWS), so experience with JavaScript is ideal, but we're happy to support your learning if you don't have it. You can read more about our tech stack here...

About the role...

As a Nodejs Engineer you'll be working across teams to support the development of the Digital products for web and app as well as the integrations to the many external services. Your focus will be on creating high quality, structured, reusable and annotated code.
