R&D

At all levels in the R&D organization you will have the opportunity to shape your role and gain critical experiences that will support your career development.  At Pepsi Lipton Global R&D we manage the global technical innovation pipeline, spanning breakthrough projects as well as renovation across product, packaging and process development. Working in the R&D team is a unique opportunity to get exposure to all aspects of the R&D continuum in a highly dynamic environment, from discovering and evaluating new technologies, to designing winning products and packaging for more than 70 countries, deploying our products to fast growing markets around the world. You will also gain exposure and understanding of global consumer insights and culture.

We have three R&D hubs in Colworth (UK), Valhalla (USA) and Shanghai (China), each acting as both a regional innovation centre and part of the Global R&D team, with responsibility for one or several Global Big Bets. The team influence and support strategic business projects and decisions across several areas:
  • Global brand roadmaps and product & pack innovation pipeline for the next 3-5 years
  • Regional innovation and renovation programmes to ensure local responsiveness and competitiveness
  • Technology deployment for expansion into new markets

You will apply breakthrough technologies from both parent companies to create winning products while working on fast paced projects that aim to hit the marketplace with a short turnaround time. Working in Pepsi Lipton R&D you will feel the pride of having launched winning products that drive our growth.
