Toasts Core Product Team is looking for a Product Manager to drive forward a technical and user-experience driven roadmap for our Data Publishing system. Publishing is mission critical for every Toast restaurant each and every day.

"I looked at a lot of start-ups during my last job search and Toast was by far the most exciting. It was instantly obvious to me how the product is useful to people and why someone might want to buy it. The proof of that has been in the way we have grown and the excitement we have already generated. However, what really excites me about the company is that I feel like we are just scratching the surface in terms of what we can accomplish. There are SO many untapped opportunities around our product and as we continue to grow, I am excited about being able to explore them more.​"
