Bready* to make a change?

Restaurants receive a significant portion of their revenue through credit card payment processing. Toast provides an integrated payment processing platform for our restaurants, which ensures a simple and consistent experience for restaurants. The vision of the Pricing Team in Fintech is to ensure that restaurants have access to fair pricing models, appropriate to the size and complexity of their business. Traditionally, we have offered a flat rate model, which is simple but not always desirable for the larger restaurants who want more flexibility and control. Today, our team is building out support for the popular interchange plus pricing model. Were looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our team and help evolve our pricing capabilities.

Our Tech Stack

Our products run on a stack that ranges from guest and restaurant-facing Android tablets to backend services in Java to internal, guest-facing and restaurant-facing web apps. Our backend services follow a microservice architecture written using Java 8 and DropWizard; we use AWS extensively, ranging from S3 to RDS to Lambda. We have our own platform for dealing with user management, service elevations and robust load balancing. We store data in a set of sharded Postgres databases and utilize Apache Spark for large scale data workloads including query and batch processing. The web frontend is built using React, Angular, and ES6. Our main point of sale application is an Android application written in Java and Kotlin. For communication between tablets and our cloud platform, we utilize RabbitMQ clusters as well as direct API communication to our HTTP backend.

"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.​"
