Senior Android Software Engineer, Off Premise Dining

Boston, MA, US

Job Description / Skills Required

Toast is driven by building the restaurant platform that helps restaurants adapt, take control, and get back to what they do best: building the businesses they love.

Now, more than ever, the Toast team is committed to our customers. We’re taking steps to help restaurants navigate these unprecedented times with technology, resources, and community. Our focus is on building the restaurant platform that helps restaurants adapt, take control, and get back to what they do best: building the businesses they love. And because our technology is purpose-built for restaurants, by restaurant people, restaurants can trust that we’ll deliver on their needs for today while investing in experiences that will power their restaurant of the future. 

The Toast Point of Sale (POS) app is the central pillar of Toast’s restaurant products. Every day, many thousands of servers, hosts, bartenders, and chefs use Toast’s POS to serve millions of guests! Our team strives to make their experience as smooth and efficient. When we do our job well, the restaurant staff can focus on doing what they love: providing great food and service.  

The POS app is built on Android, using Kotlin and Java, and an AWS platform that packages up all of the complexity of restaurant operations into a simple UI that anyone in the restaurant can use. To configure POS features, users login to our React web UIs.

Our team tackles a mix of technical, product, and UX challenges around third-party ordering (e.g. Doordash) and online ordering features with in-restaurant operations, such as displaying third-party orders to staff, messaging guests about their orders, and communicating order data with internal and external services. While our team focuses on the POS, we also work on backend services, which are also a mix of Kotlin and Java, with React frontends.
