Senior Software Engineer (Data Platform)

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.

Are you interested in building tools on top of data that help customers improve their businesses? Do you believe that extraordinary products differentiate themselves by moving beyond a simple “report” but providing a more data-rich experience? If so, we'd like you to join the Data Platform team.

The Data Platform group builds and manages key parts of Toast’s infrastructure. Today we support tens of thousands of restaurants who see the quality of timely and insightful data as critical to their success. We also work closely with other internal teams to enable them to build services and products that leverage the massive amounts of data we’ve collected. By this point next year, we are expecting to have doubled our data and traffic volume. The Data Platform team is building the massively-scalable Spark, Avro and Parquet based streaming data plane built on AWS that will meet this goal.

  • Use the data infrastructure to build and deliver meaningful data to our customers
  • Expand and improve the data model used across the company with an eye toward long term scalability
  • Work closely with a small group of engineers across a broad spectrum of projects.

Do you have the right ingredients?

  • Experience working within the data analysis ecosystem on top of platforms such as Hadoop, Spark, or Snowflake.
  • Familiarity with microservice based architecture operating at scale, preferably in a cloud environment such as AWS.
  • Knowledge of command line tools and the ability to jump in and assist with ops as necessary to keep the pipeline moving. 

Special Sauce:

  • Experience with Java, Groovy, Kotlin or JVM-based language is a plus.
