Our Tech Stack
Toast’s products run on a stack that ranges from guest and restaurant-facing Android tablets to backend services in Java & Kotlin to internal, guest-facing and restaurant-facing web apps. Our backend services follow a microservice architecture written using Java and DropWizard, with services communicating in event-driven fashion using Apache Pulsar. We use Apache Camel for implementing Enterprise Integration Pattern. We use AWS extensively, ranging from S3 to DynamoDb to Lambda. We have our own platform for dealing with user management, service elevations and robust load balancing. Toast stores data in a set of sharded Postgres databases & DynamoDb, and utilizes Apache Spark for large scale data workloads including query and batch processing. The front-end is built primarily using React and ES6. The main Toast POS application is an Android application written in Java and Kotlin. For data between tablets and our cloud platform we operate RabbitMQ clusters as well as direct tablet communication to the back end. We use Datadog for system and application metric and monitoring. We use Splunk for log aggregation.
