Job Description / Skills Required

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 POS app is the central pillar of Toast’s restaurant products. Every day, hundreds of thousands of servers, hosts, bartenders, and chefs use Toast’s POS to serve millions of guests! Our POS product is constantly evolving to better serve our restaurants, and our POS Productivity team builds the platform that makes this possible.


The core mission of the POS Productivity team is to make it as easy as possible for our Android engineers to develop new features and deliver them to our restaurants with high confidence and high quality. Every day, the team makes a positive impact on Toast’s engineers, Toast’s customer-facing teams, and our customers directly. 


The POS Productivity team has a full-stack skillset, and their projects cover a broad set of technologies including Android app development, Java and Kotlin Cloud services in AWS, React UIs, and more. The team is an excellent fit for Android engineers branching into full stack development, and for experienced full-stack engineers interested in learning more about Android.  


The team’s current primary project is designing a mobile app release platform that delivers a great experience for our customers, allows Toast to manage a variety of concurrent releases across multiple projects, and surfaces quality feedback to engineers as quickly as possible.
