Staff Software Engineer, Orders Platform
Orders Platform - Staff Software Engineer (SE4) Backend Lending
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.
Restaurant orders are at the center of the restaurant operations. As orders are prepared and served or delivered, many systems have to work together seamlessly so the restaurant can provide great service to their guests. What’s the correct price of the order after applying taxes and discounts? How many orders can the kitchen prepare during rush to keep up with demand? When should a guest or a delivery driver arrive to pick up their food? How will the order be categorized and tracked to create actionable reporting and insights? Toast’s key role in the center of these workflows gives us the operational data and the leverage to introduce products that improve both the guest experience and the restaurant’s bottom line.
Examples of projects that the team works on:
- Providing the infrastructure to make sure orders sync across all devices within the restaurant and to the Toast backend systems (gRPC, Pulsar, RMQ, Java, Kotlin, DynamoDB, Android, Java/Kotlin)
- Provide tax, pricing, and discount solutions that can be easily customized to help our customers maximize their restaurant profits / margins
