An Insider's view of Toast

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Toast is a pretty special place to work. I really enjoy the collaborative and supportive work culture. Toast goes out of its way to take care of employees through additional days off to flexible hours to peer groups and training.

Brad

Senior Engineering Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Being a part of the R&D team, I collaborate closely with cross-functional partners like Product, Design, Quality and Documentation to ensure alignment across the team and ultimately execution. Since joining Toast, I have been stretched both technically and non-technically, grown my career and become a stronger engineer and a more effective leader.

Eden

Manager, Software Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I began as an Implementation Engineer, moved into instructional design, and now I am in my dream role as a Product Manager. This is afforded because Toast fosters a culture where experts in their domains are eager to give you a masterclass in what they do – you only need to ask and be willing to learn. This is the best perk when working at Toast.

Sean Park

Product Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

I love our bi-annual company-wide Hackathons! The mission is to provide all Toasters with the opportunity to innovate on Toast’s products, processes, & culture while fostering new connections between teams and people. I absolutely love seeing Toasters come together; the energy, enthusiasm, & passion for making Toast better is incredibly inspiring!

Jane

Senior Director of Product Management

How does the company support your career growth?

When Toast hires you, they immediately invest in you and give you every bit of support to ensure you are not only successful but in the best position for growth. Aside from the great support resources, Toast has a team of some of the smartest people in tech that I've been able to learn from.
