Senior Software Engineer, Data Platform

| Greater Boston Area

Today we support tens of thousands of restaurants who see the quality of timely and insightful data as critical to their success. 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.

Are you dedicated to the craft of raising the right kind of information, at the right time, in the right context? Do you believe that extraordinary products differentiate themselves by moving beyond a simple "report" into a data rich experience? If so, we'd like you to join us.

As a Senior Software Engineer on the Data Platform team you will be:

  • Building and maintaining the infrastructure of our high performance, highly reliable data analytics platform
  • Polishing and improving the data model used across the company with an eye toward long term scalability
  • Improving, augmenting and overhauling our existing reporting system to raise insights for our customers that couldn’t be accomplished without the power of the new platform
  • Working individually or sometimes as the technical leader of a small group of engineers across a broad spectrum of projects
  • Collaborating with many of the most critical aspects of the business, ranging from the CTO all the way to Customer Success and Marketing

Some projects we’ve been working on recently include:

  • Implementing a Kafka streaming framework that supports a changing data landscape as the organization grows
  • Expanding functionality within a cluster of Spark-based microservice backends that quickly serve sub-second requests across years of financial data
  • Prototyping a GraphQL based Backend-for-the-Frontend that ensures our data visualizations remain performant as the complexity of the data grows

Do you have the right ingredients?

  • 5+ years of experience in Java, Groovy, Kotlin or another JVM based language with object-oriented components
  • Some experience working within the data analysis ecosystem on top of platforms such as Hadoop, Spark, or Snowflake. Experience developing and operating production hardened ETL pipelines with tools such as Airflow is a huge plus!
  • Not afraid of the command line and willing to jump in and assist with ops as necessary to keep the pipeline moving. You design things that are easy to operate and maintain.
  • The ability to break large tasks into manageable releases, focusing on obtaining customer feedback early and often
  • Former teammates who rave about your ability to clearly communicate, empathize with the customer, and “tell it like it is” when there is room for improvement.

An innovative company culture depends on diversity and inclusion. We are an equal opportunity employer and welcome people with different perspectives and experiences.

An Insider's view of Toast

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office has both a relaxed but productive vibe. You'll see people with their heads down working, but you'll also see people hanging out and collaborating in open spaces. There's a good balance between work and play. When I'm not heads down coding, you'll find me playing guitar or hanging out in the Toast Pub.

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.
