Senior DevOps Engineer

| Greater Boston Area

We are a rapidly growing company that’s revolutionizing the way the restaurant industry does business by pairing technology with an extraordinary commitment to customer success. We help restaurants streamline operations, increase revenue, and deliver amazing guest experiences through our platform that combines restaurant point of sale, guest-facing technology, and award-winning customer support. As a Toaster, you will be challenged to take on meaningful projects that will help craft the future of the company. Join us as we empower the restaurant community to delight guests, do what they love, and thrive.

The DevOps team at Toast is responsible for the smooth functioning of our staging and production environments, including all of our applications, infrastructural components such as databases, cache servers, queueing services, and network security. We serve both Toast's customers and Toast's software engineering requirements.

Some projects we’ve been working on recently include:

  • Building greater robustness in our messaging systems (RabbitMQ)
  • Large transformation workflows rendering our relational data to our customers for better analytics and reporting (Apache Spark; AWS Lambda and Step Functions)
  • Maintenance and tooling for our sharded, large relational databases
  • Robust payment systems that function even during service degradation
  • Better, more coherent observability of our systems through system metrics, APM data, and logs

As a Sr. DevOps Engineer, you will:

  • Build new automation to expand and maintain our AWS hosting infrastructure
  • Create developer tools in support of a rapidly growing company
  • Use your familiarity with DevOps methodologies and practices to foster a culture of quality, while facilitating developer velocity

Do you have the right ingredients?

  • Experience maintaining large-scale infrastructure (150+ servers)
  • 5+ years working with scripting, and object oriented programming languages (Python & Java preferred)
  • Substantial experience with configuration management (especially Ansible and Terraform)
  • A solid understanding of Linux internals on several distributions (Ubuntu, CentOS, etc.)
  • Substantial experience with version control software
  • At least 3 years of experience with modern CI/CD tools (preference towards Jenkins)
  • Prior experience with containerization and orchestration technologies (Docker most pertinent)
  • Exceptional experience with automated configuration and deployment
  • Familiarity with Cloud deployment workflows and cloud IaaS providers (preferably AWS)
  • A get-things-done attitude, and track record of success
  • Preference will be given to candidates who also have experience with Hadoop, Apache Kafka, AWS Kinesis, Postgres (as a DBA) and administering and scaling RabbitMQ
  • Experience deploying Kubernetes is nice to have
  • Experience with large-scale, fault-tolerant Cassandra clusters is nice to have

An Insider's view of Toast

What are some social events your company does?

Toast puts a major focus on culture and centers its events around keeping Toasters engaged and social. In the past 6 months alone, we’ve had a competitive field day, a summer appreciation event (with a bonfire, food, drinks, and music), and a fall cookout where we had a pig roast and potluck. One of our own employees even performed with his band.

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.
