About Toast

Toast empowers restaurants of all sizes to build great teams, increase revenue, improve operations, and delight guests.

Job Description

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.

We’re building a brand-new team to put the power of the entire Toast platform into the pockets of restaurant managers and operators! With our new app, managers will be able to track the performance of their restaurant in real-time during service. Using their own phones, managers will fine-tune restaurant operations from the floor of the restaurant in response to real-world conditions. This new app will also help staff rapidly diagnose and fix unexpected issues with the help of Toast Customer Care. By leveraging native mobile apps, we’ll provide a rich UX that makes it easier than ever to run a thriving restaurant with great service for guests and a strong bottom line. 

Our team is very agile and extremely customer-focused. UX, PM, and software engineers will be working hand-in-hand every day, and the team works directly with pilot customers to get feedback. We have high standards for customer satisfaction, and we strive to deliver high quality features in rapid iterative cycles.    

We are looking to bring a Mobile Architect to help scale our native applications as we add more customers and functionality. In this role, you will be accountable for the quality of the product as well as the quality of the code base as we scale the product and the team. You will also work closely with product and design leadership, helping to define the overall strategy of the app in the near and far future.

This role requires you to work across multiple platforms (Android and iOS) with the native engineers on the teams. You should be able to go really deep in at least one of the platforms.

About this role (Responsibilities)

  • Ship code that has a massive impact on helping restaurant employees thrive
  • Be part of a team working collaboratively with Research, Design, Product, and other engineers.
  • Champion best practices for development, deployment, and quality life-cycles
  • Mentor other native engineers on the team
  • Act as a Mobile leader across the company

Do you have the right ingredients? (Requirements)

  • Proficient in one or more architecture patterns, like MVC, MVP, MVVM, VIPER, etc.
  • Experience with mobile testing culture in an agile environment.
  • Experience with building high-quality native iOS apps with Swift or Android apps with Kotlin and Jetpack.
  • Have built out an app from conception all the way through to the Apple AppStore or Google PlayStore.
  • Interest in backend and web technologies - e.g., GraphQL, JVM Microservices, Javascript, React is a plus.
  • Knowledge of mobile CI/CD is a plus.

Our Tech Stack

We develop our native apps on iOS and Android using Swift and Kotlin, both of which follow a similar architecture that is as close to the platform as possible.  Our Android app uses Jetpack and the latest packages from Google. Both apps use Apollo GraphQL for a majority of their API models and networking. Our backend services use Kotlin and Node.js. Our backend services follow a microservice architecture written using GraphQL, Kotlin, and DropWizard; we use AWS extensively, ranging from S3 to RDS to Lambda.
