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.
