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.

What are some things you learned at the company?

Where should I start? For hard skills, I’ve learned more than I ever thought I would about Excel and Salesforce. I’ve also learned what it looks like when a company not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. We’ve been able to execute on what we’ve set out to do because we are willing to try new things, make mistakes, and learn from them.
