Insider's spotlight

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.

What does your typical day look like?

Most mornings I take a second stab at a problem from the day before. With a good night of sleep I can look at things in a new light. If I’m still blocked, I’ll pair with someone after lunch. I love pairing with my teammates. Each of them offer something different and there are no egos on the table which creates an amazing learning environment.

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.
