Staff Software Engineer, Tech Lead, Menu Management

Every restaurant is unique, and a restaurant’s menu expresses its individual brand and product offerings. Inside a Toast restaurant, the definition of the menu becomes the common language between guests, servers, and the kitchen. In our digital ordering products, a great menu serves as both a billboard and a roadmap to an excellent dining experience. A menu is always evolving: kitchens create new dishes, managers experiment with pricing and presentation, and staff optimize the menu for restaurant operations.

We strive to create products that will satisfy the vast breadth of our restaurants, from single-location coffee shops to complex enterprise brands with hundreds of locations. We offer an extremely powerful and configurable menu platform, and our team exists to ensure that this flexibility can be managed effectively at any scale. Come join the Advanced Menus team as we deliver a great experience to our customers!
