Android Engineer Returnship

Are you ready to restart your career as an Android engineer? 

The Path Forward Return to Work program at Toast is a 16-week paid returnship for experienced professionals returning to the workforce after taking time off for caregiving. The program is open to individuals who have at least 5 years of professional experience and have been out of the paid workforce for at least two years to focus on caring for a child or other dependent. If you meet these criteria, we invite you to apply. 

At Toast we are excited to be part of the Path Forward program because we appreciate the skills you can offer, the perspective you provide, and the contributions you will make. This program offers you a chance to revamp your skills, update your resume with new experience, and make connections with others transitioning back to the workforce. It also offers support through Path Forward, a nonprofit organization on a mission to empower people who’ve been focused on caregiving, to transition back into the paid workforce.

About Toast

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.

Now, more than ever, the Toast team is committed to our customers. We’re taking steps to help restaurants navigate these unprecedented times with technology, resources, and community. Our focus is on building the restaurant platform that helps restaurants adapt, take control, and get back to what they do best: building the businesses they love. And because our technology is purpose-built for restaurants, by restaurant people, restaurants can trust that we’ll deliver on their needs for today while investing in experiences that will power their restaurant of the future.

Android at Toast 

The Android POS (point-of-sale) app is the central pillar of Toast’s restaurant products. Servers, hosts, bartenders, and chefs use Toast’s POS to serve millions of guests every day! The POS app is built on a custom Android ROM and runs on custom hardware built by Toast. We offer a variety of devices of different form factors and the mobile app adapts to each of them. And since it’s the only app on the device (besides the default apps), our deployment model opens up a wide variety of both opportunities and challenges that make Android development at Toast a unique experience. Our tech recipe includes mostly Kotlin, some Java, and a small number of RESTful calls to our AWS backend platform. Transactional and configuration data is automatically synchronized with the cloud by our own data sync architecture.

About this roll* (Responsibilities) 

We are seeking engineers who are excited about the prospect of using Android and mobile technology to improve the experience of staff and guests in the restaurant community.  Engineers in this role can expect to: 

  • Design, build, and maintain features of our Android POS app
  • Ensure quality by building automated testing for changes
  • Roll features out to customers, including monitoring for success
  • Collaborate with UX and PM on the definition and design of features  
  • Collaborate with team to plan and estimate work
  • Work with engineers to get design and code review 

All of our team members get real world experience designing, building, deploying, and maintaining resilient and scalable products that are critical to our customers’ success.

Do you have the right ingredients*? (Requirements)

At least five years of previous professional experience in software development. 

While this role will be focused on contributions to our Android app, extensive Android experience is not required.   

Research shows that candidates from underrepresented backgrounds often don't apply for roles if they don't meet all the criteria.

At Toast we are committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace, and are invested in building teams with a wide variety of backgrounds, identities, and experiences.
