Our Tech Stack

Our products run on a stack that ranges from mobile devices to backend services in .NET Core to internal, restaurant-facing webapps. The web frontend is built using .NET MVC, Angular and React. We have mobile applications for both Android and Apple device lovers.  Our backend services follow a microservices architecture written in .NET Core and Python with a SQL Server and DynamoDB backend. We are beginning to adapt the core platform used elsewhere at Toast, which is based in Kotlin, DynamoDB, and Postgres.. 

We use AWS extensively including ECS, EKS, DynamoDB, Lambda, and SQS.
