Boston-headquartered Toast provides a single platform of software as a service (SaaS) products and financial technology solutions that give restaurants everything they need to run their business across point of sale, operations, digital ordering and delivery, marketing and loyalty, and team management. Toast went public on the NYSE in September 2021, barely a decade after launching, and employs approximately 4,500 people globally.
Raising a glass to Ireland
In 2017, Toast set up a small technology team in Dublin, driven by the company’s need to access strong technical talent. Today, this team focuses on developing next-generation product features and new technology solutions for the restaurant sector. The Irish site was the company’s first international technology and product development centre globally.
Since first establishing its R&D Operations Centre in Dublin, Toast’s Irish operation has scaled headcount, expanded its mandate, created strategic roles and taken on global responsibility for product development and core platform functions.
Toast originally chose to invest in Ireland largely for its concentration of high-level technical capability; over the last several years, we’ve come to reap so many more benefits from our strategic investment here–ease of collaboration with other Toast teams, Irish hospitality, and more.
