Toast, the fastest-growing restaurant management platform in the U.S., today launched the opening of its new office in Dublin and officially announced plans to grow its headcount by adding 120 new roles focused on new product development for the company. The Irish site is the company’s first international technology and product development centre globally and was first established in 2017. Since then, the team has grown to over 40 staff members across engineering, development and support roles.
The new office based in Ballast House on Westmoreland Street accommodates over 200 people. Toast is now hiring new recruits in software engineering, data analytics, product design and software development. The company is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
Commenting on his visit Dublin for the official opening, Hugh Scandrett, Senior Vice President of engineering said, “The response to placing our first international office in Dublin has been positive and we look forward to growing our presence here. I look forward to expanding our team with talented people and developing products that will be central to Toast’s growth in the coming years. Dublin is a recognised technology hub in Europe which makes it the right location for our investment in this great new office.”
