US restaurant tech firm Toast opens Dublin office with 120 new jobs

  • US-based restaurant management platform creator Toast has launched a new office in Dublin with 120 new jobs to be created.

    Restaurant management platform Toast has really taken off and is now set to expand with the opening of a new office in Dublin. The firm's Irish site was set up in 2017 as its first international technology and product development centre and has since grown to over 40 staff members in disciplines ranging from development and engineering to platform support.

    Toast will now be opening a new Dublin office in Ballast House on Westmoreland Street, and expanding to offer 120 new roles focused on new product development. The firm is hiring for jobs in software engineering, software development, product design, and data analytics. IDA Ireland has supported Toast on behalf of the Irish Government to help it make this key investment in Dublin.

    Toast's Senior Vice President of Engineering Hugh Scandrett commented on the opening of the new building: "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."

    Mary Buckley, Executive Director of IDA Ireland, added: "IDA is delighted to support the growth plans for Toast in Dublin and welcomes the additional R&D investment for the technology ecosystem in Ireland. High growth international companies continue to be attracted to Ireland due to the ease of access to a talented workforce."
