Tillster is a digital platform that’s transforming the restaurant ordering experience. Major fast food chains use Tillster to interact and engage with their customers online. And on a larger scale, technology developed at this company provides an opportunity for people who live outside major cities to pay for items using only a smartphone.
Though Tillster is still relatively small, the company is already making an impact in the food service industry, both in the United States and globally. “We already have a huge footprint in this space,” shares Ken Duffy, Senior Director of Strategic Accounts. “We’ve got the right technology, we’ve got the right group of people, we’ve got the right momentum, and so the future looks really bright and there’s a lot of room to grow.”
And because Tillster’s business operations are extremely well-integrated, the team should have no problem taking advantage of that growth opportunity. Different teams and divisions communicate openly with one another and function collaboratively rather than separately. In addition, the management style at Tillster is very direct and hands-on—managers are eager to teach and guide members of their teams and consistently maintain an open-door policy.
One thing that’s clear at this organization is that each employee’s opinion matters. “It doesn’t matter where you’re at on the totem pole. It doesn’t matter what your previous skill sets were,” says Jason Clark, a senior software engineer. “Whether you’re new and you’re excited about brand new technology you just saw, or whether you’ve been around for 20 years and you’re bringing old skills to bear on a problem set—everybody will listen to you.”
“The future here at Tillster, I think, is going to be huge,” shares Leslie Ferguson, Creative Director. “There are so many different projects that we have and there is so much to look forward to.”
