Meet Guest Center. https://guestcenter.opentable.com/
Guest Center is the hero of OpenTable, the platform that restaurants use to manage their tables and guests. Our app is used by hosts, servers, and managers of restaurants, so our audience is a unique set of end users. You’ll get to have a meaningful impact on people who are required to use our software as part of their job in a high-pressure situation. We have a lot of interesting problems to tackle, from inventory management, high performance syncing, creating UIs that restaurant employees will learn and use very quickly, data mining and insights, and much more. From network stack problems to data algorithms, pixel-perfect UIs to elegant, data-rich views, you'll find plenty of fun things to work on.
