The Payments teams at Toast operate one of the most critical portions of the Toast infrastructure: processing payments on behalf of our restaurants and ensuring that restaurants are paid in a timely manner. Payment processing is a key source of Toasts revenue and also the lifeblood of our customers: we process multiple millions of dollars in transactions per day. Our payment processing systems operate in a highly secure environment with zero downtime, with our engineers practicing strong discipline to keep things running smoothly.
Our payments system is built as a set of Java microservices deployed to AWS, interacting with thousands of Android tablets using modern payments hardware, as well as partners through our API. The payments industry is constantly changing and this team operates right in the middle of it, growing Toasts capabilities in response to changing markets and customer scale.
Some projects weve been recently working on include:
- Building a system that lets Toast securely and quickly link consumer credit cards to loyalty accounts
- Improving the performance of the system used to settle payments in the Toast platform
- Adding the ability for Toast restaurants to adopt Amex OptBlue - a payment option that allows smaller businesses to accept American Express credit cards easily
