Square processes billions of dollars worth of transactions every year. At that scale, even small optimizations can lead to huge business impact. Payment Intelligence makes data-driven improvements to core payment profitability by focusing on pricing, routing, decline rates and transaction cost. This work has a direct impact on Square’s profitability and financial success. This team consists of engineers that work together closely with data scientists and analysts to find and implement optimizations to our payment stack. In addition, Payment Intelligence owns the payment pricing platform at Square. It invents and develops innovative price models such as custom pricing and cost-plus to make pricing more enticing for sellers.
Transaction Cost datastore – We are utilizing the next-generation cloud data infrastructure in order to provide a stable data foundation to do ML training and calculate transaction cost real time.
Pricing Platform - as Square’s product ecosystem is growing, we need to support ever changing pricing requirements and invent new price models to make them more enticing for sellers.
Routing Recommendation - We optimize our profit margin by finding the best route for payment transactions to be routed to vendors based on ML-based cost predictions and business rules.
