Company

Having worked for decades in retail and financial services, we knew there had to be a better way: a way for consumers and businesses to come together for mutual benefit.

So in 2010 we launched Marqeta, a unique platform for the business-consumer relationship. It’s a platform that rewards customer loyalty. And a platform that’s easy and effective for business – replacing other messy incentive programs, yet requiring no new POS machines or training. It’s a platform, above all, where everybody wins. So a consumer pays in advance, via his or her Marqeta account, and, in return, merchants add extra money to the account. It’s that simple – as we knew it had to be.

Beyond the consumer and merchant experience, Marqeta has created the +M Platform to serve the needs of large enterprises, membership organizations and other affinity groups. From employee discount programs to membership rewards to school support and even sports franchises, the +M Platform offers an entirely new approach to enticing and enriching employees, supporters, fans, members, customers, prospects and friends. Find out more at marqeta.com/platform.

Finally, we understand that a 21st century company that touches on finance has to be wide-open to the inquiries of consumers and merchants alike. So transparency has always been one of our operating principles. To that end, we'd like to introduce you to our management team.
