Position Summary

Marqeta is a fast-paced technology company experiencing significant growth and expansion. We have a rapidly growing design culture that is heavily involved in strategic decisions, design thinking for process, and of course constantly evolving the aesthetic used to explain who we are and what we do.

We have a complex product offering of cutting edge technology and industry shaping solutions.  Our vision is to have our marketing, design & website match that level of quality and capability through technology and execution while simultaneously succeeding to inform, engage, educate and delight those users. 

Marqeta is aggressively updating and upgrading our user engagement opportunities and 2020 is going to be an exciting year. With new versions of our website, our Platform UI and application interfaces, and all new graphical and video based marketing efforts, our goal is to elevate our customers' (and potential customer’s) experiences in ways that very few technology companies have been able to achieve. A key aspect of doing that in our opinion is through the use of motion and animation. 

From thoughtful and engaging website graphics, to UI interaction to loading screens and transitions, motion graphics and animations have become an important (and expected) aspect of the digital experience. They help tell the story and guide the user. They direct their attention and communicate meaning that goes beyond what static graphics can do.
