We are the world’s first modern card issuing platform
Our mission is to be the global standard for modern card issuing, empowering builders to bring the most innovative products to the world.
Our journey has focused on simplifying payments for businesses
In 2009, our founder and CEO Jason Gardner had a vision to simplify payments. Built from the ground up, our platform enables developers to launch new programs with speed, flexibility & scale. Obsessed with making the complex easy, Marqeta evolved into the world’s first open API modern card issuing platform.
“Marqeta runs 24/7, 365 days a year. If we don’t operate near perfect, our customers suffer. We take that responsibility as mission critical.”
Jason Gardner, Founder and Executive Chairman
