Life at Marqeta

We’re a diverse team on a mission to help builders and dreamers change the world. We value community and each other. Our work environment reflects our priorities, and we strive to learn, grow, connect, and create every day.

During these unprecedented times, we are all working 100% remotely with plans to slowly and safely return to the office after stay-at-home measures have been lifted.

Best company in the East Bay

Marqeta is doing fintech right. The business is growing really well and the people are some of the best I’ve worked with. Challenging, fulfilling work. One of the best companies in the Bay Area and hands down the best in the East Bay. This company is being built to last and I’m proud to be a part of helping it do that.

Great product, leadership and company culture

I have loved my time at Marqeta so far! The product has a great market fit and is a true leader in its category. They hire smart, driven, and talented people across all levels and employees are encouraged to take on new challenges and invest in their personal growth, which is extremely important. I appreciate how the leadership team takes action and makes improvements based on employee feedback and genuinely cares about the people at the company. 

Values-driven business that is shining during a difficult time

With COVID-19, I have been impressed with the care that the leadership has shown to adapt the work culture to difficult circumstances: serving our customers, regular communications and updates, and supporting a fully remote office now with everything from reimbursing for office equipment to virtual office hours with the CEO.

Our engineers are building modern tools to change how money moves
