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, CEO

In 2018, we opened our Europe office, bringing Marqeta’s unique proposition to digital banks and fintechs across the continent.

“Europe already has a thriving ecosystem of proven fintech propositions, digital banks and financial services startups, but with our unique technology platform now making so many new product opportunities possible, the future of card payments is firmly in the hands of the industry’s innovators.”
