Our journey has focused on simplifying payments for businesses

In 2009, our Founder and Executive Chairman 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.”
