We’re on a mission to empower the world’s innovators
We come to work every day to serve the builders, dreamers and underserved by making modern card payments simple.
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.”
