Our Flexible First approach redefines how we think about work, enabling individuals to create a balance that best suits their working style and preferences. As a Marqetan, you have the choice to work remotely, from a Flex Studio co-working space, or from one of our global offices, depending on your location. Our offices are located in Oakland, CA, London, UK, and Melbourne, Australia.
