What is your vision for the company?

Ultimately, I’d like to issue a card on every single continent because we see that there’s FinTech’s being built from countries all over the world. It’s been interesting to see how modern card issuing, a category that we invented has grown. There’s still an extraordinary amount to do. New businesses are being invented every day that we can power.

Marqeta is at that sweet spot as a company: we are established and stable, but you still have great opportunity to make an impact. It's never boring! I love getting to work on exciting, innovative products for our diverse set of customers.
