We're looking for someone who knows payments and loves payments technology, but who also could have fashioned themselves a sales and BD executive.

Know the Tech: Quickly get up to speed on Marqeta's technical capabilities. Understand the unique features and customer benefits our platform offers and how to speak with confidence, knowledge, and credibility about what we bring to our customers.

Serve as the business development liaison as the "voice of our customers" when engaging with product and technology.
Support the Sales Process: From your first day, you will be expected to work on real customer opportunities through a sales process, from initial engagement to pricing discussions to final contract negotiations. Use your functional payment knowledge to educate, problem-solve, and deliver guidance to our customers. At any given time, you may be supporting as many as 20 - 30 opportunities in various stages of that process.
Engage with Customer Opportunities: You're someone who must love working with customers. Your audience will be with our customers' developers, product managers, engineers, and business heads. Our BD team will rely on you to ensure the key technical influencers of our customers (and potential customers) deeply understand our technology, what makes it different and better than that of our competitors, and how to quickly get integrated and live.
Trendspotting: As you engage with customers and our team, we think you'll have the best vantage point from which to spot key trends, emerging customer needs, and gaps in the market where Marqeta can have an advantage.
