Hi Randy! Thanks for doing this.
Can you talk about your experiences with impostor syndrome in any of your positions, and ways you were able to work past/around those feelings? I’m in my first job after university and the feeling is strong!
Coming from Salesforce and Microsoft, how do you see the challenge of building huge infrastructure like that, overlapping with the challenges in payments? Looking forward to the session!
Thanks for hosting this AMA, Randy. What do you see as Marqeta's greatest strength as a platform? And how does this compare to competitors?

Any wise words from an industry expert are appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!
