I’m Randy Kern, Chief Technology Officer at Marqeta and I’m excited to help kick off the community launch with an AMA!

On Thursday, August 19th, I'll be hosting real-time AMA to answer your questions. Start submitting questions now, below. Here's how it works:

Add your questions below any time before or during the AMA. Be sure to take a look at other community member’s questions and up-vote those that you find interesting.

At 11am PT on Thursday you can expect to see a link to join the Zoom webinar where I'll start answering. 

  1. If you don't have a Marqeta Developer Community account, yet, register for an account
  2. To join the live Zoom session either Post a Question below or Subscribe to this thread before August 19th at 9AM PT and you'll be notified of the zoom details
  3. Once the event has started, open this thread and if you haven't yet post your questions. Watch the page or join the webinar and be ready to add follow-up questions and discuss further with other Community members.
  4. Once the event is over, the thread will be locked, which means that no new questions can be posted. However, anyone will still be able to see the questions and answers from the event.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Congratulations on your new position! My question - it would be nice to simulate all type of card transactions...does Marqeta plan on building out these types of simulations for testing/prototyping?

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!

We all see this consolidation of computing infrastructure around 2-3 cloud providers. Do you see any downsides or risks of this approach in the long term?

As a CTO, what is the mental model or framework you have around building new solutions versus leveraging an existing solution

Thanks for answering my question on impostor syndrome, happy to hear I'm not alone! I’m curious to know what you would recommend to a young engineer at the beginning of her/his career who are aiming for leadership roles somedays. Any wise words from an industry expert are appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!

As a senior leader in a new company, how do you go about building all the context, understanding what is working and what is not working, and building trust with others?
