Hi!

I’m Charley Ma and I’m currently doing all things fintech at Alloy in NYC. We’re hiring!! I’m always happy to grab ice cream/fries/tea/food to talk startups, fintech, or new anime recommendations. Feel free to email me at firstnamelastname@gmail.com.

I was previously one of the first business hires and head of growth at Ramp, helping to launch the first corporate card built for savings. During my tenure, Ramp was one of the fastest growing corporate card programs in the US and raised over $50M in venture capital from Founder’s Fund, Coatue, D1 Capital, and many more.

Prior to Ramp, I was the first business hire at Plaid, a San Francisco based startup that enables applications to connect to financial accounts via API. I led our fintech + developer sales vertical in SF as well as built out our New York office over my 5 years. Plaid raised over $300M in venture capital from NEA, Spark Capital, Goldman Sachs, A16Z, Index Ventures, and many others prior to our announced exit to Visa for $5.3B (which subsequently did not go through in 2021 so hurray for being private again).

Prior to Plaid, I started my career at JPMorgan Chase, working across several strategy groups covering payments, APIs, blockchain, and fintech.

Writing!

I currently write for Fintech Today every other Thursday – subscribe or follow me on twitter for random thoughts on fintech :).
