Job Description


We’re looking for a talented web developer who cares about accessibility to join our design team and own all of our web-based features and presence.

At Monzo we’re working to build the best current account in the world. A product that’s fair, transparent and a pleasure to use. We see ourselves as something more than a typical current account: we’re setting out to solve all the problems that exist around your financial life in a coherent, meaningful and delightful way.

You’d be the first engineer within our design team. Design at Monzo is a horizontal team that owns how Monzo looks and works - from the hot coral Monzo cards to our website, our apps to our email newsletters.

You’ll own our website and web-based product features. This includes our website at monzo.com, our blog, our careers pages, mobile web views, product features like monzo.me and our email newsletters. As well as a passion for accessibility and inclusivity, you’ll need a strong understanding of design principles, and the tradeoffs involved when making design decisions.

You’ll spend your time:

  • making sure our public web properties are as beautiful and easy to use as our mobile applications
  • implementing web accessibility and responsive design best practices across every Monzo touchpoint on the internet
  • building from scratch the style guide that will enable Monzo design to evolve into a scalable set of patterns and components, beautiful and easy to reuse
  • creating delightful, clean, responsive emails
  • shaping the direction of our public web stack and improving its self-service capabilities
  • supporting teams across the company (marketing, hiring, lending) whenever there is a need for some self-contained web work

You should apply if:

  • You have some professional experience working as a web developer, ideally in a fast-paced environment
  • You have a strong grounding in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and have used common libraries such as jQuery
  • You're passionate about web technologies, intuitive clean design, and great user experience
  • You're detail oriented and enjoy turning mockups into pixel-perfect responsive web versions of the same design
  • You're comfortable with responsive design; web accessibility; CSS module systems and pattern libraries
  • You have explored static page generators like Jekyll or Hugo, and SPA Frameworks such as React, Ember, Angular or others.

Bonus points for experience or keen interest in: web performance optimisation, web security, SEO and Web Analytics.
