We’re looking for a seasoned and empathetic problem-solver, with tons of experience in digital product design, to help us deliver the best banking experience possible.
We’re building a bank for and with our users. 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’ll be working on a product that is a part of day to day life for more than a million people already, and your work here will shape the way that people interact with their finances. We don't expect you to line-manage designers but you'll be an ally and mentor to other product designers who will learn from your direction and experiences.
This post by Zander gives a good idea of how any given week at Monzo looks for a product designer. You might be designing new iterations for the iPhone and Android apps. Or helping to improve growth and virality. Maybe you'll be embedded in marketing to take care of our web. Or you might create new lending features to help our users borrow money with total clarity and control. Or taking our savings and investments strategy to the next level. What about working in our internal product (designed and built in-house) that fuels all our internal operations? We have so much stuff to do. Really.
We use Sketch for all our UI work, Adobe After Effects for animations and Adobe Illustrator for, well, illustrations. The rest of the stack are the usual suspects: Marvel and Principle for prototyping and GitHub for storage and version control. We’re quick to adopt better tools and processes, so you’ll be more than welcome to contribute all the good practices you’ve used before.
We care deeply about inclusive working practices and diverse teams. If you’d prefer to work part-time or as a job-share, we’ll facilitate this wherever we can - whether to help you meet other commitments or to help you strike a great work-life balance. We’re keen to ensure we’re designing a bank that works for everyone, so we particularly encourage applications from different underrepresented demographics.
We started Monzo in February 2015 with the mission of building the best current account in the world. In April 2017, we received our full UK banking licence from the FCA and PRA and are now working hard to roll out our free current account later this year.
We're focused on solving problems, rather than selling financial products. We want to make the world a better place and change people's lives through Monzo.We're doing things differently. For too long, banking has been obtuse, complex and opaque.We want to change that and build a bank with everyone, for everyone. Our amazing community of users suggests features, tests the app and gives us constant feedback so we can build something we all love.
