We’re looking for an empathetic manager with a technical background to support and coach our mobile engineers.
At Monzo we aim to build the best current account in the world. We are looking for an engineering manager to join us and support our mobile engineers as we grow into a world-class engineering organisation.
We work in interdisciplinary teams arranged around a mission, with clear responsibilities and objectives, and the right people in the team to independently ship from their own roadmap. This means you’ll manage iOS and Android engineers who may be in different teams and with different priorities.
We care deeply about building an inclusive and diverse culture in which everyone can succeed. Our engineers have a variety of different backgrounds: we have several non-graduates; only a few of us studied Computer Science; one of the team has a degree in Marketing; some of us have worked in huge companies; some have only ever worked in startups; others are former consultants.
Your focus will be on helping each of them with their personal and professional development, listening, guiding them through hard times and celebrating their successes.
You'll understand the kind of challenges associated with building mobile apps in a company with multiple consumer facing engineering teams.
We encourage an open and transparent working environment. You can get involved in any aspect of the business you are interested in and, following Stripe’s example, all emails in the company are visible in an email archive. We regularly run hackathons in which people build things on our third party API and we contribute to open source software as much as possible. We’ve also made our product roadmap public and give sneak peeks of features in our community forum.
If you’re unsure about applying or have any questions about the role or team, please don’t hesitate to email Andy from our Engineering Support Team on firstname.lastname@example.org 😊We're very open about what we do in general, so our blog is a good place to learn more about what we do.
Monzo is growing very quickly. We've doubled our headcount over the past 10 months and expect to keep growing at approximately that rate. Our current hypothesis is that the best way to stay productive during this growth is to create small, interdisciplinary teams, that are able to independently achieve their objectives and ship things from their own roadmap.
The interview process consists of a 45-60 minute phone call, followed by 2 hours of face to face interviews at our office in Moorgate, London. Sometimes, we arrange a follow-up interview to discuss the feedback from the first onsite stage.
We're an equal opportunity employer and prize diversity as a strength. Whoever you are, you're welcome at Monzo. 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.
