We’re looking for an experienced senior leader to manage, lead and inspire our Customer Operations (COps) team in Las Vegas which will soon be 100+ strong.  You’ll be responsible for providing vision and leadership for our teams with overall responsibility for supporting the team to continuously develop and perform at their best. You’ll make sure that the site runs smoothly as it rapidly grows to mirror our 250+ strong COps hub in Cardiff, and strive to make it a great environment for our teams.

Our customer operations team is at the heart of Monzo

Every person in this team cares about our customers’ problems and is empowered to solve them quickly and with minimal fuss. We work in small squads of 10 people, which are split between communication channels and time periods. Squads can specialise in social media responses, helping customers over the phone or responding via in-app chat. You’ll be able to help make sure customers have a great experience every time they contact us.

As the Head of our Las Vegas site, you’ll provide support and leadership

You’ll directly manage a number of senior managers so they can meet their personal and professional development goals, actively helping them to identify and work on things which will help them to grow. You’ll organise people around you and take quick action when you see a problem coming - whether it’s not enough people covering the right types of queries, a training need, or something going wrong. You’ll listen to your people, guide them through hard times and celebrate their successes. You’ll have responsibility for some employee relations matters and work closely with your colleagues in other offices to make sure that we apply these policies fairly across all areas of COps.

As we start bringing Monzo to the US, you’ll also play a key part in shaping how we support our US customers.

Communication between offices is a key challenge

You’ll work directly with Head of Customer Operations and senior stakeholders within COps to share ideas and support each other. You’ll make sure communication between all areas is seamless, gathering feedback and sharing the same consistent message with all team members. Our current offices include London, Cardiff and a sizeable distributed team.

Each day you’ll be:

  • Instilling a strong customer-centric culture and keeping everyone focussed on what really matters: helping our customers with their personal financial lives
  • Helping our managers outperform in their roles by: having regular 1:1s; giving and receiving feedback about people, process and QA; coaching, mentoring, and developing high performing squads and leaders
  • Running leadership group sessions, e.g. knowledge sharing
  • Supporting the growth of your site and Monzo by contributing to hiring and helping us scale and grow
  • Helping us become an exceptional place to work for the ambitious, highly motivated COps that we hire

You should apply if:

  • You have significant senior management experience, ideally in a customer-centric role
  • You’ve led and scaled successful teams to achieve their goals and have an empathetic leadership style
  • You’re as comfortable working 1:1 as you are communicating with large groups
  • You empower your people to find solutions themselves
  • You can motivate teams working on ongoing operational work
  • You are very hands-on and solve problems when you spot them
  • What we are doing at Monzo excites you!
  • You’re a US citizen or have a permit, visa or other legal authorisation which lets you work in the US

To be effective in your role you’ll also spend some time learning the ins and outs of the Customer Support job.

Logistics:

The application process consists of a short phone interview, followed by a practical written exercise and a couple of on-site interviews at our office in Las Vegas.

We offer a competitive salary dependent on skills and experience, plus other benefits. These include, but aren't limited to:

  • 32 days paid vacation per year
  • Healthcare - 100% contribution to medical, dental and vision insurance
  • Generous parental leave policy
  • Work from home (when you need to)
  • Catered lunches twice a week
  • Personal learning budget for books, training courses and conferences to help you learn and grow
  • Team-building, socials and other fun get-togethers

Your answers to the application questions below are really important to us, so please take your time on these. Once you've submitted your application, we'll review along with your CV.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
