We’re looking for a number of Technical Product Managers (although your current job title might be slightly different!) to join our Platform Collective, responsible for building and running the platforms and capabilities that enable teams across Monzo.
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.
We’ve advertised the role as being a Technical Product Manager role as we feel this best describes what you’ll be doing. Some tech companies call the role Technical Program Manager, some call them Product Managers. At Monzo, you’ll be responsible for:
- Setting the long term roadmap for your squad; defining, managing, and driving large-scale programmes of work from start to finish, balancing competing priorities, and making value-based decisions to ensure we’re working on the most impactful things that keep our systems reliable and secure
- Collaborating with the engineers in your squads to break down large programmes into deliverable projects. You’ll need to have a deep understanding of the technologies we use, and use this technical knowledge to contribute to systems design where needed.
- Forming a strong partnership with Engineering Managers and other leaders across the collective to ensure our squads are well equipped to succeed. You won’t be managing anyone in this role, but being able to give direct feedback and partnering with others to drive improvements to how squads are working is an important part of what you’ll be doing.
This role will be part of the Security team
Monzo’s security engineering teams have a wide range of responsibilities, from low-level security infrastructure and systems used by engineers across Monzo, to staff and endpoint security. As a bank, we are solving diverse, novel problems to ensure that our customers and their data are secure.
One of the guiding principles of security at Monzo is that security at the expense of user experience is a last resort. We aim to move mountains in the background so that we can build world-class features without compromising on security.
As a Security TPM you’d be able to work directly with lots of teams across the company, and we run regular knowledge-sharing sessions so you’ll learn heaps about everything; from how banks work to effective communication and the technologies we use.
Here are some of the projects the team have worked on in the past:
- Controlling outbound traffic from Kubernetes
- Building our secret management platform
- Detecting and stopping phishing attacks
You should apply if:
- You have experience working as a Technical Product Manager or something similar
- You have recent and strong Security domain experience
- You’re an ex-engineer or have experience in a hands-on technical role; we absolutely need someone in these roles who understand the systems we’re working on in detail
- Leading large-scale programmes of work across multiple teams is second nature to you
- You’re passionate about building a reliable, secure and scalable platform capable of serving millions of our customers
- You can make sensible, value and risk based trade-offs when forming our strategy and prioritising our roadmaps.
- You’ve got experience of scaling teams and adapting ways of working to suit
We can help you relocate to London & we can sponsor visas.
This role can be based in our London office, but we're open to distributed working (as long as you can spend around 20% of your time in London).
We have payroll set up in four countries: the UK, Ireland, France, and Spain. Right now, we can only hire people who work from those countries and we’ll keep this updated with new ones as we expand and are able to hire from more places
The closing date for this job is 30/10/2020.
We offer flexible working hours and trust you to work enough hours to do your job well, at times that suit you and your team.

So we need to attract the best talent and create an environment that supports and includes them. You can read more about diversity and inclusion on our blog.
If you prefer to work part-time, we'll make this happen whenever we can - whether this is to help you meet other commitments or strike a great work-life balance.
