We're looking for an Engineering Manager to join our Platform team.

As a team, we’re responsible for designing, building, and operating the services we consume from AWS, along with the software we run on top like Kubernetes, Cassandra, Prometheus, and Kafka. We’re also responsible for operating our three physical data centres, our  network, and being on-call for the things we own and run.

We've posted a good overview of our platform on our blog if you’d like to learn more.

At Monzo, we're building a bank that is fair, transparent and a delight to use. We’re growing extremely fast and have close to five million customers in the UK, with over 100,000 new people joining every month. We’ve built a product that people love and more than 80% of our growth comes from word of mouth and referrals.

Engineering managers at Monzo are accountable for the technical and delivery outcomes for their team. Your focus will be on helping to create an autonomous, high performing team - to foster an environment where decisions are delegated and can be made and communicated effectively.

You’ll spend your time:

  • Supporting, mentoring and developing high performing engineers through regular 1:1s, continuous feedback and relationships with team leads.
  • Working with fellow engineering managers and the Platform Technical Director to ensure a high-performing team that consistently and iteratively delivers high-impact, high-quality work.
  • Contributing to your team's strategy and helping your team set a long term roadmap. You’ll also help with defining, planning, and driving large-scale programmes of work from start to finish.
  • Collaborating with engineers in your teams to break down large programmes into deliverable projects

You should apply if:

  • You have experience managing or mentoring the performance and development of high-performing engineers.
  • You know what good looks like for a high-performing team of engineers and know how to get there. 
  • You have previously worked as a software engineer at a senior level, ideally in the platform or infrastructure domain.
  • You have an empathetic leadership style and you build strong, effective relationships.
  • You care deeply about helping others achieve their goals, and become the best engineers they can be.

Logistics

The interview process consists of a 30 min recruiter call, 45-60 minute video call, followed by 3 hours of technical, management and leadership interviews over video call. Sometimes, we arrange a follow-up interview to discuss the feedback before making a final decision.

We encourage an open and transparent working environment. You can contribute ideas to and ask questions of 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.

Diversity and inclusion is a priority for us – if we want to solve problems for people around the world, our team has to represent our customers. 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, from home or as a job-share, we'll make this happen whenever we can - whether this is to help you meet other commitments or strike a great work-life balance.

We offer competitive salaries based on skills and experience, which could be anywhere between £90,000 - £140,000 per year.
