We’re searching for a passionate, product minded engineering manager to join our Product organisation. Product at Monzo covers everything from the features you see in our iOS and Android apps for personal and business customers, the backend systems that power them, the tooling that enables us to support thousands of customer service agents, to the systems that connect directly to our card processor and payment schemes around the world. All of this enabling over 5 million customers to better manage their money.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for an Engineering Manager with a track record of leading high performing, productive engineering teams - while this is not a role which requires hand-on-coding, we’re looking for managers who have previous experience as a senior engineer in a team.

We recognise that engineering managers lead in different ways, we’re looking for someone who has: 

  • The ability to communicate clearly and effectively, both in writing and verbally.
  • Comfort operating with ambiguous problem areas with a high degree of autonomy
  • A focus on outcomes over processes, who optimises for the highest impact and leverage.
  • The ability to input, understand and challenge engineering decisions - but to empower the team to make those decisions themselves.
  • A high degree of empathy, and a drive to create an inclusive team environment.
  • Effectively hired and structured an engineering team.
  • A relentless drive to create a product that solves genuine customer needs
  • Understanding of what good looks like for a high-performing team of engineers and ability to chart a course to get there.
  • An ability to coach people to achieve their goals.
  • A natural ability to inspire and motivate a team.


Our compensation is based on a combination of salary and equity, the base salary range for this role is between £90,000 and £140,000 depending on experience.


Our interview process is:

  1. A 30 min intro with a member of our recruitment team.
  2. A 1 hour call with someone from our senior engineering leadership team. We’ll ask you questions about your current and previous roles, as well as what a high performing team looks like for you, and how you’ve helped create them in the past.
  3. A 3 stage final-round interview, split between a collaboration with one of our engineers on a technical exercise, as well as management and leadership interviews.
  4. We may follow up with a final stage interview, to discuss any feedback before making a final decision.

At all stages we’ll create space for you to ask as many questions as you have, you’re interviewing us as well!

We support a flexible working environment, and support managers who wish to be based from our London office, or work remotely from the UK.

We're an equal opportunity employer and prize diversity as a strength. Everyone is 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.

What is engineering management like at Monzo?

Monzo is a product, engineering and design led business, with a global ambition.

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 five million people already, and your work here will shape the way that people interact with their finances.

Engineers and Engineering Managers at Monzo are part of cross-functional, autonomous teams and groups. Our teams are mission driven, and typically include Product Managers, backend, web and mobile engineers as well as data scientists, designers and subject matter experts relevant to that mission. Teams are organised into groups, and then collectives - we aim to keep our line management structure as shallow as possible, and for teams to directly own decision making relevant to their work.

Engineering Managers are accountable for the technical and delivery outcomes for their area - that means supporting and developing best in class engineering talent, as well as creating an inclusive team environment for people to do their best work. You’ll be responsible for structuring, organising, supporting and challenging your team to deliver on their mission.
