We’re here to make money work for everyone and 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 suggests features, test the app and give us constant feedback so we can build something everyone loves.
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.
About our Finance Team:
We're looking for a highly proactive, enthusiastic and commercially-minded Product Controller to work within our Financial Reporting team, and help us build a world-class Finance function.
We have some really exciting challenges coming up in Finance like building out our Treasury function, transacting derivatives and more complex fixed income products. Across the business we’re also launching investment products, continuing to grow our customer base, keep growing our lending business and add to our marketplace. You’ll work on scaling Monzo in a controlled way, while helping us optimise our financial control processes with the help of technology. You’ll join the Finance team and report to one of our Financial Reporting Managers.
- Work very closely with our Treasury team as we build our product control capabilities in Finance, helping support them with their interest rate swap and investment transactions.
- Take ownership of the daily control processes around these products, including trade confirmations, daily profit and loss reporting, independent price verification and helping to build out best-practice, scaleable controls.
- Help manage a tight process with the rest of our Finance team to ensure a swift month-end close process for those products you’re responsible for.
- Understand the Treasury business and their products to write insightful management commentary.
- Work with our engineers to automate the production elements of this role, allowing you to focus on the parts of the role where your knowledge and skills provide the most value.
- Work with our 2nd and 3rd lines of defence to develop a robust control environment.
- Help review new products, assessing the accounting and implementing them in our banking platform and accounting system.
- Prepare monthly management and adhoc reports, offering meaningful analysis of movements.
- Resolve miscellaneous inquiries and supporting the overall Finance team wherever needed - from forecasting and valuations, to bank transfers and new system implementations.
You should apply if:
- You’re a qualified accountant, and have had 1-2 years’ experience in product control (bonus points for Treasury experience)
- You have a great eye for detail
- You’re fascinated by the banking and regulatory landscape, and have a good understanding of key financial controls
- You’re a self-starter and enjoy tackling what needs doing, whether it’s making a bank transfer or pulling together reports for management or investors
- You’re comfortable translating complex information into simple words for people with diverse backgrounds
- You’re interested in using data (SQL skills would be a bonus)
- You thrive in a dynamic and constantly evolving environment
- What we’re doing at Monzo excites you!
The Interview Process:
Our interview process involves 3 main stages:
- 30 mins phone call with a recruiter
- An initial call with someone from the team
- 2-3 interviews remotely via hangouts
Our average process takes around 2-3 weeks but we will always work around your availability. You will have the chance to speak to our recruitment team at various points during your process but if you do have any specific questions ahead of this please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
