About us: 

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.

  • Monitor, troubleshoot and solve any problems with existing software, including updates, configuration changes and upgrades
  • Support relationship management with vendors, make sure we are getting the support we need and the project work is on track
  • Work closely with engineering to make sure we have top-notch data quality and help monitor data flows between systems
  • Train Monzonauts on the use of any new software applications
  • Work across with (non-Finance) squads in Monzo to support the strategic direction and workload of Finance
