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 Business Banking Team:
We’re looking for a Product Director with an entrepreneurial mindset to join one of the fastest growing and impactful collectives at Monzo - Business Banking. We’re also the winner of the Best Business Banking Provider (British Bank Awards) for 2022!
Monzo Business serves over 250,000 small businesses - nearly 1 in 20 business in the UK. The team is currently made up of 3 product squads focussed on meeting the most important needs of our small business customers. We plan to continue growing the Business Banking collective to 5 product squads by the end of the year. The squads design and build new features, optimise existing ones and run growth experiments.
We know business banking shouldn't be complicated. So, we've built a business bank account that lets business owners get on with running their business. Our simple, powerful app lets busy business owners sort their finances with ease, wherever they are: starting with our quick and easy sign-up process. Making payments, sending invoices and saving for tax are simple - just as they should be.
