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.

About our Business Borrowing Team:

This is a brand new team that will build products to meet the borrowing needs of our 400,000 Monzo Business customers. We’ve already built an award-winning business current account that helps small businesses stay on top of their finances. The Business Borrowing team is building on these solid foundations. They’re tackling a huge opportunity and they have the freedom to work out, from first principles, what to build.

What you’ll be doing: 

  • You’ll lead a cross-functional team to design, build and grow products to support our business customers with their borrowing needs. You’ll do this by building a deep understanding of customer needs in this space, as well as understanding what is and isn’t possible from commercial, regulatory, operational and technical perspectives. You’ll use this to set a product strategy.
  • You’ll communicate effectively with people of all levels of seniority. You’ll get people inspired by the product vision and you’ll share the right context with the right people at the right time.
  • You’ll lead planning processes and associated roadmap prioritisation to get your team working on the highest impact priorities that contribute to wider business goals. 
  • You’ll work iteratively and collaboratively with credit risk, design, engineering, research, data science, product marketing, compliance and many others to refine your plan and execute against it effectively.
  • You’ll help to shape product strategy across Monzo by sharing insights from your work.

Your day-to-day   

  • Leading a workshop with your team to hypothesise solutions to key customer pain points identified in research
  • Presenting your latest product strategy to stakeholders at Product Review and gathering feedback and challenge
  • Working closely with credit risk experts to ensure the product and credit strategy are tightly aligned
  • Planning and joining research calls to better understand how businesses are borrowing today
  • Speaking to compliance specialists to be clear on what rules the product needs to follow and to brainstorm ways to achieve this
  • Researching and understanding market trends, industry best practices, and opportunities for Monzo to pursue

You should apply if:

  • You’ve got extensive experience of shipping successful, customer-centric digital products in a fast growing company
  • It’s great if you’ve worked on lending products or other business banking products, but it’s not essential
  • You’re passionate about building great products for customers, but you also deeply understand what makes your products succeed commercially
  • You start from first principles. You’ve previously built products that tackled long standing customer problems in a new way, or otherwise broke from the industry status quo. You’re not satisfied to simply build the same product your competitors offer.
  • You’re data driven, passionate about metrics, and intellectually honest about how your work is performing -- and driven to continuously improve it.
  • You’re full of novel ideas and creative solutions, and able to tease them out of others too.
  • You’re comfortable spanning the worlds of design, data, user research, marketing and engineering.
  • You can work effectively with a diverse range of people and working styles to get stuff done, and are able to thoughtfully and constructively challenge and influence the people you work with.
  • You have the ability to communicate clearly and persuasively to a wide range of audiences, and in a structured way.
  • You’re a fast learner, humble and curious, and enjoy developing yourself and others.
  • What we’re doing here at Monzo excites you!

  • Recruiter Call
