About the FinCrime Team:

As a bank, Monzo is an appealing target for criminals who try to launder illegally gained funds through our accounts or fraudulently convince our customers to give them their money.   Our team works to prevent, identify, and fix instances of fraud and crime.  These capabilities are critical to Monzo’s business because they ensure legal compliance, improve customer experience, and enable us to grow safely.  

What you’ll be working on

Our team is split between Fraud and Financial Crime. This Group Product Manager role will support the Financial Crime efforts.  Specific responsibilities include:

  • Accountability for reducing the amount of financial crime on Monzo.  This is a board-level metric that is key to the success of our business.
  • Direct management of 3 Product Managers who each lead squads.  
  • Collaboration across the company (such as with Security & Operations collectives) as well as iteration on processes with cross functional stakeholders ranging from Engineering to Compliance.  
  • Establishing a strategic outlook on the FinCrime landscape and an innovative roadmap to develop industry leading solutions. 

Your day-to-day work will be constantly evolving and might include the following:

  • Challenging squads to develop new ML models to detect suspicious accounts or transactions
  • Collaborating with Data or Risk teams to understand emerging attack vectors
  • Working with PMs to improve their skills and share those insights with PMs across the company.

You should apply if:

  • You want to apply product skills to solve a meaningful business problem that involves technical and social challenges.  
  • You care deeply about the craft of product management and and have experience growing and developing a team of PMs
  • You have experience in a scale-up environment where things move quickly and you can balance commercial and technical skills.  
  • Experience with adversarial, fast paced problem spaces is a plus.  For example, experience with content moderation or advertising fraud might prepare you well for this type of work.  

Fraud or Financial Crime experience is not required.  We are looking for fresh thinking to solve challenges in non-traditional ways. 

The interview process:

Our interview process involves 4 main stages: 

  • Recruiter call 
  • Initial call with hiring manager
  • Experience Loop consisting of x3 interviews. This includes a Case Study, Project Walkthrough and a Values interview
