We’re growing fast and committed to providing world-class support - we recently built our own customer support software (Monzo Chat) from scratch as part of a strategy to build a whole portfolio of bespoke products so there is plenty of room to innovate, influence across multiple disciplines and shape our future.

Customer Operations is leading the way at Monzo in the use of data science/machine learning and we are ambitious to keep shipping products fast so it's important that you are up for the challenge and are comfortable working at pace.

  • Lead and coach Product Managers to run effective teams that ship stuff which customers really value
  • Support your team to set clear goals and key results, regularly check in on progress, learn and adjust course when needed
  • Help your teams to set hypotheses, test riskiest assumptions and break down complex problems into small steps
  • Build a product management profession as great as our product. You’ll lead and develop 3-5 product managers, and make sure we hire and grow the team as fast as we need to
  • Reduce dependencies, remove blockers and co-ordinate with other product groups and stakeholders
  • Contribute to product management practices: help us ship delightful products and be an exceptional place to work

  • You've directly managed product managers and are passionate about developing people and supporting them to be part of high-performing teams.
  • You have an empathetic leadership style and you build strong, effective relationships.
  • You know when to employ different approaches to product management, and can balance lean-style MVP experimental work with focused iteration.
