Head of Product
Monolith Leadership
🗓
2020-12-30
Hi, we’re Monolith. We provide everything one would expect from a financial platform, built using decentralised technology. There’s a wallet to securely store assets, a payment card that can be used online or in shops and a mobile app to make everything accessible to regular users.

We believe in self-sovereignty: we don’t control our user’s assets. Monolith is amongst the first practical authentic use-cases on the Ethereum blockchain.

We’re a high-performance team of around 25 people. Most of us are based around London, but we also have colleagues in mainland Europe. We have freedom and responsibility, a culture that encourages original thinking, offers ownership and embraces knowledge sharing. We have big plans to grow!

Due to the pandemic we’re working entirely remotely. When it’s safe to do so we’re looking forward to folks collaborating in person again — but remote is totally cool too!

We are looking for a Head of Product to take our DeFi banking experience to the next level by driving how we understand our customers and how we design and deliver the future of consumer banking.
