Hello Monzo Community!
As you’ve probably figured out already by the title, I’m now a Monzonaut
It all happened so quickly! I applied mid-April, completed a take-home task and then went to interview in Cardiff for a few hours (the interview flew past, I was amazed). I received a job offer the next day asking for a May 6th start so I handed my notice in the next day and began working on my handover I left work on Friday and moved to Monzo today (though, it was probably yesterday by the time I send this out )
Monzo have been lovely from step 1 onwards!!! I’m currently in my COp training phase so you won’t see me in your chat just yet but the training plan sounds fantastic, I really look forward to learning all there is to learn.
Turns out I don’t know a single interesting fact about myself but, as I found out later, being CoralCrew, being in a Monzo Ad & being in the Beta/PrePaid card era is quite impressive I’m certainly in a lucky position here I’ve shared a whole host of Slack & Mac tips with my fellow intake as well as surprising some folks with weird & obscure Monzo knowledge
I’m sure there are those of you wondering, already, what happens to Nexusmaniac! I am too
I will no longer be part of the Coral Crew such an incredibly short lived career in the positively delightful CC! I will still be here on the forum though, just with a instead of a 4
Don’t think I’ve forgotten about Sneak Peaks, App Updates & Teardowns though I still want to be as dedicated a Monzo user as ever but I will have to discuss my future teardowns in depth with Monzo I had already signed my contract by the time
2.46.0 had arrived :grimace: so I didn’t want to risk doing a teardown - I’ve also got access to a few more features than I had before so I’m going to have to be very careful OR get another device OR un-staff-ify my Monzo app going forward everything will be clearer though however in the short term I shan’t be risking any teardowns. Monzo is incredibly transparent but it’s no longer an avid user digging into the app and sharing things, it’s a Monzo staff member sharing things that not every user has access to and if I were to mess up and share ‘some feature from some internal release’ accidentally then I’d be in a bit of bother
tl;dr I’m a Monzo COp. Teardowns should return. I’m no longer CC but I can still do CC things. I’m still going to be the @Nexusmanaic you remember but doing a job I’ll truly love and, potentially, being on the other end of your Monzo chat some day - ready to lend a helping hand!
I’d love to answer and questions you have about anything in the meantime so fire away in the thread below
