Today I felt like making a pie chart. So I did. What fun.
That’s a visual representation, in pie format, of all Q&As done to date. And for those who say the numbers don’t match the numbers of weeks, I say, well spotted, you absolute fine specimens of human beings. A keen eye for detail! That’s because the Vulnerable Customers team sit within COps and we did a team Q&A just 2 weeks ago!
Here at Monzo we like data. Almost as much as we like people. Maybe more. Depends who you talk to. Some people really love data But the data here shows that we are still lacking certain team categories. I’m making it my mission to fix that!
So the word of the day is…S E C U R I T Y !
Please welcome, to the Hot Coral Hot Seat™️ the one and only Daniel Chatfield - Backend Engineer on our Fincrime & Security Team!

Fun Fact about Daniel : There’s two public CVE’s attributed to his name!
Get your questions in, folks! Daniel will be here later in the week to answer them!
