It’s officially our 40th Staff Q&A!!!
That’s more or less how many people were in the entire company 2 years ago. Madness!
In customer number news…
We’re well on our way towards 1.1million, awww yesssssss.
Yesterday we invited some of you folks to join us at the Monzo office for and Google-ness. Beer was drank, pizza was eaten, and new Pixels were announced. It was a super happy awesome fun time
Tomorrow, we’ll be taking over the Cosy Club bar in Birmingham, there’s free drinks on the house and there’s gonna be Monzo stickers too.
Before we get into this week’s Q&A… you know what time it is!

This week in the Hot Coral Hot Seat™️ we have the OG Night COp himself, the legend that is George Webster!
George has been here since September 2016 and when I asked him what he was currently working on, he told me:
Answering everything our Monzo community can throw at me!
perhaps jumping the gun a little bit there George
But you heard the man. Ask him ANYTHING. Literally ANYTHING
Similar to my own journey, George started here two years ago when the company was pretty small as part of our first group of night-time UK workers, and has seen the company grow from the tiny startup we were back then to where we are now, working closely with folks like myself and Dillon. He also was part of the team that came to Vegas to help train and immerse our Vegas team into the amazing culture we have here at Monzo.
Aside from Monzo, George is an actor! (can you tell from the photo?) and generally an all around awesome guy.
I asked George for an interesting fact about himself, and he told me :
I have gout and I am 25 years of age.
That sounds painful
His favorite thing about working at Monzo?
Expanding my mind every day. Learning something new I never thought I would be remotely interested in!
So there we have it folks! Get your questions in, George will come and answer them later this week!
