People of Monzo! It’s that time again. The time where I write hilarious introductions to a regular weekly thread! Soon, I will run out of clever and interesting ways to say basically the same thing - at that time, I will retreat into a Batcave-like structure, pen in hand, for a long night of brainstorming. It’s going to be epic, and there will be beer.
But for now, it’s time for the weekly Staff Q&A!
You know the rules. You need to catch up first!

This week in the hot coral hot seat, it’s our Head of People, Maria Campbell!!!
You may remember Maria’s awesome blog post last year about Diversity and Inclusion… I think we may have a follow up for 2018 soon We also held a live stream with Maria on the same topic, which you can read a transcript of here!
I asked Maria to define what she’s been working on recently, and her answer was perfect:
“Making Monzo the best place to work in the world!”
I also asked Maria for an interesting fact about herself, and she provided three!
“Here are three semi-interesting facts:
1. Half of the art in my flat is maps
2. I took a GCSE in astronomy when I was 14
3. For two years I only read books written by women.”
Maria’s favorite thing about working at Monzo?
“Working with talented, caring, committed people every day AND knowing I’m (indirectly) helping people have a better relationship with their money.”
OK folks, time for questions! Get them in and Maria will be here later in the week to answer them!
