The amazing @emmag explains why our engineers spend some time each month working on other projects. And, together with @kavi and @james, she shares the stories of some of the features that started life during Monzo Time!
There are some neat ideas here. I’m very curious about drunk mode
I wish more companies would do this ️
I prefer my half day Fridays!
We don’t get anything like that unfair…
Work somewhere else
PS: we’re hiring
This is such a great idea! Love seeing how ideas are constantly being looked at and collaborated on + reprioritised based on feedback. I think it’s definitely something more companies should do
Eugh working at a legacy bank, I don’t get any of this.
We use open source software in so much of our work, but management won’t give us time to contribute back.
“Ability to block certain merchants without pausing card”. Absolutely all over this! When my card was cloned all the transaction were attempted via the same merchant, I really needed to use my card so I would periodically un-pause my card to use it (risky!).
I like the idea of bringing up banks logo when entering thier sort codes
I think this is already in - at least when I set up a standing order last week I got the banks logo for it.
The Android ticket on the left column seems like a process smell, somehow rushing a non functional requirement through the free project time. I’d wonder why it wasn’t on the official android roadmap - I’d guess it is the lack of external visibility for customers.
I can confirm it is. I noticed it yesterday. Nice little addition
Reads to me like a developer quality of life/ease of debugging change that isn’t necessary but would be nice to have from their point of view.
