New Joiners at Monzo HQ


(Zainab Khan) #1

You might have seen some new faces popping up on the forum, on #monzostories or at :monzo: events… I thought it would be helpful to get every new joiner to come say :wave: here!

They can tell you a little about themselves, what they were doing before, where they’re from, what they do at Monzo and what their first week has been like.

I have asked anyone who joined in the last few months to drop by and say hey, but first up, we have Beth, who joined us this week…

I know you guys will be nice + welcoming as always :heart:

Excuse me, whilst I go get Beth to sign up to the forum :joy:

Hello Monzo Community!! :wave: :mondo:

My name is Beth and I’m the new Hiring Coordinator at Monzo!

You could probably have guessed I’m not joining Monzo as a technical genius as it’s taken over 18 hours to work out how to reply on this forum and add emojis! :clap:

About me:
I’m originally from Manchester and moved to London two years ago after graduating from Sheffield University in Philosophy! :mortar_board:

Before Monzo:
I’ve been working as a Recruitment Consultant for two years specialising in Digital Transformation and Business Change.

What I’m doing at Monzo:
Everything hiring related! I’ll be searching for exceptional talent to join us on our journey towards building the best possible bank! :+1:

My first week at Monzo:
Highlights…

  • Hanging out with the Monzo family (they’re all so lovely!)
  • Yoga in the office :pray:
  • Getting a mention in the weekly meeting! I was awarded my first smiley! :grinning:

Hi Micsway,

Great to hear you are interested in working with us! We have a mailing list on our careers page so you can keep up to date with new roles!


(Alex Sherwood) #5

Is the mailing list working yet? I’ve noticed several roles were added within the past week or so but I didn’t receive an email :grimacing:

@alexs next one will come out on Monday :soon:


(Mike) #7

Soon everyone will want to work for Monzo :stuck_out_tongue: - or they should do anyway!
I’m curious to know how flexible the roles are - e.g. can you work as both part of the backend engineering and android development teams?

:wave: :wink:

Hey, I don’t think I need too much of an introduction to the community here but I’m excited to announce that I’m in the process of joining the Night COps team. :tada:

Spending this week and the next in the office going through all of the training, then I’ll be back on the community. :raised_hands:
