Careers at Monzo
At Monzo, we’re building a new kind of bank. One that lives on your smartphone and built for the way you live today.
We’re building the best bank in the world
A bank you'd be proud to use - and that means bringing together a talented team with diverse experiences, backgrounds and skills.
We believe there should be an alternative to the banking of the past: we're focused on solving problems, rather than selling financial products, making your financial life simpler, and giving you complete control from your smartphone.
Internally, we encourage an open, collaborative, inclusive working environment. We contribute to open source software, and we continually engage with our wonderful community. We’re hiring talented, creative problem-solvers to help us build the bank of the future. Join us!
We’re a growing, fast-paced team based in the heart of East London
Less than 5 minutes walk from Liverpool Street, we’re a team of just over 1600 people building a bank. We're taking care of everything from regulation, to app development, to card distribution, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where are your roles based?
We've got offices in London, Cardiff, and San Francisco but some people work remotely too. Each job description will say where the role is usually based, though we're big fans of flexible working!
Do you offer internships, work experience or placements?
Not right now. We're growing super fast and don't have the time we'd need to make it a great experience, but we'd love to in the future!
Do you keep past candidates' applications for future openings?
It's best to keep your eye on our jobs board and submit a new application for any roles which you’re interested in. Our system logs all the applications we get, so we can keep candidates in mind for other roles if they stand out.
Can I apply by email?
We don't accept email applications. If there's a role which interests you please submit an application via the relevant job description above 👆
Do you have a graduate scheme?
We don't run a graduate scheme at the moment but some of our roles can be a great fit for those just out of uni. Have a read through the job descriptions above to find out more 🎓
I saw a role recently but can't find it anymore, can I still apply?
If a role isn't on our website it means we're not accepting applications for the position anymore. We process applications on a rolling basis and encourage everyone to apply as soon as they can. We're growing super fast though, so sign up for our email updates to be the first to hear about new roles at Monzo.
Are you able to sponsor visas?
Yep, Monzo's a registered sponsor. But we can only sponsor visas for certain roles (like tech, engineering and product, for example) because of Home Office regulations.
I'm a recruiter, can we work together?
We're not looking for any recruitment support right now. We've got a big enough team to hire most of the roles we need. But we'll let you know if that changes!
