At Monzo, we’re building a new kind of bank. One that lives on your smartphone, and that’s built for the way we live today. By solving your problems, treating you fairly and being totally transparent, we believe that we can make banking better.
Since we started in February 2015, we’ve been busy building the best current account in the world. We received our full UK banking licence from the FCA and PRA in April 2017, and are now working hard to roll current accounts out to everyone in the UK. Download the app today to join the 400,000 customers using our hot coral cards to manage their money and spend around the world.
At Monzo, you'll get to work with industry standard tools and technologies - and help us define what great looks like for Android engineers.
Our app is almost 100% Kotlin, mostly built using MVP (Model View Presenter), though we are currently transitioning to MVVM (Model View ViewModel). We've started to use Coordinators to help use re-use screens where we can. Our app is modularised by product feature.
We use RxJava heavily, Retrofit and Moshi for API calls and Dagger for dependency injection. We use Realm and Room for persistence, and Repositories for interacting with them.
We use GitHub Pull Requests to do code reviews, and write unit tests for our Presenters, ViewModels and any other classes which contain logic. We Espresso for UI tests, which we run on Firebase Test Lab via CircleCI.
What you'll be doing
As an Android engineer at Monzo you'll work in a small, autonomous product squad alongside iOS Engineers, Backend Engineers, User Researchers, Product Designers, Product Managers and QA Testers, and Business Analysts.
Your mission will depend on the squad, but currently mobile engineers are working on customer growth, revenue, lending products, business banking and internal operations. We also have a small squad dedicated to enabling other mobile engineers to move faster.
You and your team will be responsible for an overall company goal, rather than building a specific feature - you'll have the opportunity to have impact on both what we build, and how we build it.
Every week we meet as a discipline to discuss tools, techniques, problems we're encountering across the company and work together to improve our codebase and processes.
You'll report to an engineering manager, and we have specific managers who have a background in mobile engineering. Your manager will meet with you every 2 weeks 1:1, and their mission is to help you develop and grow as an engineer.
We're looking for Android engineers with strong product sensibilities. You'll care about the impact your work has on our customers, and optimise for impact rather than the number of lines of code you output.
