– Startup of London Team
As a Data Scientist, you’ll be working in an ever-changing environment where we are building and iterating on our financial crime defence capabilities to ensure we keep Monzo and our customers safe. As a financial crime team we have a large impact on Monzo’s bottom line as fraud and scams are usually some of the largest cost line items in a bank’s P&L. In addition, we have a great influence on the overall customer experience, and it’s our duty to keep them safe. Most of the work we do results in directly measurable customer or company benefits which is incredibly satisfying.
Our Data Scientists don’t have a permanent assignment to a problem space and might rotate into different financial crime areas after some time. The major problem spaces that we are working in are our fraud prevention, transaction monitoring for different types of suspicious activity, customer risk assessment, and operational tooling to name the biggest ones. At the moment we are about 21 people in financial crime data, including Analytics Engineers, Data Analysts, Machine Learning Engineers, and Data Scientists.
As part of your job, you’ll work closely with product managers, engineers, designers, and researchers in an agile product environment. You’ll champion the use of data, and bring ideas to life through rigorous experimentation and A/B testing. You’ll help us get the most out of large volumes of data stored on a modern cloud-native data platform and with spotting opportunities to make each area of financial crime work even better for our users and for Monzo.
Our culture is open and focused on collaboration between different functions and individuals. It is fast-paced and innovative and we try to push the boundaries of the current financial industry best practices. We put a lot of emphasis on feedback (up, side, and downwards) and personal growth and development.
Our interview process involves three main stages:
Our average process takes around 2-3 weeks but we will always work around your availability.
You will have the chance to speak to our recruitment team at various points during your process but if you
do have any specific questions or want to talk through reasonable adjustments ahead of or during application please us at any point at email@example.com
We can help you relocate to the UK
We can sponsor visas
This role can be based in our London office, but we’re open to distributed working within the UK (with ad hoc meetings in London).
We offer flexible working hours and trust you to work enough hours to do your job well, at times that suit you and your team.
Learning budget of £1,000 a year for books, training courses, and conferences
If you prefer to work part-time, we’ll make this happen whenever we can – whether to help you meet other commitments or strike a great work-life balance.
