Talk details

Building Monzo's payments, what I learned about the role of design

Monzo has both its own payment network for instant payments and is part of the payment network all UK banks use. Creating a payment experience that protects people, gets out of their way when they need and brings excitement where appropriate is a difficult but worthy adventure. Especially for a regulated bank with 9 million customers in the UK (and rapidly growing). 

This talk is for you if you want to hear about the realities of innovating in a regulated fintech, the ups, downs and the unforeseen moments of dread and joy. How to keep sane through the rollercoaster of product strategy and development — while remaining focused on the bigger picture. With profound reflections of what it means to be a product designer in 2024.
