Internal slack messages from UK challenger bank Monzo, seen by Business Insider, show the startup is ending a pay freeze brought in during the coronavirus pandemic.
The pay freeze will end on September 1.
Monzo did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The message notes that despite the unfreezing, "we are not yet fully out of the woods yet."
Monzo went through a down round of funding in June and laid off around 80 staff the same month.
The startup bank has since launched a premium service called Monzo Plus in a bid to diversify its revenue streams.
Monzo, founded in 2015, offers current accounts to more than 4 million customers. It provides a number of financial services to consumers, ranging from current accounts to saving pots and access to loans. The startup has predominantly relied on the wild popularity of its "hot coral" debit cards and easy-to-use app to win new customers, over conventional marketing.
As the coronavirus crisis deepened, executives agreed to take a variety of paycuts until 2021 and their situation is unchanged, Business Insider understands.
Monzo reported last week that its revenues doubled to £90 million ($118 million) in 2019 — but its losses ballooned to £115.4 million ($151 million), twice that of 2018. The company has warned that the pandemic is a threat to its business.
The challenger bank's cofounder Tom Blomfield moved from CEO to president earlier this year and took a 100% salary reduction as part of the company's coronavirus measures.
Blomfield's old job has been taken up by TS Anil, the Visa veteran who joined Monzo as US CEO in February.
Other executive changes in 2020 include the departure of CTO Meri Williams, while former Deliveroo CTO and Blossom Capital VC Mike Hudack joined as chief product officer. Sujata Bhatia, a former American Express executive in Europe was brought in as new COO. The start of the year also saw Monzo cofounder Paul Rippon leave the company to spend his time farming alpacas.
Early employee and VP of marketing Tristan Thomas is also leaving the fintech, TechCrunch reported. SEE ALSO: Buzzy challenger bank unicorn Monzo doubled losses in 2019 despite higher revenues, says COVID-19 pandemic is major threat

SupportLogic, the San Jose-based startup trying to revolutionize customer service through AI, just raised $12 million in a Series A funding round backed by Sorenson Ventures and Sierra Ventures.
The firm promises clients the "world's first intelligent support platform," using AI and natural language processing to extract useful data from their online ticketing systems. This can reduce churn, prevent complaint escalations, and help companies better understand customers' needs, SupportLogic claims.
SupportLogic says it has helped clients reduce operational costs by 35%, reduce escalations by up to 40%, and sped up the rate of customer queries being resolved by 25%.
"Support datasets contain valuable insights about how customers feel about [companies'] products," said Krishna Raj Raja, founder and CEO of SupportLogic. "It's critical to extract signals from this dataset and foster collaboration between support, sales, customer success, and product teams."
Ken Elefant, managing partner at Sorenson, which led the round, said that the rise of subscription services means "churn and customer retention is a top priority for organizations."
"SupportLogic's unique approach to this space and the technology they have built to extract signals from existing systems really excited us," he said.
The customer experience industry is predicted to be worth close to $15 billion globally by 2025, according to research from analysts at Markets and Markets. Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: How waste is dealt with on the world's largest cruise ship
