How does Monzo keep 1,600 microservices spinning? Go, clean code, and a strong team

Re: You don't need to know how 1,600 services work

Exactly.

While each micro-service may be simple, all that has happened is the complexity has been pushed up to the interactions between those micro-services (to some form or orchestration layer).

Maybe that allows Monzo to, at least now, to more easily manage that complexity. Or maybe having a greenfield development has just avoided the legacy complexity because Moizo don't have that much IT history.

Only time will tell.
