Warsaw, Poland
People & Talent

Are you an experienced HR leader in Poland with a genuine interest in high growth companies? Are you excited at the prospect of building and scaling a local HR function and team HR and Talent Development in a truly global tech organization? If this sounds like you, then we’d love to chat!

Role background

Wolt is a Finnish technology company founded in 2014 with a mission to transform the way people can order food from restaurants. Wolt has since grown rapidly and become a global company, currently operating in 23 countries and over 180 cities across EMEA, servicing 15M registered users. In Poland alone we’re now an organisation of around 100 dedicated Wolters - and we’re still only just getting started.

The People team at Wolt currently consists of about 80 HR and Talent Acquisition professionals located in Helsinki, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tel-Aviv, Tbilisi, Budapest and Tokyo. To reach our next exciting stage growth plans, we are now expanding our People team and looking for an experienced HR professional to build our HR operation in Poland.

As our HR Lead Poland you will have holistic ownership of our HR operations at our Polish office. We’ve been providing HR support to our Polish team remotely from Finland, so as our first dedicated HR hire in Poland your central focus will be to quickly audit and build on the core HR foundations that are already in place and take our HR proposition to the next level, with a laser-like focus on building a “best in the world HR” function. You’ll do that against the backdrop of rapid expansion in Poland, both in our core business and our newly-launched vertical, Wolt Market.

You will ideally have a strong generalist HR background with broad experience across the HR spectrum, but particularly HR operations and business HR. Ideally you will have either led an HR function in Poland or worked as a senior HR Business Partner. Team leadership experience and a genuine passion for the employee experience are essential.
To succeed as our HR Lead Poland you will need to have a “builder” mindset and be driven to work under your own initiative. You need to be completely comfortable rolling up your sleeves, getting stuck in and really driving HR from the front! 


  • Designing and executing on country-level HR strategy for our Poland operation. 
  • Collaborating and sparring with local leadership to define tactical and strategic ways to address short and long term challenges.
  • Rolling your sleeves up to deliver day-to-day life cycle support, from onboarding to offboarding and on all HR and people-related matters in between.
  • Maintaining employee and payroll data, predominantly in Workday, and ensuring that accurate monthly payroll input data is produced on time.
  • Driving a positive employee relations culture  
  • Owning all HR policies and practices in Poland, ensuring they are fit for our hyper-growth and have extreme scalability built into them.  
  • Implementing additional HR programs and policies, including those relating to organisational design, compensation, benefits, leadership development, relocation and mobility, employee relations, and training, with our HR centres of expertise. 
  • Ensuring general HR compliance in Poland, and managing employee relations cases. 
  • Local HR vendor management. 

Our humble expectations

  • A solid generalist HR background and multi-year experience leading an HR organisation, focusing especially on the Polish market.  
  • Strong knowledge of the Poland legal landscape and statutory requirements when it comes to employment legislation, payroll and statutory reporting and preferably also knowledge of collective bargaining agreements.
  • Team leadership experience, with the “know how” to build and nurture a team, and develop effective ways-of-working.
  • Strong communication skills, with full working fluency in English. 
  • A problem-solving and can-do attitude combined with networking skills, assertiveness and the willingness to take initiative.
  • You work well in a team, and are completely comfortable collaborating remotely and dynamically using digital tools such as Slack and Zoom.

We've also been fortunate enough to receive some appreciation and recognition for our hard work along the way: Apple selected Wolt’s app as their Editors' Choice, Wired named the company one of the "Hottest Startups in Europe," Forbes included our CEO Miki Kuusi on its 30-under-30 in Consumer Tech list, and the Nordic Startup Awards named Wolt Company of the Year.
