Product Lead, Catalog
We are looking for a Product Lead to join our Retail team! This role can be based in one of our tech hubs in Helsinki or Berlin, or you can work remotely anywhere in Finland, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, and Estonia. Read more about our remote setup here. 🌍
1,5 years ago we started expanding our delivery offering to new verticals beyond restaurant deliveries, including for example grocery, pharmacy, merchandise, flowers and apparel, all referred to as “Retail”. Now we are looking for a Product Lead to work directly with our engineering team and product management organization, to build products for the future. 🚀 Now, retail is key part of our business and it makes already about 10% of Wolt’s business. The retail product team is a group of 30+ people (and growing fast!), including 3 product management professionals as well as data, design, and engineering people. We are based in Helsinki HQ, as well as working remotely in Tallinn, Berlin and Sweden.
The Retail teams at Wolt work with several products and systems across both consumer and merchant domains. We’re responsible for providing a world class retail shopping experience in our consumer apps, allowing our customers to easily discover, browse and buy products on Wolt. For our retail partners, we build products and tooling to help them onboarding smoothly, manage their assortment on Wolt and keep their in-store operations running efficiently. This will require seamless cross-team collaboration between our consumer-facing product teams, central & local retail teams as well as with operational stakeholders.
As a Product Lead, you will work with a cross-functional team of engineering, design, data, and analytics in a high visibility role. You will be responsible for defining the roadmap, prioritization, and setting the vision for the team. This is an IC role, which involves leading strategic product initiatives and projects across the entire product lifecycle, partnering with business and operational stakeholders as well as understanding and analyzing our end-users. Your home base would be our product management department but you will be working on a daily basis with the Retail team, ensuring that Wolt’s Retail business grows successfully.
Our humble expectations
You could come to this role from a multitude of different backgrounds, but ideally, you have
Plenty of previous experience in the product management domain - you know what it takes to develop a great product that the consumers genuinely love
Desire to be in a high-ownership role. You need to be comfortable with both getting your hands dirty as well as driving cross-team projects outside of your domain
A mixture of data analysis skills, engineering understanding and business savvy with a go-getter attitude
Having exposure on both qualitative and quantitative data, and being familiar with leveraging data to inform product strategy and decisions
Expertise in how to work with and coach cross-functional teams, at least with designers, data experts, and with engineering teams
Experience with consumer-facing products in addition to Retail domain knowledge would be a cherry on top for us, but not mandatory for you to become a successful Product Lead
It may sound like we are looking for a unicorn (which we probably are), but we believe in unicorns - we are looking for the perfect fit to support us in taking our product to the next level. If you think you might be the one, we are hoping to hear from you!
Our offering to you
As a Product Lead, Retail you get to be a part of building the future of Wolt. As we expand beyond food deliveries, you get to play an essential role in solving various new challenges compared to the environment where we’re used to operating in. You will have a direct impact on how we evolve the consumer and merchant experience, and how we can unlock new strategic verticals for our retail business.
Overall our product consists of a team of 400 people at Wolt and 40 product management experts. We aim to build no other than the best-in-the-world product management team at Wolt.
You would get to work in a company culture where we take ownership beyond the obvious, do common things uncommonly well, we think big but stay humble, do right by people, we treat others kindly and justly, recognise that if we don’t learn, we won’t stay still but fall behind and keep in mind that Luke was Yoda’s greatest achievement. Read more about how we work. You can also find more information about how Wolt Product and Engineering works in our VP Engineering Niilo’s blog!
The compensation is a combination of monthly pay and DoorDash stock options. The latter makes it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie.
If you’re not already based in Finland, we can also help you with relocation!
If the advertised role looks like an exciting challenge - the right time to apply is now! 😊
