Role Background

Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. Just 3 years ago, Wolt operated in 4 countries and 10 cities across the Nordics. Fast forward to today, we’re in 23 countries and over 210+ cities, servicing over 15M registered users. In the last year, we've expanded our platform beyond food delivery into categories such as cosmetics, flowers, toys, electronics, books and even running our own grocery stores called Wolt Market which is a rapidly expanding new part of our business. Our vision is to offer everything our customers need, to their door, in 30min or less.
As the platform economy is changing the ways consumers connect with restaurants and retailers, we are seeing a huge opportunity to be the industry leader with the amazing teams we have built globally. Wolt’s legal team has been an integral part throughout this journey by consistently being at the forefront of building and scaling legal and compliance operations in all of Wolt’s markets. Currently, we are looking for a Legal Counsel to join the team at our HQ in Helsinki. In this role, you will be working on various corporate, technology and business legal related matters. You will also be allocated certain responsibility areas and projects crucial for Wolt’s global scalability that you will take ownership of. 

What you'll be doing:

  • Taking ownership of our subsidiary management and bringing it to the next level
  • Drafting of corporate documents and policies
  • Taking ownership of our consumer User Terms and Conditions, including managing and updating the terms globally

  • Coordinating legal advice with local external law firms
  • Supporting other legal tasks as needed. 

We’re looking for someone who has the ability to tackle a number of complicated legal issues, but also someone who understands the Wolt way of doing things; a problem-solver with an entrepreneurial mindset and a solutions-driven business-enabler. Our ideal candidate is a team player who is happy to handle a variety of tasks, take ownership, and also to support other team members.  We hope you are truly eager to work with your responsibility areas and want to develop as a legal professional in corporate and business legal related matters. 
In a fast-paced business environment, being flexible and open for change, dynamic and proactively getting things done is crucial. We also appreciate quick thinking and a can-do attitude of rolling up one's sleeves and getting to work, no matter the task.
