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 200 cities across EMEA.

We've started our operations in Japan in spring 2020 and fast forward today operate in over 25 cities. While we’ve already established a local Talent Acquisition function in Japan to complement our hubs in Helsinki and Copenhagen, our continued expansion plans means that we now need additional firepower in order to help us meet our targets.
