Photography Lead

Berlin, Germany

Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. We’ve grown rapidly in the past few years - after launching our service in Finland in 2015, we’ve expanded to operate in 23 countries across Europe and Asia! Currently, we have more than 65.000 restaurant and retail partners on board.

We launched our service in Germany in August 2020 and have for the past year seen a rapid development in the market. We are now working with several thousand restaurant partners across Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Cologne, Hanover, Düsseldorf, Hamburg & Essen and are expanding further into new cities, regions and business verticals.

We are thus looking for a Photography Lead to take us to the next level when it comes to building our footprint across Germany and developing our high photo standards that will drive strong customer retention. In its simplicity this means managing and refining different operating processes (for photo shoots and post-production) for the team across Germany at scale and making sure we provide restaurants with the best possible onboarding experience. Hence building the organization and leading the photography team, as well as optimize processes and workflows and manage new projects in cooperation with other stakeholders to improve efficiency.

This is a cross functional role that requires strong organisational, process-optimizing and project management acumen as well as people leadership to succeed. We are looking for a hands-on person that is excited about diving into the business and helping the internal & external photo team to keep up with our ambitious growth targets. The Photography Lead will be a core part of the restaurant onboarding team in Germany and expected to take an ownership mentality of the entire German photography operation.
