Product Lead, Retail
Wolt is in a phase of rapid growth. Last year, we started expanding our delivery offering into new verticals with a variety of deliverable goods. Some of these verticals include groceries, merchandise, flowers, and toys, all referred to as “Retail”. We are now looking for a Product Lead to join our Product Management organisation, working directly with one of our Retail engineering teams to build products for the future.
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.
As a Product Lead, you will work with a cross-functional team of design, engineering, data and analytics in a high visibility role. You will be responsible for defining the roadmap, prioritisation and setting the vision for one of our retail products domains. This is an IC role, which involves leading multiple projects and cross-team product initiatives across the entire product lifecycle, partnering with business and operational stakeholders to ensure Wolt’s Retail business grows successfully.
We welcome new members to the retail team to Helsinki HQ or, Stockholm, Sweden, or Berlin Germany now and in the future!
