Role Background

Wolt is a Finnish technology company founded in 2014 best known for our food and retail delivery platform. We’ve grown significantly in the last few years and in 2020 the Financial Times named us Europe’s second-fastest growing company. Today, we operate in 23 countries across Europe and Asia – and we’re just getting started.

To reach our next exciting growth plans we are now expanding our People team and looking for an experienced HR technology professional to join our team.

As our HR Technology Lead you’d have an overall ownership of our HR solution, their development and support globally, in addition to leading our HR tech team. Our HR processes and practices have always been built in a way that we maximise the use of technology in our favor to achieve new levels of global scalability. We believe strongly that a modern HR organisation should scale with proper HR tech and automation in place, and thus we use solutions like Workday and Quinyx to help us achieve this. As our HR Technology Lead, you’d continue the path we are already on, but you’d take our HR tech practices to new heights as we continue our global expansion and growth.

  • Striving to constantly improve the way we do HR solution development, with the aim of being a benchmark on how we utilise, develop and maintain our HR tech. 
  • Together with our global payroll team, develop the integrations and interfaces towards our payroll providers
  • Maintain the solid relationship with our IT to support the ambition of “automation of everything”
  • Developing our HR reporting and analytics capabilities forwards, both natively in our HR solutions but also in our analytics tools. 
  • Overall, keeping the oversight of the HR technology project portfolio
  • Own the vendor relationships we have in our HR tech landscape, including both technology and AMS vendors.

Our humble expectations

  • You have a solid background and multi-year experience from leading HR Technology / HRIS teams. preferably in a truly global, multi-country environment.  
  • You're accustomed to working with modern SaaS HR platforms, experience in Workday and Quinyx seen as a strong advantage.  
  • You have experience in setting up practices for doing ongoing development for SaaS platforms with in-house teams. 
  • You have a strong architectural understanding of how to build modern HR tech landscapes and you have the ability to bring your vision to life. 
  • You’re not afraid to stick your hands to also doing configuration when needed. Overall, you’re a person who wants to lead from the front. 
  • You have the basic understanding of integration and automation technologies so that you can fluently talk with IT about various integration / automation needs.
