Senior Data Engineer, Core ML & Data Engineering

Remote or Helsinki, Finland

Our Core Machine Learning & Data Engineering team is looking for Senior Data Engineer to join them! 

Wolt is a heavily data-run company which means that we collect data from all areas of the business, in a timely and accurate manner, and want our data to be available for consumption by everyone in the company. Our Core ML & Data Engineering team is the one making this magic happen! 

The team builds high-quality and scalable data infrastructure and tooling and owns the company's core data logistics, as well as the central data processing and analysis infrastructure. As our data volumes keep on growing our tools need to be scalable and robust to support this. Each team member has ownership of a certain tool and envisions for its future - is the tool serving its purpose and how should it function in the future? The development work is done together inside the team, one sprint at a time. 

The team has also identified the direction they want to take in the future and e.g. data mesh architecture, data catalogs, geo-replication, stream processing and automatic data quality monitoring will be in their focus. Sound like challenges you’d also want to be working with? 

The team is based in Helsinki HQ but welcomes a new member to the Helsinki HQ or working entirely remotely elsewhere in Finland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden or Estonia now and in the future! 

Our humble expectations

At Wolt data engineering is strongly connected to backend development, so you should have experience in software engineering, Python specifically, as our data platform is built with it. You know your way around databases (Postgres, Snowflake) as well as data warehousing and data streaming (Kafka). The focus in this role will be on developing data infrastructure and tooling, so that’s where your interests should lie as well. 

We are looking for experience, as you should be able to contribute your visions to developing our tools further. Moreover, if you are a self-driven team player with good communication skills you will thrive in this role. In return, we can offer an environment where you get to develop something unique, that isn’t available in the market, responding to the ever-growing need for scalability. You could also be a backend engineer looking to expand your horizons to data engineering.

Next steps

The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so please apply quickly! The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and Wolt stock options. The latter makes it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie. 

Any further questions about the position? Ask our Product Talent Acquisition Partner, Jasmin Shams, at at any given time.
