Product Lead, Logistics
We are looking for a Product Lead to join our Product Management organization, working directly with the Logistics team. This is one of those parts of Wolt's business, people don't always realize the complexity of. Logistics is absolutely integral to Wolt, and doing it well can mean the difference between delivering blissful customer experiences efficiently and profitably vs. operational nightmare and a cacophony of late deliveries. Our routing platform is fully automated, with our proprietary route optimization system finding the optimal route for each courier partner, hopping between restaurants and customers.
As a Product Lead, you'll help the Logistics team to focus on the most impactful things by roadmapping, prioritizing and planning for new features and products correctly (with customer experience and Wolt’s internal efficiency metrics in mind). This may sound like a very standard PM role, but rest assured, it's a lot more. The growth possibilities are endless and we are looking to indulge you with a lot of ownership and responsibility.
The Logistics team works on several backend service components for route optimization, traffic flow prediction, delivery time prediction and supply/demand control. Scala and C++ are used in the backend services whereas data analysis and machine learning is in Python. The team is a mix of developers, data scientists and optimization researchers.
Our humble expectations
You could come to this role from a multitude of different backgrounds, but ideally, you have
plenty of previous experience as a Product Manager / Lead or Engineering lead in a deep data science environment - you know what it takes to develop a great product
experience working with complex data projects - you understand for example how data & ML models are built and how to investigate different data problems
a mixture of data analysis skills, engineering understanding and business savvy with the go-getter attitude of a "could-be start-up CEO."
expertise in how to work with and coach cross-functional teams, at least with developers, data experts and with engineering teams
it’s a plus for you if you come from the logistics side since you would be inventing new ways we are doing logistics
It may sound like we are looking for a unicorn (which we probably are), but we believe in unicorns - we are looking for the perfect fit to support us taking our product to the next level. If you think you might be the one, we are hoping to hear from you!
