Head of Support

Japan, Japan

Do you have a proven track record in driving change and problem-solving? Are you a good mix of being able to think strategically and work hands-on? Are you a solid leader with experience in efficiently managing a high-performing team? If this sounds like you, we’d love to chat!

Role Background

Japan has the 3rd largest food delivery market in the world. We see an opportunity to build a winning business in the market by offering a world-class customer experience with short delivery time, fast & local customer service and reliability. 

We started from Hiroshima in March 2020, and have quickly expanded to Sapporo, Sendai and Tokyo now. This is just the beginning and we have ambitious plans for the Japan market.

As such, we are currently looking for our new Head of Support to set the direction and lead Japan’s whole Support organization! As part of the Wolt Japanese management team, you will work closely with our operation and restaurant teams to ensure we are delivering the ‘best in the world’ service on all fronts from our customers to our partners. In addition, you will spar with our Global Head of Support on any product or feature improvements.

This is a brand new role for us and we’re looking for someone to take our support organization to the next level. So, we are looking for someone with senior skills and junior enthusiasm.

What you will be doing

  • Strategize and execute: You will utilize our internal data tools to help you develop a sustainable strategy, then execute on it. Your focus will be on constant improvements and maintaining a high level of satisfaction from our customers and partners. 
  • Manage, mentor & motivate: As we grow you will build and manage several teams across multiple cities within the support organization. This includes acting as a sparring partner for the Customer Support Team Leads and helping them raise the bar in their teams.
  • Problem-solving: You will be both proactive and reactive with incoming and foreseen problems that may occur in support. You will influence a solution-oriented mindset and ensure we are always implementing best practices and ways of working. 
  • Driving performance: You will be a driving force to ensure we are delivering the best support to our customers and partners. Your analytical mindset will dig into our support metrics to make the best kind of decisions and set the right expectations. 
  • Scale smart: We will grow team-size, and in order to cope with demand while keeping up the quality, we need to do things smarter day by day.
  • Grow your organisation and support teams: You design the organisational setup that preps us for success. Also, you have a strong eye for talent as you will be hiring the right people to grow your support team.

Our humble expectations

  • You have a solid experience in leading big Technical Support Teams and/or similar organizations in a fast-phased environment.
  • You are looking forward to taking on a challenge to establish a completely new quality of Support in Japan - acting as an entrepreneur and a strategic problem solver and not being deterred by set-backs.
  • You are curious, committed and enjoy taking on full ownership. Therefore, you will naturally take the lead and orchestrate the necessary changes together with the rest of Wolt to reach KPIs and improve the offering we have for our customers.
  • You are very analytical, and make decisions based on data to the extent possible. And when you make decisions you always think about scalability.
  • You have an outgoing personality, where networking and building relationships are your second-nature. And naturally, you care about good customer service!
  • Complementary to your social skills, you are very structured and on top of things.
  • You are a true foodie with a constant hunger to learn and do things better.
  • You are fluent in Japanese and English.
