Backend Engineer, Localisation
Wolt is looking for a Backend Engineer to join our brand new Localisation team, this is a new spin-off team from our existing Fintech and Payments teams. Wolt is an international operator, with 22 countries and over 80 cities of operations. This localization team is part of our financial services group, focusing on making sure we are meeting the local requirements for receipt and invoice compliance, taxation and business model to mention a few. The team works closely with our expansion, legal and finance teams to make sure our product is ready to conquer new markets. Sometimes that may also mean working with the other product teams, to make sure product isn't a blocker for new markets.
Our humble expectations
We've already hired the Team Lead & all the other engineers needed for the new team in addition to internal transfers, and we still want to bring you in to strengthen the team with your backend development skills. We have a payment flow written in Python but will start to build new services also in Kotlin, so skills in Python and JVM are highly beneficial for this role.
The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so make sure to apply as soon as you realize you really, really want to join us!
The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and Wolt stock options. The latter make it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie.
If you want to check up on your application or have any further questions about the position you can turn to Talent Acquisition Partner, Severi Kausola, at email@example.com at any given time.
Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. On our mobile app or website, customers can order their favorite meals from our restaurant partners, and either pick their order up or have it delivered by our courier partners.
We’re currently active in 23 countries and more than 90 cities, servicing over 5 million customers. Our apps (iOS and Android) have the industry’s highest reviews, largely because of our customer-centric approach to how we build our products and operations. For example, our customer service team responds in a matter of seconds, in the customer’s own language.
We’ve raised €258M in financing from renowned U.S. and European based investors, such as ICONIQ Capital, 83North, EQT Ventures, Highland Europe and Goldman Sachs Growth Equity. We've also been fortunate enough to receive some appreciation and recognition for our hard work along the way: Apple selected Wolt’s app as their Editors' Choice, Wired named the company one of the "Hottest Startups in Europe," Forbes included our CEO Miki Kuusi on its 30-under-30 in Consumer Tech list, and the Nordic Startup Awards named Wolt Company of the Year. In 2020 we were recognized as Europe’s most promising startup as part of Adyen and TNW‘s #Tech5 competition, and as the fastest growing tech company in Europe by the Financial Times.
Wolt is more than just a food delivery operation – in fact we are built upon a solid foundation of state-of-the-art technology. Our internal tooling enables us to ramp up new cities efficiently and provide excellent customer service, our own logistics platform allows us to optimise our couriers’ work to get you the food you want as fast as possible, and our restaurant platform allows restaurants to offer exciting food experiences for our customers in an optimal way.
We work in small teams with high ownership, with each team focusing on a key area of the Wolt product stack. Each and every one of our product team members has a say in where we are going and what solutions we implement. We work with a passion, but we haven’t forgotten how to have fun along the way!
