Role Background

Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. We have launched our services in Japan in the spring of 2020, and have since been conquering the food delivery scene step by step. We are growing rapidly and are now looking for an Operations Manager to join our Operations team.

As an Operations Manager at Wolt, you are the person responsible for the courier partner operation in your region. This means you are ultimately responsible for every order being a successful one. This is equally a hands-on and strategic role as you will be onboarding, training and maintaining a healthy community of first dozens, then hundreds of motivated and happy courier partners. You also need to build and maintain a solid internal support operation, both for our courier partners as well as our customers. All of this requires both people leadership and analytical skills, getting your hands dirty and working well together with your General Manager as well as the rest of your country team. As delivery is a big part of the operations you will also have a substantial P&L responsibility.

In this role, you’ll get a lot of help and support on the way, but are also expected to be an amazing independent manager with an exceptional ability to execute every single day.

What you'll do:

  • Build the operations team in your region
  • Work closely with the General Manager on developing the local business strategy and launching business development initiatives
  • Setup and manage the food-delivery service by ensuring a kind, professional and thought-through user experience, all the way from our restaurant partners by our courier partners to our hungry customers
  • Continuously improve delivery efficiency and KPIs
  • Create and improve business processes that drive the operation towards efficiency and profitability, while allowing the business to scale
  • Make sound and critical business decisions based on the vast amount of data that our platform provides us with
  • Onboard, retain and grow the number of courier partners
  • Plan the supply of couriers for your city/cities and develop attractive schedules and earning models for courier partners

Our humble expectations

  • An energetic and resilient spirit is the soul to our culture, where you are constantly on your toes and seeking ways to build your region
  • You probably have a background in operations management, consulting, modern logistics or business development from a high growth company
  • You have solid experience with strategy and business development and an analytical mindset
  • You have experience with managing a team
  • You have at least a Bachelor in Finance, Economics or equivalent
