Backend Developer, Retail (new verticals)
Wolt is looking for a Backend developer to strengthen our Retail team. In this role you will be enabling Wolt to reach new heights and expand into new verticals beyond restaurant food delivery, by building new tools and systems across the consumer and merchant domain. Our core business has been strongly focused on the restaurant, and we’ve recently started leveraging our amazing tech and courier partners to deliver much more than restaurant food to make our customers' lives better.
The retail team currently consists of product lead, engineers and a designer. You’ll be getting your hands on systems done by plenty of other Wolt teams and collaborate and learn from them while refactoring and repurposing the code for Retail needs. You’ll also be focusing on building new exciting things from scratch with your team.
Our humble expectations
You are comfortable with either Python or Scala for backend. You get plus points for knowing your way around MongoDB, PostgreSQL and AWS. We expect you to be a good communicator, willing to collaborate with people outside of your own team, be product oriented and a proactive problem solver willing to bring up issues in a constructive manner to the team and the Wolt Product+ team at large.
If you can work with React on the frontend side you also get some plus points.
Join us for a delightful journey!
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 Product Talent Acquisition Partner, Petteri Tuomimaa, 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 100 cities, servicing over 7 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!
