Backend Engineer, Merchant Integrations
There would be no Wolt, without the restaurants and retailers. We live in symbiosis, and we are dedicated to serving our merchants in the best possible way - in the best cases, we've multiplied the revenue of our merchants and improved their market reach. We currently have more than 27,000 restaurants on Wolt, but that number is growing FAST, so it's more important than ever to develop our merchant facing products.
As a Backend Engineer in the Merchant Integrations team, you'll be making sure our merchant partners can benefit from their cooperation with Wolt even more. The team has been building custom integrations to major franchises, but we’re now getting ready for the 2nd phase of building open API’s to enable more of our merchant partners to reap the benefits. You will be building new APIs, allowing merchants to integrate into our system. These are not only restaurants but also big chains such as supermarkets - in terms of business scope we’re talking about a large scale. The work is extremely impactful, and also includes direct communication with several stakeholders. Instead of firefighting, you will mostly be building new solutions in our small, autonomous team.
Our humble expectations
Do you have a background in designing and building top-class systems at scale? - Great! You might be the one we are looking for. Our codebase is a mixture of Python and Kotlin, but as we’re moving more and more towards the latter, we hope you have experience or enthusiasm to work with Kotlin especially. Python experience will also come in handy. Other relevant technologies are MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and our environment is AWS.
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.
