Operations Manager

Frankfurt, Germany

Do you have a solid background in strategy and business development? Are you passionate about data-driven decisions? If this sounds like you, let's chat!

Role background

Since August 2020, Wolt officially launched our operations in Germany as country #23 starting out in Berlin. As we continue to grow and expand across Germany, we are on our way to Frankfurt and therefore, looking for our next Operations Manager!

As an Operations Manager at Wolt you are the person who is in charge the courier partner operation in your country. This means you are ultimately responsible for every order being a successful one. Either so that it arrives on time at the right location, or that if something goes wrong, it is handled amazingly well, kindly and professionally by our support.

Being one of the first people in the team, you will be both hands-on and strategic. For this to happen you need to onboard, train and maintain 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.

What you will do

  • Build the operations team in your country. This means setting up and managing the food-delivery service by ensuring a kind, professional and thought-through user experience, all the way from our restaurant partners to our couriers 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 happy courier partners on Wolt’s platform to ensure a healthy and sustainable delivery operation in the city
  • Plan the supply of couriers for your city/cities and develop attractive schedules and earning models for courier partners 
  • Managing the payments of our courier partners 
  • Work closely with the General Manager on developing the local business strategy and launching business development initiatives 
  • Work with the marketing team to create and execute marketing campaigns

Our humble expectations

  • You might have a background in operations management, consulting, modern logistics or business development
  • This job requires strategic planning, but it also requires a lot of hands-on doing. You’ll get to both make the analysis and execute on it. This is why we wish you have the ability to combine an analytical mind with a hands-on, getting things done approach – while being great with people.
  • You need leadership skills and the ability to show the direction, as well as the genuine will to support your team members and your courier partners on their way
  • You’re able to navigate complex business data and make critical decisions, then check on the results and refine your actions going forward
  • You’ll be working closely with your General Manager and the rest of the country team. It’s crucial you enjoy being a part of this kind of startup-within-a-startup team while leading your own bits of the operation 
  • Fluent in German and English is a must
  • You are willing to do what it takes and learn how to become a successful entrepreneur
