Engineering Team Lead, Merchant team
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. The Merchant team is responsible for enabling smooth cooperation by building both external and internal tools related, and providing our merchants with insights into their business. The menu "model" is often thought to be one of the most complicated things Wolt has built / builds in the Engineering organisation. We currently have more than 20,000 restaurants on Wolt, but that number is scaling FAST, so it's more important than ever to develop our merchant facing products.
As a Team Lead in the Merchant team, you'll be helping the team to succeed in making our beautiful dream of multiplying the number of restaurants a reality. The team works on all the tooling we offer our restaurants, like our Merchant iPad application (with which the restaurants receive their orders), Merchant Admin (a platform for the merchants with our Menu Editor and business analytics) and internal Merchant management tools.
Our humble expectations
We're looking for someone to take the helm of the team. The team consists of 7 engineers, two designers and a product lead and we want to bring you in to strengthen the team with your leadership abilities. You know what it takes to develop top quality software, take care of people and achieve ambitious goals together. You'll be an inspirer, facilitator and an enabler for the team to do what they do best, by making personal development plans, hosting regular 1on1s and taking part in the future recruitment. We don’t estimate you to be a rockstar developer but a background in software engineering will help you a lot as the ability to do technical planning, leveraging the expertise of team members and getting the team to work effectively together is a must.
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, 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 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!
