Engineering Team Lead, Secret Project
We're kicking off new verticals at Wolt, and next up is... something interesting! This secret project is something we don't want to publicly announce yet, but we have already got it started and we are currently strengthening the team around this new vertical. Without revealing too much, we're looking to relieve the pain most of us experience at some point in our lives, and as Wolt does, release even more time back to people’s lives to do the things you enjoy the most.
There is a lot of intricate engineering work that goes into building this new thing. Much refactoring to be done to our existing codebase, and of course plenty of new functionality to be built. We're already at work building the MVP and there’s a number of features on the bucket list for the post-MVP phase.
Our humble expectations
We're looking for someone to take the helm of the team. The team consists of 4 engineers 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 expect you to be a good communicator, willing to collaborate with people outside of your own team and 3rd parties, 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 are one of those unicorns, with leadership abilities & development skills, there is room in this position for hands on coding as well! 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. Considering your technical tool belt, previous experience in building scalable APIs will be beneficial.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
