Product Lead, Payments
We are looking for a Product Lead to join our Product Management organization, working directly with one of the two Payments engineering teams. A great payments experience is absolutely integral to delivering seamless customer journeys. Our payments teams is obsessed about offering increasingly diverse and local payment solutions, and ensuring that no customer is separated from the burger or poke bowl of their dreams because of unnecessary friction at checkout. At the same time, we are determined to keep fraudsters away, and have embarked on a journey to build increasingly smarter models to achieve best-in-class security and fraud detection standards.
As a Product Lead, you'll help one of the Payments teams to focus on the most impactful things by roadmapping, prioritizing and planning for new features and products correctly (with customer experience and Wolt’s internal performance metrics in mind). This may sound like a very standard PM role, but rest assured, it's a lot more. The growth possibilities are endless and we are looking to indulge you with a lot of ownership and responsibility.
The Payments teams work on several frontend and backend service components used for payments processing cost optimization, maximizing approval rates, while keeping fraud low. As Wolt keeps expanding to newer markets (did you know that we just launched in Japan and Germany?), the payments teams are also increasingly expanding the number of payment method options available to customers.
Our humble expectations
In an ideal world you'd be a mixture of data analysis skills, engineering understanding and business savvy with the go-getter attitude of a "could-be start-up CEO". You'll be working closely with the engineering team, so you need to understand our developers, and what it takes to develop a great product. The business savvy comes in when you need to work with our business operations, do competition and user research and build roadmaps for new business areas or products. You could come to this role from a multitude of different backgrounds, but previous experience as a product manager or engineering lead in a deep technical environment might have prepared you for a magical mystery ride as a Wolt Product Lead. Frankly, having a background in Payments or FinTech products wouldn’t hurt either, far from it (i.e. this is pretty much a hard requirement unless you manage to convince us otherwise).
It may sound like we are looking for a unicorn (which we probably are) but we believe in unicorns - we are looking for the perfect fit to support us taking our product to the next level. If you think you might be the one, we are really hoping to hear from you! The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so make sure to apply as soon as you realize you really, really want to join us!
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 Lead, Laura Teerisuo, at firstname.lastname@example.org at any given time.
