Engineering Team Lead, Platform Services
Wolt is looking for an Engineering Team Lead to join our new Platform Services team based in Helsinki. The team enables us to move faster with more certainty on security and cross team technical challenges, whilst minimizing the need for strike forces and other more disruptive methods to the product teams at large. It also creates more secure Wolt with developing key features and moves ownership from a few individuals to a collective team. This means the team has ownership over maintaining components such as Wolt’s authentication and notification services as well as other shared platform components. The team's mission is to help other teams succeed, and drive down the amount of reinventing-the-wheel. This is the team that aims to create high quality components that can be shared across the Wolt application teams.
The team is a power squad of five experienced engineers currently and it works closely with our Platform, Developer Happiness, and Security teams, among other product teams.
Our humble expectations
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 recruitment. We expect you to be a good communicator, willing to collaborate with people outside of your own team, be a 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 modern web development, authentication and notification services or any shared platform components would be highly 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.
