Backend Engineer, Growth and marketing
Wolt is looking for a backend developer to join our Growth and marketing team. The Growth team is all about driving… you guessed it, growth! The team does this by making changes to our consumer-facing applications (iOS, Android, and Web), building new customer-facing features, and building tools for our marketing teams. The team works on significant new customer-facing features experimentally - the development within the team moves at a fast-pace, is very iterative, involves a lot of testing out new things and finding new ways to engage our customers.
The Growth & Marketing team is currently 9 people strong and consists of a team lead, a product lead, a data-analyst, mobile, backend, and frontend engineers, and a designer and in the future, probably you :) There will be plenty of opportunities to collaborate with other teams on common projects. At Wolt, we are working in small agile teams where high ownership is valued and is visible in the day-to-day work.
As our HQ is located in Helsinki and so is the current team even though right now we are working in a remote mode due to the pandemic. The new team member can be based either in Helsinki or working fully remotely from other cities in Finland or Berlin.
Our humble expectations
Do you have a background in designing and building top-class systems at scale? - Amazing!
You might be the one we are looking for. On the backend side, we use Python; thus, excellence comes in handy. But strong expertise in another backend language is also genuinely relevant, but enthusiasm towards working with Python is essential. Pertinent other technologies are MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and our environment is AWS. Experience and vision in backend architecture are highly valued as well as experience in growth hacking.
We expect you to be a good communicator, willing to collaborate with people outside of your own team, be product-oriented, and a proactive problem solver keen to bring up issues in a constructive manner to the team and the Wolt Product+ team at large.
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 want to join us!
The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and Wolt stock options. The latter makes 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 Talent Acquisition Partner Noora Markoff at noora.markoff(at)wolt.com at any given time.
Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we're best known for our delivery platform. On our mobile apps or website, customers can order their favorite meals from our restaurant partners – or other items from our grocery and retail partners – to either pick up their order or have it delivered by our courier partners.
We're currently active in 23 countries and more than 120 cities, servicing over 8 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 €267M 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 and retail 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 have 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!
