Backend Engineer, Courier products
We are looking for a Backend Engineer to join our Courier team. The team strives towards the perfect Courier experience at Wolt for our hard working courier partners. The courier team is responsible for the Courier application that our couriers use in their everyday work, the internal tools for courier lifecycle management and the server side code to support both of these. We have over 20,000 courier partners on our platform, but this number is only growing as fast as Wolt is.
The team strives to both technical excellence and thoughtful design. The courier tools are crafted to Wolt's specific needs and the team is passionate about architecting the code to last. As a part of the team, your role would be to take high and independent responsibility for developing and improving the backend for the courier tools in close collaboration with the other team members. The data you get to play around with is diverse; ranging from real-time operations data to masses of historical data to be connected with. You would be one of the key persons for developing the future of the courier tools, whether that be helping create tools to balance the demand and supply ratio or implement dataflows between microservices.
Our humble expectations
We use Scala on our courier backends, so production level experience with Scala or other JVM languages would be preferable. We value an attitude of constant improvement and having no fear of taking a bunch of legacy code and making it better. On the other hand, the ability to create completely new features from scratch is highly appreciated. Entrepreneurial attitude of taking ownership of what you've building 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 firstname.lastname@example.org at any given time.
