Backend Engineer, Content & Personalisation
Are you interested in being part of building a service that is unique to the tastes of our over 8 million users? Do you want to be part of making Wolt even more personal? Then joining the Content & Personalisation team as a Backend Engineer might be exactly what you are looking for.
This brand spanking new team currently consists of six people and we are hoping that you would be the lucky number seven. The Content & Personalisation team is responsible for “Your Wolt” -experience. The team researches and develops methods and machine learning models for selecting and presenting the most relevant content to the customers based on their personal preferences at any given time, at any given place. You’d be coming up with and implementing new ways for users to browse content, carrying out A/B tests to learn what matters to our users, building new features to the Content Editor used for managing curated content, and supporting work in personalisation and scoring models alongside a machine learning engineer and a data scientist by providing training data and connecting their models with the user product.
Our humble expectations
So what does it take to get personal with this team? We are looking for someone who has experience in modern Python. We have adopted static type checking (with mypy) throughout our Python code, so some prior experience with static typing in Python or some other programming language is appreciated but not mandatory.
To succeed in the fast pace of the team, great communication skills in English are in order, as well as creative problem-solving skills and a customer-obsessed mentality. You are not someone who is just starting their career but you don’t need to be incredibly senior either.
You get our team additionally excited if you have A/B testing experience, prior personalisation or content delivery experience, machine learning experience and if you’ve used Wolt or similar services before (since that definitely helps in understanding the customer better).
The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so make sure to apply as soon as you realize that you in fact are that right person for this role.
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, Petteri Tuomimaa at email@example.com at any given time.
