Backend Engineer, Payments

Helsinki, Finland

We are looking for a Backend Engineer to join our Payments team. The name says it all as this team works with building world-class payment infrastructure for Wolt. If Python or Kotlin is up your alley, you could be the right match! 

The Payments team is a part of our financial services group and focuses on incoming payments from consumers. The team has the ownership of the whole payment flow and handles all integrations to payment providers and makes sure that the desired payment methods are available for consumers. What makes things unique is the payment landscape which is constantly evolving and requires local adaptation in different countries. If you’ve worked with payments before, you know the thrill. But if you haven’t, you might want to give it a try! 

Our humble expectations

We are looking for someone who has experience building high-quality software and APIs and can handle the whole development cycle all the way to production. Our payment flow is written in Python (FastAPI, Flask) but we’ve started to build new services in Kotlin. Thus we are looking for the ability to develop production level Python and/or Kotlin but find strong expertise in other backend languages genuinely relevant as well. 

It would be out of this world if you had experience in the payments domain, but not to worry if you don’t - with the help of our team you’ll quickly get the hang of it. Likewise we hope that you also like to share your knowledge and make our team even stronger that way. We also appreciate a genuine interest in functional programming.

Next steps

The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so please apply quickly! 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. Note that this position can be based in Finland, Germany, Denmark or Estonia. 
If you want to check up on your application or have any further questions about the position, you can turn to Talent Acquisition Partner Jasmin Shams, at any given time.
