We launched in Estonia back in 2016 and from there, we’ve already expanded to Tallinn and Pärnu with more to come. As we continue to grow and expand across Estonia, we are looking for our next Operations Manager!
As an Operations Manager at Wolt, you are the person responsible for the courier partner operation in your region. This means you are ultimately responsible for every order being a successful one. This is equally a hands-on and strategic role as you and your team will be onboarding, training and maintaining a healthy community of thousands of motivated and happy courier partners. This requires both leadership and analytical skills, getting your hands dirty and working well together with your General Manager as well as the rest of your country team. As delivery is a big part of the operations, you will also have a substantial P&L responsibility.
What you will do
- Lead the operations team in Estonia
- Continuously improve delivery efficiency and KPIs
- Create and improve business processes that drive the operation towards efficiency and profitability, while allowing the business to scale
- Make sound and critical business decisions based on the vast amount of data that our platform provides us with
- Onboard, retain and grow the number of happy courier partners on Wolt’s platform to ensure a healthy and sustainable delivery operation in the city
- Plan the supply of couriers for cities across Estonia and develop attractive schedules and earning models for courier partners
- Manage the payments of our courier partners
- Be a part of the local management team and work closely with the General Manager on developing the local business strategy and launching business development initiatives
- Lead the expansion into new cities in strong cooperation with the restaurant team
Our humble expectations
- You have a solid track record in operations management, consulting, modern logistics or business development
- This job requires strategic planning, but it also requires a lot of hands-on doing. You’ll get to both make the analysis and execute on it. This is why we wish you have the ability to combine an analytical mind with a hands-on, getting things done approach – while being great with people
- You’re able to navigate complex business data and make critical decisions, then check on the results and refine your actions going forward
- You need leadership skills and the ability to show the direction, as well as the genuine will to support your team members and your courier partners on their way
- You have the ability to disseminate ideas in a clear, concise manner to the relevant stakeholders through both verbal and written communications.
- You’ll be working closely with your General Manager and the rest of the country team. It’s crucial you enjoy being a part of this kind of startup-within-a-startup team while leading your own bits of the operation
- Fluent in Estonian and English
