Product Lead, Courier
We are looking for a Product Lead to join our Courier team in Helsinki or Berlin! In a nutshell our Courier team strives towards an outstanding user experience and builds internal tools for courier lifecycle operations. The courier application and tooling are at the heart of Wolt and in a high priority in our product roadmap.
The courier application is crafted to Wolt's partners' needs and we currently have over 60,000 courier partners worldwide and now expanding to new markets monthly. Therefore, it's crucial to make our partners' day-to-day work as enjoyable as possible, having a working solution that scales with the high-speed increase in the number of users! 🚀 The courier team is currently based in Helsinki HQ (working remotely at the moment) but welcomes new members to the Helsinki HQ or working entirely remotely in Germany, Berlin.
As a Product Lead, you will work with a cross-functional team of engineering, design, data and analytics in a high visibility role. You will be responsible for defining the roadmap, prioritisation and setting the vision for the team. This involves leading multiple projects and cross-team product initiatives across the entire product lifecycle, partnering with business and operational stakeholders as well as understanding and analysing our end-users.
Our humble expectations
You could come to this role from a multitude of different backgrounds, but ideally, you have
Plenty of previous experience as a Product Manager / Lead - you know what it takes to develop a great product
Experience working with consumer-facing products - you understand testing, gamification and A/B testing
A mixture of data analysis skills, engineering understanding and business savvy with the go-getter attitude of a "could-be start-up CEO."
Expertise in how to work with and coach cross-functional teams, at least with developers, data experts and with engineering teams
It’s a plus for you if you come from the logistics side since you would be inventing new ways we are doing logistics
It may sound like we are looking for a unicorn (which we probably are), but we believe in unicorns - we are looking for the perfect fit to support us in taking our product to the next level. If you think you might be the one, we are hoping to hear from you!
Our offering to you
You will have ownership of the Courier facing products, and you would work with one of the most important products we have here at Wolt. There are several challenging problems for you to solve from scratch. In a bigger picture, this means you will affect how Wolt keeps growing. 🚀 Sounds fascinating, right?
Overall our product consists of a team of 200 people at Wolt and 20 product management experts. We aim to build no other than the best-in-the-world product management team in Europe at Wolt. 💯
You would get to work in a company culture where we take ownership beyond the obvious, do common things uncommonly well, we think big but stay humble, do right by people, we treat others kindly and justly, recognise that if we don’t learn, we won’t stay still but fall behind and keep in mind that Luke was Yoda’s greatest achievement. Read more about how we work. 💙
The compensation is a 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. 🙌
