Role Background

While we are a tech company at heart, our success relies heavily on the performance of our 23 country teams. Our industry is both hyper-local and operational by nature. Therefore, our ability to create and deliver unmatched user experience is contested every day across all our cities.

As a Business Controller, you will be working closely with our senior management both in central functions and country operations. You will be a key contributor in supporting our growth story reaching new heights by providing business insights to our management, as well as developing our management reporting and forecasting processes.

  • We’re responsible for Wolt’s management & investor reporting, P&L analysis, forecasting & budgeting processes and planning systems. Our stakeholders vary from our investors and top executives to country and functional leadership, as well as the wider finance team that we’re an integral part of. 
  • We at Wolt make decisions based on analysis and data, and thus the ability to work with numbers is part of our DNA. Most people at Wolt crunch data on a daily basis, including our CEO. In this company figures really matter, which makes your role all the more important.
