Engineering Team Lead, Consumer Core

Remote or Helsinki, Finland

Wolt is looking for an Engineering Team Lead to join the Consumer Core team. The team is responsible for core back-end work on the consumer-facing components of Wolt. Consumer Core is currently filled with rising stars and a recent team split has opened up this exciting job opportunity.

The Consumer Core team plays a unique role within the engineering team at Wolt. You will have a direct influence on what is shown to Wolt customers on the client apps! The team is responsible for developing back-end components with a balanced touch of writing code, DevOps, and software reliability engineering (SRE), all while maintaining and continuously improving the scalability and robustness of our systems. The team sees itself, and is becoming known throughout the organization, as a group of elite engineers capable of driving cross-team initiatives. Examples of recent projects include improving the monitoring and alerting of our infrastructure, observing our resource-utilisation and scaling as required, uncovering and addressing systemic issues in our codebase, and translating pain points into new features.

This role can be based in one of our tech hubs in Helsinki or Berlin, or you can work remotely anywhere in Finland, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, and Estonia. Read more about our remote setup here.

Our humble expectations

Don’t let the ‘lead’ bit fool you; team leads are our teams’ guides, not managers. There is no room for ego and we hope you can be flexible and wear different hats. As team lead of Consumer Core you will be expected to facilitate cross-team matters, develop the roadmap with the team and dynamically (re)prioritize tasks, while representing the team throughout the organization, driving team resourcing decisions, and helping and guiding the team members in their professional and personal growth with regular 1-1s. You will have the opportunity to get your hands dirty when required but you should also be able to recognize when it’s not necessary and let the team do the right thing (which might happen more often than not).

Contributing most to your success will be your emotional intelligence, your ability to communicate and manage expectations in cross-team efforts, and your ability to support the other members of Consumer Core to do their best. When jumping in the trenches, knowledge of Python, Kubernetes, and slew of other supporting technologies, will undoubtedly help.

Next steps

The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and Wolt stock options. The latter make it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie.
