Talent Acquisition Lead, Product & Analytics
At Wolt recruitment is a first class citizen. We invite you to come feel that love and support for yourself by joining as a Talent Acquisition Lead for the Product Management, Product Design and Analytics departments!
Wolt is more than just a food delivery operation – in fact we are built upon a solid foundation of state-of-the-art technology. We’re looking for an experienced talent acquisition professional to join our “Product+” talent team, responsible for finding exceptional talent for our engineering, analytics, product management, product design and security teams. The domain is split into two areas: Engineering and Security, and Analytics and Product. The latter includes among others data science, data analytics, product management and product design. In this role, you’d be leading the group of Talent Acquisition Partners responsible for hiring for these departments, as well as doing some hands on hiring yourself for key roles. There are still partner positions to be filled within your team, but we expect it to be a team of 4-7 people within the next 6-12 months.
Our Product+ organization has grown from mere 20 people to 300+ in the space of 3 years. In the meantime Wolt has also been on a tremendous growth trajectory - in that same time we’ve grown from 5 countries to 23, a million users to 13 million, raised over 700MEUR in funding… and the list keeps going. This is your chance to be a part of building the next chapter of Wolt.
As a team lead you’ll be making sure we do the right things in the right ways. As a servant leader, you are there to enable your team to do their best work. The roles we hire for are located mainly in our Product Hubs in Helsinki and Berlin, but we hire internationally and for remote roles across Finland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Estonia. We hope for you to be based in either Helsinki or Berlin. We work in an end-to-end model, where each recruiter owns the roles they work with, from building the recruitment strategy and building the pipeline to closing.
