Account Executive - Large Retail Accounts
Are you an experienced sales professional that’s hungry for your next big challenge? Do you get excited about building up a brand new business vertical for Wolt and shaping how people shop in the future? If this sounds like you, then we’d love to chat!
At Wolt we’re on a mission to make cities a better place to live with the help of technology. We started in 2014 in Finland, with the customer-obsessed mindset we have now reached 23 countries with over 12M users. We are best known for our food delivery platform but are now on a journey to become an ‘’everything’’ app so you can get almost anything in your city delivered to your doorstep in less than an hour. That means expanding our business to supermarkets, flowers, toys, electronics, gifts, and other exciting products, all referred to as Retail.
We launched in Norway in 2017 and are already operating in Oslo, Trondheim, Tromsø, Stavanger, Bergen and Sandnes with more cities to come soon. As we expand rapidly, we're now looking for a talented sales professional to help us build up our biggest retail partnerships in Norway.
As a Retail Sales Executive, you will be a true ‘hunter’ and build up our retail portfolio from scratch by managing your own pipeline of large retail partners from A to Z. This requires good commercial thinking to be able to identify the most appropriate retailers across various verticals and strong communication and negotiation skills to be able to show the value Wolt can bring to the retail industry.
