Product Lead, Consumer Search

Remote or Berlin, Germany
Product Management

We are looking for a Product Lead to join our Consumer Search team in Helsinki, Berlin or Stockholm (or pretty much any city  Wolt operates). The search team is responsible for enabling Wolt users to find all that they need, easily.

What does it mean in practice? To be quite honest, we hope to turn Wolt’s badly broken search experience - yes, we are acutely aware that our search experience doesn’t do our product justice -  into a delightful one. Whether our customers are looking for pasta (whether from their favourite restaurant or from a grocery store nearby), an ethernet cable for the PS5 they just copped, or the trendiest organic shop in their city, we aim to make it easy to find it and to deliver it promptly to their doorstep. In time, we want to make entire cities discoverable via Wolt’s search experience.

As a Product Lead, you will work with a cross-functional team of incredibly talented engineering, design, product and analytics humans in a high visibility role. You will be responsible for defining the roadmap and setting the vision for your team. This involves leading multiple projects and cross-team product initiatives across the entire product lifecycle, partnering with business and operations stakeholders as well as understanding our end-users better than anyone. 

Your home base will be Wolt’s product management team but you will be working on a daily basis with the Consumer Search team. When it comes to career progression, this role has a fairly clear path to a more strategy-focused and leadership-oriented role (e.g. head of product) over time, as one delivers impact. We’ll let you in on a little secret: most of Wolt’s product people leads today have been promoted from within 🥳.

You can be based in the Helsinki capital area or work remotely elsewhere in Finland, Germany or Sweden now and in the future (and we will consider other locations with an open mind)! Read more about our new remote set-up here. 🌍

Our humble expectations

You could come to this role from a multitude of different backgrounds, but ideally, you have 

  • Plenty of similar experience in product management. Having previously worked with search experience- knowing what it takes to develop a great product in this space

  • Desire to be in a high-ownership role. You need to be comfortable with both getting your hands dirty as well as driving cross-team projects outside of your main domain

  • Experience working with complex data projects, together with developing world-class user experiences (search is at least as much about developing great consumer experience by bringing context to results, as it is about solving the multifaceted data problems in the domain)

  • A mixture of data analysis skills, engineering understanding, design sensitivity, and business savviness with the go-getter attitude of a (humble) "could-be start-up CEO" 

  • Expertise in how to work with and coach cross-functional teams, at least with designers, data experts and engineers

We are probably looking for a unicorn, but we believe in unicorns! We look for the perfect fit to help taking our product to the next level. If you think you might be the one, we hope to hear from you soon!


Our offering to you

Overall our product consists of a 300-people team and 30 product management experts, as well as 20 designers. At Wolt, we aim to build no other than the best-in-the-world product management team in Europe 💯.

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 🙌.
