General Manager

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Are you a problem-solver with a passion for building teams and organisations? Are you motivated by working with and influencing every area of a business? Then we’d love to hear from you!

Role background

Since we entered the Slovenian market at the end of 2019, following our success in Croatia and then Serbia, we’ve seen excellent growth in every area of the business! From our humble start in Ljubljana, we’re now working with a huge variety of partners across multiple cities, delivering to thousands of active users. 

As we go into the next phase of expansion in Slovenia, we need a new General Manager to jump in and continue driving our team towards more success! 

As a Wolt General Manager you have full ownership of your market, which essentially means you are the CEO of a startup within a startup. Your mission is to build a great team and, together with them, make your cities better places for hungry people, for restaurants wanting to get more sales, and for courier partners wanting to earn flexibly.

You’ll own your market’s P&L and need to be both building the operation and growing the market while maintaining a healthy level of efficiency, steadily moving towards profitability. Your job will consist of analytical thinking, data-driven decisions, mastering marketing and restaurant partnerships, and building a world-class delivery operation with the support of an Apple-awarded technology company. It’s all there.

In this role, you’ll get a lot of help and support on the way, but are also expected to be an amazing independent manager with an exceptional ability to execute every single day.

What you’ll be doing

  • Building a market-winning business in Slovenia.
  • Expanding your country team, together with our recruiting function.
  • Leading the team towards your vision of what Wolt should be in your country.
  • Managing a P&L and taking care of efficiency, profitability, sustainability and scalability.
  • Refining your processes, continuously improving, while sharing your learnings with our HQ and other markets.
  • Leading and guiding your team to ensure a seamless experience for our customers, our restaurant partners and courier partners.
  • Continuing to scale and maintain a healthy delivery operation with your Operations Manager.
  • Taking an active role in top-level negotiations with important partners
  • Maintaining a robust support framework for customers, restaurants, and courier partners together with your Support Team
  • Executing innovative and viral user growth campaigns for consumers with your Marketing Manager.
  • Working with our global communications & PR team to make sure that Wolt does not go unnoticed in the local press.

Our humble expectations

  • An energetic and resilient spirit is the soul to our culture, where you are constantly on your toes and seeking ways to build your country.
  • You have managed large teams with multiple direct reports and sub teams in a growth environment.
  • You have a background in high growth and scale companies or management consulting.
  • You have solid experience working in leadership, strategy and business development.
  • You have been involved with recruiting and have a strong eye for top talent.
  • You have an analytical and strategic mindset where you will be able to make data-driven decisions.
  • P&L experience is necessary as you’ll be responsible for owning your new market and building the operation from scratch.
  • You have at least a Bachelor in Finance, Economics or equivalent.
  • Fluency in Slovenian & English.
