Senior Backend Engineer, Marketing Tech

Remote or Helsinki, Finland

We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join our shiny, new Marketing Tech team! This is a great opportunity if you like to work with heavy volumes of near-real-time data, modern technologies, and in a team that has a significant impact on the business! 

This team was put together to take our marketing efficiency to the next level. We already have a team lead and there are many projects bubbling under, waiting for the right people to come along. Maybe you? The team aims to provide data-centric solutions and services that empower stakeholders with things such as automated advertisement buying, real-time data, content generation, workflow automation, marketing insights, and more. The team works at the intersection of  backend- and data engineering.

We are a heavily data-run company and in this team, you will be working with a mix of 3rd party and internal data in large volumes. On a daily basis, you could be working with backend development, data modeling, streaming data, automating manual workflows, and integrating our team’s tech with other services at Wolt.

The team is based in Helsinki HQ but welcomes a new member to the Helsinki HQ or working entirely remotely elsewhere in Finland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden or Estonia now and in the future! 

Our humble expectations

In this team attitude and desire to get things done comes first. Our data platform is mainly built with Python and the team operates services written in Go, but we value experience in other backend technologies as well. You will be able to influence the technologies that we will be taking on in the future and inside Wolt e.g. Scala and Kotlin are popular. You know what it takes to build scalable software services in production and probably know your way around data modeling and databases. We use Postgres, MongoDB, and Snowflake for warehousing. We also work with Kafka, but don’t let it stop you if you haven’t worked with that before.

Good communication and collaboration skills and taking ownership will take you far and in this team there will be room for you to grow and take responsibility. If your background has been more backend heavy but you’ve been looking to dive also into data engineering, this could be the right fit for you!  

Next steps

The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so please apply quickly! The compensation will be a negotiable 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.

If you want to check up on your application or have any further questions about the position, you can turn to Talent Acquisition Partner Jasmin Shams, at any given time.
