Role background

Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. On our mobile app or website, customers can order their favorite meals from our restaurant partners, and either pick their order up or have it delivered by our courier partners. 

Wolt has been growing rapidly in Germany ever since we launched our operations in August 2020. We’re now in 5 cities and expanding fast with new city launches planned during the next few months.

As we continue to grow, so does the number of restaurant partners that we work with. For us, it’s extremely important that pictures of the dishes prepared by our restaurant partners are consistent and in line with Wolt’s brand expectations - after all, these visual aesthetics are one of the most important aspects for our customers when they choose what to eat! :)

In order to help us to ‘onboard’ restaurants, we’re looking for freelance photographers with a passion for restaurant photography, a willingness to take up new challenges, creativity, speed in action and of course, a love of food!

We've also been fortunate enough to receive some appreciation and recognition for our hard work along the way: Apple selected Wolt’s app as their Editors' Choice, Wired named the company one of the "Hottest Startups in Europe," Forbes included our CEO Miki Kuusi on its 30-under-30 in Consumer Tech list, and the Nordic Startup Awards named Wolt Company of the Year.

In 2020, the Financial Times named us Europe’s second fastest growing company. We’re still expanding rapidly and are looking for more talented individuals to join us.
