Role Background

You’ll be supporting our world class technical talent and Team Leads as an advisor, and drive both short and long term development initiatives, making sure that every Product team member located in Germany feels as strongly part of Wolt as their teammates at the Helsinki HQ. We are growing our team in Berlin at a super fast pace, so we want to have a dedicated Product+ People Partner on site, supporting this growth in close collaboration with our local Directors.
