Head of Customer Support

Oslo, Norway

Do you have a proven track record in driving change, problem-solving, and shaping forward-thinking customer journeys? Are you a good mix of being able to think strategically and work hands-on? Are you a solid leader with experience in efficiently scaling and managing high-performing teams? If this sounds like you, we’d love to chat!

Role Background
We recently launched in Bergen and Sandnes, and are already present in Oslo, Trondheim, Tromsø and Stavanger - with more cities to come soon. We’re expanding rapidly, from our offices in Oslo, and now we’re looking for someone to be part of this hectic, fun and rapid expansion and take ownership of the customer journeys and our support organization in Wolt Norway.

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. We launched 6 years ago and are now in 23 countries and over 120 cities across EMEA, servicing over 10M registered users. 

We are currently looking for our Head of Support to set the direction and lead Norway’s whole Support organization! As part of the Wolt Norway management team, you will work closely with our operation, restaurant, and retail teams to ensure we are delivering the ‘best in the world’ service on all fronts from our customers to our partners. In addition, you will spar with the talented Head of Supports from other countries and with our Global Head of Support on product or feature improvements and how to challenge the future of customer service. 

This is a brand new role for us and we are looking for someone to take our support organization to the next level, looking at operating in scale. As such we are looking for someone with senior skills and junior enthusiasm. You will start with an organization of around 40 support agents and will be responsible for sustainably doubling that number in the near future. We grow fast, but we always put the customer, quality, efficiency, and the wellbeing of our team first.

What you will be doing

  • Strategize and execute: Develop and execute a sustainable, data-driven strategy. Your focus will be on constant improvements and maintaining a high level of satisfaction from our customers and partners. 
  • Manage, mentor & motivate: As we grow you will build and manage several teams within the support organization. This includes acting as a sparring partner for the Customer Support managers and helping them raise the bar in their teams.
  • Problem-solving: You will be both proactive and reactive with incoming and foreseen problems that may occur in support. You will influence a solution-oriented mindset and ensure we are always implementing best practices and ways of working. 
  • Driving performance: You will be a driving force to ensure we are delivering the best support to our customers and partners. Your analytical mindset will dig into our support metrics to make the best kind of decisions and set the right expectations. 
  • Scale smart: We will grow team-size, and in order to cope with demand while keeping up the quality, we need to do things smarter day by day.
  • Grow your organisation and support teams: You have a strong eye for talent as you will be hiring the right people to grow your support team.
  • Champion the culture: Ensure that we protect Wolt’s values and preserve a strong team spirit, focused on coaching, recognition and team development

Our humble expectations

  • You have solid experience in leading Customer Support or Customer Service or Operations organizations in a fast-phased and high volume b2c environment. Ideally, you have been scaling organizations from the early stages and worked in the live operations setting. 
  • You are curious, committed and enjoy taking on full ownership. Therefore, you will naturally take the lead and orchestrate the necessary changes together with the rest of Wolt to reach KPIs and improve the offering we have for our customers.
  • You are very analytical, and make decisions based on data to the extent possible. And when you make decisions you always think about scalability.
  • You have an outgoing personality, where networking and building relationships are your second-nature. And naturally, you care about good customer service!
  • Complementary to your social skills, you are very structured and on top of things.
  • You are a true foodie with a constant hunger to learn and do things better.
  • You are fluent in Norwegian and English.
