Engineering Team Lead, Merchant Group
Wolt is looking for an Engineering Team Lead to join our new Merchant team based in Helsinki.
The Merchant team has grown to a size where a team split is needed and actually happened recently. Our pre-existing team lead Pyry will be there to help you out with getting up to speed and work as a fellow team lead with you in the future.
You would take the lead of one of two teams: Merchant App or Restaurant Menu. The App team owns the venue frontline staff experience, which mostly means working with the iPad application that our merchants use to receive, accept and track orders. As the name suggests, the Restaurant menu team owns the restaurant menu editor experience, the restaurant menu model, and helps other teams inside Wolt about menu-related topics. Both of these are cross-functional end-to-end teams with talented people from different Wolt countries.
We welcome new members to the Helsinki HQ or working entirely remotely elsewhere in Finland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden or Estonia now and in the future! If you live outside of these countries - not to worry! We provide relocation support to help you make your way to Finland or Germany.
Our humble expectations
You know what it takes to develop top-quality software, take care of people and achieve ambitious goals together. You'll be an inspirer, facilitator and enabler for the team to do what they do best by making personal development plans, hosting regular 1on1s and taking part in recruitment. You're not afraid to step into action when needed, and most of the time, you are also ready to step back and let the team do its magic. We expect you to be a good communicator, willing to serve people outside of your team, and a product-oriented and proactive problem solver willing to bring up issues in a constructive manner to the team and the whole Wolt Product team.
The essential tasks in this role are facilitation, communication, helping high performing engineers to focus and bringing them context.
If you are one of those unicorns with leadership abilities & development skills, there is room in this position for hands-on contribution as well! We are thrilled if you have technical expertise in fields such as backend engineering with modern Python or Kotlin, frontend development with React + Typescript. Knowledge in the merchant domain is a plus too.
The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so feel free to apply as soon as you feel like hearing more about the position and potentially joining Wolt!
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 Petteri Tuomimaa at firstname.lastname@example.org at any given time.

We work in small teams with high ownership, with each team focusing on a key area of the Wolt product stack. Each and every one of our product team members has a say in where we are going and what solutions we implement. We work with a passion, but we haven't forgotten how to have fun along the way!
