About the role
Wolt is looking for a Team Lead to join our brand new Merchant Integrations team based in Helsinki. The team is emerging from our existing Merchant product team, to focus on a smooth experience for all of Wolt's merchant partners.
Wolt has close to 10,000 merchants on the platform, and that means a lot of purchase data going both ways. We've already had a Merchant product team in place for a number of years, that has tirelessly worked on making the Merchant experience on Wolt as much of a joy as the Wolt experience is for our consumer users. Now it's time to level up, and ensure a painless data flow between our Merchant's systems (f.ex. inventory management, POS), and ours. The team is building our own self-service API, as well as custom integrations for our biggest merchant partners.
We're looking for someone to take the helm of the team. The team will have 2 skilled engineers moving over from the existing team, and we want to bring you in to strengthen the team with your hands on development skills combined with leadership abilities. You know what it takes to develop top quality software, take care of people and achieve ambitious goals together. You are an engineer and a people leader rolled into one. You'll be a facilitator and an enabler for the team to do what they do best, by making personal development plans, hosting regular 1on1s and taking part in the future recruitment, while also being a productive developer. We estimate you to spend 70% of your time coding and 30% team leading. It's a small team, but we expect there to be needs to grow it later on.
In terms of your technical abilities, we'd hope you to be skilled in JVM technologies, preferably Kotlin. We use Kotlin, but if you're confident with your Java skills you're sure to pick that up quickly even if you've not developed with it before. It would be absolutely golden if you have any experience of working with Point of Sale or inventory management systems.
Join us for a delightful journey!
The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so make sure to apply as soon as you realize you really, really want to join us!
The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and Wolt stock options. The latter make 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 Product Recruitment Manager, Laura Teerisuo, at email@example.com at any given time.
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’re currently active in 22 countries and more than 80 cities, servicing over 5 million customers. Our apps (iOS and Android) have the industry’s highest reviews, largely because of our customer-centric approach to how we build our products and operations. For example, our customer service team responds in a matter of seconds, in the customer’s own language.
We’ve raised €258M in financing from renowned U.S. and European based investors, such as ICONIQ Capital, 83North, EQT Ventures, Highland Europe and Goldman Sachs Growth Equity. 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 we were recognized as the fastest growing tech company in Europe by the Financial Times.
Wolt is more than just a food delivery operation – in fact we are built upon a solid foundation of state-of-the-art technology. Our internal tooling enables us to ramp up new cities efficiently and provide excellent customer service, our own logistics platform allows us to optimise our couriers’ work to get you the food you want as fast as possible, and our restaurant platform allows restaurants to offer exciting food experiences for our customers in an optimal way.
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!
