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 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. If you are passionate about cutting-edge technology, great food, and making an impact in your city, then Wolt just might be for you.

Role Background

Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform.

We’ve grown significantly in the last three years, expanding our operations from just four countries across the Nordics, to 23 countries across Europe and Asia today.

Our Finance team has played a key role in this journey - supporting our global operations from their central Helsinki hub has been no easy feat, but this group of dedicated and motivated professionals have made it seem effortless!

As we continue to scale, we’re now looking for another experienced Accounts Payable superstar to help with the day-to-day payment processing. In this role, you’ll be a dedicated support function for the payments in several countries, but mainly focusing on our parent company. You can expect to be hands on in lots of varied duties - from reconciliations to manual payment processing, or even investigating any declined payments.

The role is based in Finland, and you will be working out of our HQ in the central part of Helsinki.

What makes the Finance team so special is our ‘service first’ approach to the job - we enjoy creating strong communication loops with the wider business, so that bottlenecks are minimised and that things get done quickly and efficiently.

Everybody is accountable for their own workload and takes pride in being meticulous and precise. We also enjoy learning and developing as we go - it’s important that you share this approach! :)

  • Courier payments processing
  • Supporting restaurant payout processing
  • Purchase invoice handling and payment processing
  • Salary and tax payments processing
  • Corporate invoicing and collection
  • Cash flow monitoring
  • Reconciliations

  • At least 3+ years experience and a solid foothold as an Accounts Payable and/or an Accountant or in a similar position.
  • Demonstrable experience of autonomously problem solving in a fast-paced environment.
  • Excellent MS Excel skills
  • Prior experience in NetSuite and SAP is a plus
