- Arkadiankatu 6, 00100 Helsinki, Finland
- Department: Engineering
Wolt is a technology company that makes it incredibly easy to discover and get the best restaurants, grocery stores and other local shops delivered to your home or office. Wolt works together with over 30,000 restaurant and retail partners as well as with over 60,000 courier partners across 23 countries and 129 cities.
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 more than €707M in financing from renowned U.S. and European based investors, such as ICONIQ Capital, Tiger Global, DST, Prosus, KKR, Coatue, 83North, Goldman Sachs, Highland Europe and EQT Ventures & EQT Growth, among others. 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.
Wolt is more than just a food and retail 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!

With an App Store rating of 4.8 and a Google Play rating of 4.7, we are proud to delight our courier partners with the Wolt Partner app, the most liked platform in the category
The team is responsible for the development and maintenance of the app and its backend. The team strives towards an outstanding user experience and also builds internal tools for courier lifecycle operations. The courier application and tooling are at the heart of Wolt and in a high priority in our product roadmap. Therefore, a highly impactful role is offered! The team is based in Helsinki HQ (working remotely at the moment) but welcomes a new member to the Helsinki HQ or working entirely remotely in elsewhere Finland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden or Estonia now and in the future! 🌍 Read more about our remote setup here.
The team strives for both technical excellence and thoughtful design. The courier application is crafted to Wolt's partners' needs, and the team is passionate about implementing the code to scale. We currently have about 60,000 courier partners worldwide and now expanding to new markets monthly. Therefore, it's crucial to make our partners' day-to-day work as enjoyable as possible, having a working solution that scales with the high-speed increase in the number of users! 🚀
You'll be working together with an experienced team of developers building an application for 60, 000 users who make their income through the Wolt Partner app. The team consists of frontend and backend developers, designers, a product lead, and a team lead. We value autonomy and ownership and hope all our new team members enjoy that kind of the environment too. Each and every team member has a chance to be part of the product decisions, priorities, ways of working, design, or any other topics. There is a huge opportunity to impact how the Wolt Partner app should look and influence changes in the team's roadmap.
The Wolt Partner app is developed in React Native, but excellent skills with React and native mobile development experience with some other technologies will already take you far! Some knowledge in one of the native platforms, iOS/Android, would be a nice benefit but not a requirement.
The app is built with modern TypeScript and React native. Although it is nearing its 5th birthday, you would not be able to guess so at first glance. We are constantly striving to keep it maintainable, great to work on, and most importantly delightful to use. All of our major dependencies are kept up to date, and we put a strong emphasis on keeping it bug-free with extensive testing, strong utilization of TypeScript, and thorough code reviews. Our backend is written in Scala.
At Wolt, each team takes full ownership of their work, roadmap, and the end of the technology choices. On top of the technical expertise, we value your interest in learning new things and making decisions together with your team, and your willingness to collaborate with different teams Wolt-wide.
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.
