Job Description

Are you an experienced legal professional seeking a varied and challenging role? Does being part of one of Europe’s fastest growing companies excite you? If this sounds like you, then please read on! 

Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. Just 3 years ago, Wolt operated in 4 countries and 10 cities across the Nordics. Fast forward to today, we’re in 23 countries and over 210+ cities, servicing over 15M registered users. In the last year, we've expanded our platform beyond food delivery into categories such as grocery,  cosmetics, flowers, toys, electronics, books and other exciting products, all referred to as retail. Our vision is to offer everything our customers need, to their door, in 30min or less.

As the platform economy is changing the ways consumers connect with restaurants and retailers, we are seeing a huge opportunity to be the industry leader with the amazing teams we have built globally. 

Our Legal superstars have been an integral part throughout this journey - they’ve consistently been at the forefront of building and scaling legal and compliance operations in all of Wolt’s markets. Naturally, as the company expanded, so has our Legal & Public Policy team. We’re now looking to expand our legal team in Israel with this role being based in Tel Aviv and reporting to the Senior Legal Counsel in Tel Aviv, heading the country’s legal team. .   

We’re looking for someone who has the ability to tackle a number of complicated legal issues, but also someone who understands the Wolt way of doing things; a problem-solver with an entrepreneurial streak, a self-starting business-driver. A solid understanding of the platform economy would be fantastic and it goes without saying that you are a true ‘people person’.


What You’ll Be Doing

  • As a Legal Counsel, you’ll support Wolt’s business in Israel  in all legal matters (later on there may be a possibility to expand to other countries as well).
  • You will provide day-to-day legal support to our business teams, and work closely with global teams, like product development, operations and business development.

  • You will proactively identify and develop legal solutions and improvement possibilities, as well as  help design and implement policies and processes to build and scale the legal function.  
  • You will follow legal and regulatory developments and advise the team on new and emerging legal issues. 
  • You’ll help us improve our existing contract processes and templates with our merchant, courier and other business partners in Israel and other designated markets, as well as review, draft and negotiate a variety of commercial agreements. 
  • You will handle consumer-facing legal matters, including the development and adaptations of T&Cs, review of product design, marketing practices and other aspects of our business. 
  • You will manage litigations, as they arise (using outside counsel, as needed)
  • We are looking for people who proactively do useful things that no one told them to do and who tend to find a way when they know something needs to be done.

Qualifications

  • 5+ years of experience practicing law at a law firm and in-house in handling b2b/b2c/regulatory matters, preferably in the e-commerce sphere, in an international setting.
