Backend Engineer, Consumer Services

Helsinki, Finland
About the role

Wolt is looking for a Backend Engineer to join us based in Helsinki. You'd be working as a part of our Consumer Services team, who are responsible for the backend side of our consumer applications. The team makes sure we always offer the best customer experience and evolves our core customer interfaces to the next level. Our award winning consumer application needs you to help us make it better than ever!

You might be the one if you are a developer with experience of designing and building top class software and APIs. We mostly work with Python (Flask), MongoDB PostgreSQL and appreciate if you understand what it takes to build scalable software services and host them in production with these technologies. The team works closely with our web and mobile teams, who are responsible for the front ends for the same services.

This team is THE Python team in Finland if you want to write clean and exciting code with colleagues who take a lot of ownership and pride in their work together. We are looking for a team member who gets excited about building shiny features but doesn't hesitate to get their hands dirty when solving real-life production problems. 
Join us for a delightful journey!

We could list here all the amazing things that we offer you, but actually the best part about working with Wolt is that we have a freaking awesome group of people working here, and there is never a dull day at the office. The only constant is change, as we take over new uncharted territories!

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.

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! We appreciate a great love letter, so make sure to send over some of that love in your cover letter, if you are feeling some heart palpitations for us.

If you want to check up on your application or have any further questions about the position you can turn to Product Recruiter, Severi Kausola, at at any given time.

About Wolt

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 19 countries and more than 70 cities, servicing over 3 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 more than €150M in financing from renowned U.S. and European based investors, such as ICONIQ Capital, 83North, EQT Ventures and Highland Europe. 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.

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.

Our product development team consists of 90 developers, designers and product managers driving the digital future of food. 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!
