Company Description

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!


Job Description

We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join our shiny new Payouts team. The team is focused on making the next level payout automation a reality. This undertaking is central to the success of Wolt, and your work will directly push the company forward. If you enjoy complex technical problem solving, making people's lives easier and more reliable and you know Kotlin, Python or have a strong JVM background - this might be the next adventure for you.

Payouts team takes responsibility for the final leg of the financial movements for Courier and Merchant partners. The team designs and builds the services we need to manage the complex landscape of bank connections and payout calculations across the Wolt operations. Services and tooling the team has been able to create have been hailed as a lifesaver. The team works in close collaboration with other Financial Services -teams.

The successful work of this team enables Wolt to grow the number of courier partners and merchants in a sustainable fashion so you have a possibility to have a really strong impact on the company as a whole as a backend engineer in this new team.

The teams are currently based in Helsinki HQ and Berlin offices. We welcome both on-site & remote new members from Finland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, or Estonia! Note that we only have relocation support for Helsinki & Berlin for the time being. 🌍


Our payment flow is written in Python (FastAPI, Flask) but we’ve started to build new services in Kotlin. Thus we are looking for the ability to develop production-level Python and/or Kotlin but find strong expertise in other modern - especially JVM - backend languages relevant as well. 

Experience from the payments domain is appreciated as well as prior experience with creating tooling for automating cash flow, but this is not something we necessarily expect from you. 

Additional Information

The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so make sure to apply as soon as you realize that you in fact are that right person for this role.

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.

If you want to check up on your application or have any further questions about the position you can turn to Talent Acquisition Partner, Petteri Tuomimaa at [email protected] at any given time.
