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

Do you have a sweet spot for building amazing UI and top class software? Would you like to work in one of our teams that have a significant impact in conquering new markets and growth of our business? We have just the spot open for you!

We are looking for experienced Frontend/Fullstack Engineers to join our engineering teams in the Finance Group of product development (8 engineering teams in total), working on e.g. enabling smooth money flows (in and out), country operations and ensuring locally compliant financial invoicing. As Wolt operates internationally in over 23 countries and over 120 cities, we have to meet local requirements and have the best tools available in financial matters. This group of engineering teams also make sure that our product is ready to enter new markets by building integrations for invoicing and taxation and automating financial processes for local country teams. In addition, they have an important role whenever we expand to new business domains, such as retail and Wolt Market grocery chain. Naturally they work closely with our operative teams of expansion, legal and finance to make this happen.

Cool stuff about our teams:

  • Ownership: We handle the whole development process (business logic, testing, database & data streaming, CI/CD, analytics, cloud) ourselves in an autonomous manner. Don’t worry, we’re not alone: We have support from central teams when we need help.

  • Technology: We use modern tools and technologies. Current stack in use: TypeScript, React, Kotlin, Python, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Kafka, GitHub Actions, Jenkins, AWS, Docker and Kubernetes.

  • Autonomy: We make the decisions as a team and group of teams! We are free to choose the technology stack and tools and make architectural decisions together. No top down decisions!

  • Growth: There is a lot of room for learning, teaching and growing together. We will support you with the tools and materials you need. 

  • Creativity: We’re building lots of new stuff with minimal technical debt so you can focus on developing new features.

  • Flexibility: You can choose whether you want to work fully remote, from the office or hybrid. It’s up to you and we don’t monitor people. We have a dedicated relocation partner to help you move to either Finland or Germany. If you are currently living in Estonia, Denmark or Sweden there is no need for you to relocate should you want to work from home but we will help you if you do want to move.

  • Diversity: We have different people with different backgrounds. Cultivating diversity and maintaining different opinions is the key to our success.

This role can be based in one of our tech hubs in Helsinki or Berlin, or you can work remotely anywhere in Finland, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, and Estonia. Read more about our remote setup here.


As we use modern Typescript and React in the Frontend, we are looking for someone with at least several years of prior experience working with them. On the backend side, we work with Python and Kotlin. We prioritise frontend skills so don't hesitate to apply even if you want to focus on pure frontend. Understanding Fintech will help you succeed, but please don’t let it get in the way if it’s a new area for you -  we’re sure you’d get a grasp of things quickly once you start! 

In addition to technical expertise we value taking ownership beyond obvious, your motivation to learn new things you don’t yet master, ability to make decisions together with your team and willingness to collaborate with different teams Woltwide. 

Additional Information

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.
