Backend Engineer, Merchant Team


Helsinki, Finland

Full time

Jan 9

This job is no longer accepting applications.

There would be no Wolt, without the restaurants and retailers. We live in symbiosis, and we are dedicated to serving our merchants in the best possible way - in the best cases, we've multiplied the revenue of our merchants and improved their market reach. The Merchant team is responsible for enabling smooth cooperation by building both external and internal tools related, and providing our merchants with insights into their business. The menu "model" is often thought to be one of the most complicated things Wolt has built / builds in the Engineering organisation. We currently have more than 20,000 restaurants on Wolt, but that number is scaling FAST, so it's more important than ever to develop our merchant facing products.

As a Backend Engineer in the Merchant team, you'll be making our beautiful dream of multiplying the number of restaurants a reality. The team works on all the tooling we offer our restaurants, like our Merchant iPad application (with which the restaurants receive their orders), Merchant Admin (a platform for the merchants with our Menu Editor and business analytics) and internal Merchant management tools.

Our humble expectations

You might be the one we are looking for if you are an engineer with experience of designing and building top class software. More important than any specific programming language is your expertise in building systems at scale. Experience with Python, Kotlin, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and AWS comes in handy.

Next steps

Join us for a delightful journey! 

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

About Wolt

Wolt is currently active in 23 countries and more than 100 cities, servicing over 7 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.

We’ve raised more than €258M 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.

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.
