Hey, you look like you might be our new  Category Manager - Wolt Market

Procurement & Supply Chain

Copenhagen, Denmark


Do you have a strong interest in category management with a great eye for detail? Do you want to work in a high growth tech company with an extremely ambitious team, redefining grocery shopping? If this sounds like you, then we’d love to chat!

Role background
Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. In 2017, Wolt operated in 4 countries and 10 cities across the Nordics. Fast forward to today, we’re a team of 10,000+ people in 27 countries and over 500+ cities, servicing over 36 million registered users. As the platform economy is changing the ways consumers connect with restaurants and retailers, we're seeing a huge opportunity to be the industry leader with the amazing teams we have built globally.

The role you are looking at is a part of Wolt Market - our very own grocery stores that deliver unprecedented convenience and world leading customer experience. People across Denmark can order their groceries and have them delivered to their doorstep in lightspeed.

We are looking for a strong Category Manager to join our category team in Denmark. You will continue to grow our assortment, our trading plan (pricing, promotions), build relationships and business plans with our retail partners and manage category performance in collaboration with the team. 

As a Wolt Market Category Manager you have ownership of category performance across ambient, fresh and frozen food as well as non-food categories. You own the assortment, trading plan and all supplier relationships for selected categories. You will have to work closely with our stores to ensure that we have the right assortment at every location, and with our supply chain specialists to ensure that we are always in stock, as well as with our retail partners to ensure we are constantly optimising our trading performance. You will also work closely with data teams to define and develop all necessary reporting, data models, tools and products to drive category performance in local stores.

In this role, you’ll get a lot of help and support on the way, but are also expected to be an amazing independent manager with an exceptional ability to execute every single day.


What you’ll be doing

  • Have full ownership of category performance including forecasting, monitoring, reporting on the business, along with contributing to driving projects and trading strategy to achieve business goals.
  • Define Wolt Market’s assortment and constantly update it at a store level to meet customer needs and optimise order economics.
  • Lead effective negotiations with suppliers to establish joint goals, improve cost structure, and sustainably grow the P&L.
  • Influence the design of the categories, as well as contribute to new product groups and improve the customer experience to deliver growth.
  • Create business plans for new opportunities and develop and execute project plans for the launch of new features, incorporating merchandising and pricing strategies.
  • Work cross-functionally with counterparts across in-stock management, marketing, finance, and retail systems to operate and grow the business.
  • Continually improve and automate manual processes to enable you and your team to scale better as the business grows.


Our humble expectations

  • Experience in a grocery retail, key account management/consulting environment with a proven track record of delivering results. Experience in category management is a strong plus.
  • Strong communication skills and experience negotiating with internal and external stakeholders.
  • Team leadership experience is a strong plus.
  • The successful candidate must be highly analytical, self-starting and thrive in a high energy environment.
  • Ability to think both strategically and operationally with an eye for detail.
  • Fluency in Danish and English.
