About the Team
The Regional Analytics Team at Wolt focuses on solving country & region specific operational challenges and is tasked with “hitting the plan” for specific countries. To do this, the team works to understand the underlying drivers of growth at the market level and identifies the best opportunities to have an impact.
Data Scientists at Wolt work to uncover insights and turn them into relevant recommendations, driving decisions for the entire organisation. On the Regional Analytics team we are focused on understanding opportunities for growth in the business and connecting the dots between long term strategic planning and highly practical near-term actions to deliver results and build toward a preferred future state.
This team partners closely with Regional Strategy & Operations teams to guide measurement and tactical decision-making using advanced analytics as we expand the Wolt platform across the globe.
