Hey, you look like you might be our new  Internal Control Specialist


Helsinki, Finland


Are you an experienced finance professional with a solid background in designing and managing internal controls in a complex, fast-moving environment? Does playing a key role in shaping financial processes and key controls in a global tech company sound like your ideal next opportunity? If so, we would love to hear from you!

Role Background

Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. We’ve grown significantly in the last years, expanding our operations from the Nordics to cover 23 countries across Europe and Asia today.

Our Finance team has played a key role in this journey - supporting our global operations from their central Helsinki hub has been no easy feat, but this group of dedicated and motivated professionals have made it seem effortless! 

The world of Wolt is however ever-changing. As we continue to scale our operations globally, we are looking to strengthen our ranks with a highly proficient Internal Controls Specialist to help ensure our increased compliance-related objectives are met while entering the next chapter of our growth story. 

In this role, you will find yourself hands-on developing and shaping Wolt’s working methods and processes. You will have a unique opportunity to realise your vision of leading internal control practices and to have a meaningful and lasting impact by helping design and set up a world-class internal control framework compliant with the requirements across all group markets, including the U.S. (i.e. SOX)

Sounds simple, right?

While the role is key to enable our continued success, and the challenge great, fear not - as you'll not be alone for the ride. In this role, you will work closely with development-oriented finance- and operations experts as well as highly skilled product engineers to make sure we design our processes in ways that are both efficient and scalable while enabling effective internal controls. The environment is complex and challenging, but you will enjoy the thrill of nurturing your own thoughts and ideas into reality, while enjoying the support of our experienced professionals across various teams. 

This is an exciting opportunity to develop internal control in one of Europe's fastest growing tech companies. If you feel like the role matches your experience and you're ready for the next challenge, read on and apply - we're looking forward to meeting you!

Our humble expectations
