  • Identify and lead ways to accelerate growth of Retail categories and Partners, together with global and local teams 
  • In collaboration with the Product team, further develop our app experience for the retail customers, to take the experience for existing Categories to the next level and expand to new Retail categories.

You will have the opportunity to join a high-performing team with a global mandate on accelerating Retail at Wolt, identify new opportunities at each stage of the Retail Partner lifecycle, analyze impact, and drive decisions based on insights. You’re expected to be an experienced and strong self-starter, who is capable of leading complex projects, equally comfortable in engaging with senior internal or external stakeholders and in diving into the data and details and collaborating with local teams managing the daily Retail  business to remove complexity and unlock growth.
