Hey, you look like you might be our new  Operations Team Lead


Baku, Azerbaijan


Role background

We have launched our services in Azerbaijan in the summer of 2019, and have since been conquering the food delivery scene, step by step, by launching in cities including Baku, Sumgait, Ganja, and Lankaran. Due to the rapid growth, we are now looking for an Operations Team Lead to join our Operations Team in Baku.

In the Operations Team, we focus on our courier partners: We ensure the right amount of courier partners to meet the order demand by constantly developing courier partner satisfaction and smooth, scalable processes. 

As an Operations Team Lead, you will play a huge part in ensuring that our courier supply size is moving in the right direction, while each courier partner gets the right help, support, and a world-class experience throughout their Wolt journey. Recently, we launched a front office responsible for onboarding new courier partners and providing them with in-person support, while also focusing on the level of service provided by courier partners on the platform. Within this role, you will be fully responsible for the smooth and effective operations of that office.

This will require both people management and analytical skills, getting your hands dirty and working well together with your Operations Manager, as well as the rest of your country team. As courier onboarding is a big part of the operations, you will also have a substantial courier supply forecast and planning responsibility.

In this pursuit, we aim to create the World’s best courier experience by optimizing processes, bettering content, and assuring that we have as little friction as possible.

What you’ll be doing:  

  • Courier onboarding - As an Operations Team Lead, you will have to manage and coordinate every tiny bit of our courier onboarding from gear handover management to process building.

  • Acquisition - It is a must to create and maintain the best possible onboarding experience for every applicant in our funnel. The experience starts with getting attracted to the possibility of joining Wolt as a Courier Partner, so you will be responsible for creating this experience from the ground up. 
  • Supply planning - Accurate planning is business critical, and our courier supply plan is a key pillar to making plans come true. In your role, you will have to create, follow and supervise courier supply planning on a daily basis. 
  • Data analysis - Following, understanding and analyzing key performance indicators are part of the daily business in our operations. You will have to support your decision making with relevant data, find broken pieces and fields to develop, understand relations and consequences to have proper action points in your role.  
  • Team management - Taking care of a team of superstars in the onboarding & in-person support related roles will be one of your key responsibilities. Our operations will count on you to provide guidance, foster engagement, ensure team wellbeing and supervise performance. 
  • Process development - During our work, our mission is to increase efficiency and reduce manual work as much as possible. To align with this, you will improve our current processes, implement and maintain new ones and create new best practices for our onboarding operations.
  • Inventory Management - You'll manage gear and equipment inventory, including overseeing import processes and maintaining optimal stock levels to support courier operations efficiently.
