Role background

Wolt is a Finnish technology company founded in 2014 with a mission to transform the way people can order food from restaurants. The People team at Wolt currently consists of 100+ HR, Payroll, and Talent Acquisition professionals located in Helsinki, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tel-Aviv, Tbilisi, Budapest, Zagreb, and Tokyo.
We always strive for global scalability, modern processes, and automation, and therefore we prioritize systems development in every area of the business. With this attitude, during 2021 the People team has launched platforms like Workday, Altshare, and Charles Schwab, while simultaneously beginning the rollout of Quinyx and changing our payroll vendor to ADP.
We are going through rapid growth in our global payroll team, and we are looking for a Payroll Specialist located in Budapest, with an end-to-end understanding of payroll processes and ideally payroll experience from both in-house and outsourced payroll.

  • Deliver a world class employee payroll experience when delivering payroll services and when customers need help, while also resolving any issues that arise with a root cause analysis and corrective action.
  • Work closely with our HR and Finance teams day to day and in all project activities, and ensure that the global design turns into local best practice payroll processes.
  • Supporting our HR team in the hands-on collection, calculation, and entering of payroll data, where not handled within our system integration.
  • Ensure the integrity of payroll data across integrated HR and payroll systems.

  • Act as the SME on our payroll transformation rollout for your countries, drawing current and future needs of payroll in your regions, transferring the data and ensuring that the new design fulfils all local statutory and legal requirements.
  • Support payroll teammates with any side activities with their countries such as data collection, employee queries or off-cycle payments, and when necessary, back up your teammate to deliver payroll services.
  • Create, maintain and improve payroll process documentation.
  • Take ownership of your development plan and collaborate with your Team Lead to achieve your goals.
  • Fulfil any additional tasks as assigned by the Team Lead.
