Are you looking for your next challenge in Sales? Do you want to take your Career to the next level in a globally scaling tech company? If this sounds like you, then we’d love to chat!
Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. On our mobile app or website, customers can order their favorite meals from our restaurant partners, and either pick their order up or have it delivered by our courier partners. We launched in Germany not long ago, and have since been conquering the food delivery scene step by step.
However, food delivery was just the start. We don’t want to just satisfy our customers’ hunger, but to deliver a wide variety of products and expand our platform to some cool retail shops, supermarkets, flowers, toys, and other exciting products, all referred to as Retail.
To achieve this, are assembling a team of motivated sales superheroes who’ll secure the relationships with the retailers that our customers in Hamburg want to order from. That means your role as the Retail Sales Manager is to be the true ‘hunter’.

What you’ll be doing
- Systematically managing the pipeline of new potential partnerships and building relationships with the identified retailers - ensuring to tailor the approach accordingly to best position Wolt as a partner of choice.

- Having a deep understanding of the competition and various verticals in the market (supermarkets, convenience stores, florists, bakeries, etc.)
- Conducting negotiations regarding partnership terms and continuing ownership of the relationship until the retail development team steps in.
