Full-time

Do you want to build something completely new from the ground up? Are you ready to take part in defining a direction for a completely new initiative and face the opportunity to build a new real-time solution for 20M+ users? If you said 鈥淵es, yes and definitely yes鈥, then come and join our new team on a mission to build a completely new instant messaging platform.

The quality of communication between our team and our customers and partners is essential as it determines how fast and accurately we can respond to inquiries and solve emerging problems. At Wolt, we currently serve over 20M+ monthly users and they love to chat with us, a lot. 

Since it is early days in the project, you will play an integral part in defining the way the team will work, participate in architecture and ideation discussions and decide on tools and best practices. You鈥檒l collaborate closely with the designer, product manager and other engineers in your team.

We are looking for someone eager to create a scalable, highly available real-time messaging service for our 20M+ users. Challenges include real-time messaging, ensuring that messages are reliably stored and delivered, designing and building a conversations inbox with prioritization, attachment, and push notification systems. That鈥檚 just to start with.

馃搷This role can be based in one of our tech hubs in Helsinki, Berlin or Stockholm, or you can work remotely anywhere in Finland, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, and Estonia. Read more about our remote setup here. If you live outside of these countries - not to worry! We currently provide relocation support to help you make your way to Finland or Sweden.

Our humble expectations

To thrive in this team, you'll need a strong foundation working on backend solutions using Node.js and Typescript. It's great if you consider yourself flexible, adept at working with different languages and technologies depending on the problem we face. However, for this role, having robust Node.js backend skills would be highly beneficial.

We value experience with high traffic and high-performance projects, along with a good knowledge of NoSQL databases like MongoDB, Cassandra, Riak, or similar. Additionally, having expertise with Kafka, or other messaging systems as well as Kubernetes and AWS would be valuable as we rely on these technologies for our projects.

If you have prior experience working on real-time projects like chats, multiplayer games, signaling servers for voice/video communications, or breaking news providers, we would be thrilled to hear about it. Your insights into building reliable clients and backends that cater to our customers' needs will undoubtedly be a valuable asset to our team.

Next steps

The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so make sure to apply as soon as you realize you really, really want to join us!

The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and DoorDash RSUs. The latter makes it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you鈥檒l own a piece of the pie.
