Engineering

Tallinn, Estoniaย ยท Remote

Full-time

Are you interested in being part of building a service that is unique to the tastes of our over 20 million users? Would you like to be in the midst of it all, learning, growing, and expanding into new verticals together with us? Does working with Scala and building cool stuff from scratch sound like something youโ€™d like to do? If the answers to all 3 questions are โ€œyesโ€, then great news since Wolt is looking for multiple Scala Backend Engineers to join different engineering teams across our Courier Group! 

Courier Group consists of several amazing teams (10, to be exact) who are on a mission to elevate the customer experience, optimize courier partnerships, and build the logistics platform of the future. In this group, Scala is our bread and butter with some Python and even C++ sandwiched in-between the backend). We strive to always keep our Scala stack up-to-date by actively using modern ecosystems such as Cats Effect and ZIO. We have a very active Scala community who regularly exchanges best practices and you can read more about why and how we use Scala in our engineering blog.

So if youโ€™re into functional programming and would like to be surrounded by like-minded people, we have a lot to offer - we hope you join us for the ride! ๐Ÿš€ 

๐Ÿ“This role can be based in one of our tech hubs in Helsinki, Stockholm, or Berlin (her we have a hybrid setup) or you can work remotely anywhere in Finland, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, and Estonia.

Our humble expectations

๐Ÿ‘‰ You have solid experience designing, building, and integrating quality software (microservices) in modern Scala on a large scale within a complex domain.

๐Ÿ‘‰ You have strong technical leadership skills.

๐Ÿ‘‰ You have knowledge of AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, observability (Data Dog or similar tools) and data storages, both SQL and noSQL databases.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Your stakeholder management skills are excellent. 

๐Ÿ‘‰ Youโ€™re a dedicated person who is pragmatic with a positive attitude, who doesn't shy away from going outside of their comfort zone, and demonstrates curiosity and willingness to keep continuously learning.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Youโ€™re comfortable working with real-world data and its different nuances.

Next steps

๐Ÿ’ฏ Overall our product organization consists of a team of over 800 people at Wolt. We aim to build none other than the best-in-the-world engineering team here.

๐Ÿ’™ Youโ€™ll get to work in a company culture where we take ownership beyond the obvious, do common things uncommonly well, we think big but stay humble, do right by people, we treat others kindly and justly, recognise that if we donโ€™t learn, we wonโ€™t stay still but fall behind, and keep in mind that Luke was Yodaโ€™s greatest achievement.

๐Ÿ™Œ Join us for an exciting journey! The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and DoorDash equity. The latter makes it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie.
