We're all about People Experience

Our people mean the world to us. We want everyone to have the best possible experience while working at Wolt – from their recruitment and onboarding right the way through the different stages of their career. 

And so that’s where we come in. 

We’re a global People team and we care deeply about employee experience. Our goal is to become the best partners to our teams – helping our people grow in their own careers while supporting the growth of Wolt as a company. 

While our individual team numbers are now in triple figures, we still have that small team feeling with a ‘builder’ mentality. In other words, we’re not set on traditional ways of working and so there’s always something new to explore and develop.


Our core focuses

Talent Acquisition

We look after the first part in any employee’s journey – the recruitment. Whatever the role and wherever it's located, we're here to make sure we find the right person and deliver the best experience for every candidate!

People Operations

We’re here to ensure our people get the best possible employee experience from the moment they join Wolt to the moment they leave (although we hope people will stay with us for many years)!

People Development

We’re here to support the onboarding and development of every person across Wolt. While we’ve had some good foundations from the earlier days, we’re constantly looking into ways on how we can level up with our people development programs, learning tools and opportunities for career progression – what can be more exciting than that?!

HR Tech

All great People teams need great technology. Our job is to build and maintain the core HR tech to enable forward-thinking processes and ensure compliance. We want to take advantage of our HR tech, enabling more automation and scalability as well as create superb user experiences with modern systems. Modern HR tech such as Workday and Quinyx are at the heart of our tech stack.

Talent Excellence

Want to know what happens when you bring together talent systems, data and marketing? A whole lot of excellence, that’s what! We’re here to support our People team by providing the right tools, analytics and comms to attract, develop and retain our talent.


Of course, our number 1 role is to pay our teammates accurately AND on time, but we have bigger ambitions than that! We want to deliver a world class employee payroll experience, from “how do I get help” to delivering the best tools to access pay records. We also support the business to make smarter decisions with accurate reporting, as well as the less fun but very important role of payroll compliance.

Compensation & Benefits

At the core, we’re here to make sure that people at Wolt are fairly and equitably rewarded in relation to their peers and the external market. In addition, we look for innovative benefits that make sense for our people and make working at Wolt unique.

We’re just getting started

2015 - 2018

In the early stages of Wolt, all People team related matters were handled by our co-founder, Juhani and our first Exec Assistant / Office Manager / all-round superstar, Karo.

We hired our first Head of HR (Matti-Esko, who is now our VP of People) and started to build our HR Ops team to keep up with the rapid pace at which Wolt was expanding.

In January, ‘non-tech’ Talent Acquisition joined the People team from Global Operations, and this brought our first non-Finland based team members in Denmark and Japan. Over the course of the year, we started to build out and structure the different sub-teams to expand our global service. In November, France joined as our first dedicated People Development Lead.

The whole People team began to scale drastically, shifting the service focus to a more ‘local’ approach. Talent Acquisition alone grew from 10 to 30 people, with new hubs built in Germany, Israel and Georgia. Tuuli moved from HR Ops to be our first HRIS person, and Naoaki became our first ‘local’ HR Lead, joining us in Japan.

We hit 100 people globally as the team continued to grow and we continued to build. HR Ops tripled in size as we expanded to each of our markets.  Lynsey joined as our first VP of TA, and as such, our ‘tech’ Talent Acquisition team moved over to the People team. Talent Excellence was officially ‘born’, moving out of Talent Acquisition to become a standalone team. We started to integrate cross-People team systems, while also utilizing automation and AI. Also, Päivi started as the Head of HR Tech taking responsibility for overall architecture and HR tech strategy around our HR solutions.

We’re global and local

We’re a global team with a local touch. As such, there’s a ton of opportunity for collaborating and sharing ideas with people from different cultures and backgrounds, all over the world.

We’re modern

We’re not bound by traditional ways of working and there’s minimal ‘red tape’ – essential when being in a state of hypergrowth. This is a team that’s all about getting things done, but of course we still do things the right way.

We’re both human and tech centric

We believe in keeping the human in human resources. And we also believe that the right technology used correctly can improve the employee experience. It’s all about finding that perfect blend to excite and delight our people.

Hear it from our people

I believe that through daily cultivation with my wonderful colleagues, I am steadily overcoming challenges that would be difficult to solve on my own. Although I have been in human resources for a long time, Wolt has allowed me to still continue to learn. I can't stop being excited!

- Naoaki


Wolt enables me to grow by constantly giving me opportunities to level up! From being the 3rd person in the Talent team, to then building a new recruitment marketing & branding function from scratch - I have been able to chase my goals, challenge myself and learn on-the-go.

- Paris Lay


What we do at Wolt is different from anywhere I have worked before, and I have 8 years experience. The team has such a close collaboration with the engineering team, we all get this sense of transparency within.

For the past 3 years, I have learned a little bit of everything while handling different responsibilities. When I joined there was actually not a TA team as we now know. I went from only sourcing to managing end-to-end recruitment.
