Wolt’s service was launched in Japan in 2020 and since joining forces with DoorDash last year, we now have a product development team locally in Japan focused on unlocking the product challenges provided by the market.
As an Engineering Team Lead you will be leading our enterprise team to make sure that we continue maintaining and building enterprise features, as well as collaborate with other teams to roll out features that are more relevant in Japan. The products are used by not only Japanese consumers but worldwide in 23 countries. We want to delight our users and provide a seamless experience - if you care about the little things, and are bothered by the smallest inconsistencies and bugs, this is the role for you.
Enterprise is hugely important in Japan - in many of our other countries, a large Merchant might have hundreds of venues. In Japan, Enterprise chains such as 7-11 can have over 20,000 stores! This completely changes the way we approach our business relationship and tooling - we need tools and interfaces that support thousands of venues (a simple drop-down won’t do), we need to support their business operations via detailed dashboards, and automate as much of the manual work as possible to make things like menu changes and campaigns manageable. We also work with our DoorDash counterparts in the US to learn as much as possible from what has been built for the US market in the Enterprise space.
The role is based in the Tokyo office and is not a fully-remote role, so while we expect you to be located in the Tokyo area, we provide relocation support to help you make your way to Japan.
⭐ You know what it takes to develop top-quality software and how to support the team to make technical decisions.
💙 You take care of people and achieve ambitious goals together with a servant leadership mindset.
🚀 You are an inspirer, facilitator, and enabler for the team to do what they do best by making personal development plans, hosting regular 1on1s, and participating in recruitment.
💪 You are not afraid to step into action when needed, and most of the time, you are also ready to step back and let the team do its magic.
🛠️ You are a good communicator, willing to serve people outside of your team, and a product-oriented and proactive problem solver willing to bring up issues constructively to the team and the whole Wolt Product team.
😎 You know what it takes to hire excellent engineers for your team, cultivating a safe environment for people to shine and work together.
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’ll own a piece of the pie.
