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 “Yes, yes and definitely yes”, then come and join our 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 😊
Challenges include real-time messaging, ensuring that messages are reliably stored and delivered, and designing and building a conversations inbox with prioritization, attachment, and push notification systems. And that’s just to start with.
Node.js + Typescript is the main backend programming language of the team, while mobile is built with Swift and Android and frontends are built in React +TypeScript.
As a Team Lead, your role is to inspire, facilitate, and empower your team to excel at what they do best, by running the weekly cycle of the team, making personal development plans, hosting regular 1on1s, working closely with the Product Lead and taking part in recruitment. You'll be at the forefront of driving the development of top-quality software and maintaining effective communication with the larger Wolt Product team.
📍This role can be based in one of our tech hubs in Helsinki or Stockholm, or you can work remotely anywhere in Finland, Sweden and Estonia. Read more about our remote setup here. If you live outside of these countries - not to worry! We provide relocation support to help you make your way to Finland or Sweden.
To thrive in our team, you'll need solid leadership experience collaborating strongly with product teams and business stakeholders. Being flexible and comfortable working with various languages and technologies depending on the task is a big plus. However, previous hands-on software development experience in backend or mobile is needed to succeed in this role. Having strong Node.js backend skills would surely be beneficial to this team.
We appreciate candidates who have worked closely with product teams and senior team members and can handle stakeholder relationships on the business side. Experience with rollouts and fast-paced production environments is essential.
Additionally, having expertise in Kubernetes and AWS would be valuable, as we rely on these technologies for our projects. Your familiarity with these tools will be a significant asset to our team's success.
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.
