Our analytics team helps us understand our business

Wolt acts as a real-time marketplace connecting customers, restaurants, and courier partners. As you can imagine, we collect a ton of data from multiple sources and make it actionable by tuning our operations and building new product features.

We are building data products that help enhance the user experience of our customers and partners, as well as help create a deeper understanding within the company of the economics and dynamics of the different cities we operate in. How do we do all this? We have an open data culture and work every day to improve the way we store and utilize our data using a variety of tools to get the job done.

Wolt’s analytics team offers you a unique opportunity to upgrade your skills of impacting the business via analytics.

The role scope

We're looking for someone to help maintaining and developing further our data flows and new products built around them. As we're leaning towards implementing more real-time use cases and pipelines we value production experience with CDC and Kafka. However, we think you could come from a very varied background... And this is why:

You could be a (former) backend developer who would like to work exclusively with data pipelines and technologies related to storing and processing data flows. You'd need to have an interest towards building applications on top of Kafka streams and machine learning. You'd need to have mad skills with python programming though to make it easier on you.

You can also be someone quite experienced with Kafka and Airflow/Luigi in production that would like to work on new end to end data products.

We need you to take ownership and be willing and capable of growing above and beyond what you are now. You'll be working with the newest technologies, so we hope you are not too set in your ways of working but are excited in experiencing and learning the new.
