Meet the team: Olivier Hollesen, Operations Manager Denmark 🇩🇰


Hej Fra Olivier Hollesen 👋🏻
🌎 Wolt Country: Denmark
💼 Current role: Operations Manager
💙 Joined Wolt in March 2019


Tell us about what gets you out of bed every morning. What is the most interesting thing about working at Wolt and about the work you do?
The thing that really gets me out of bed every morning, is the constant development, movement and growth we are experiencing. Being able to work together with a kick-ass team where you feel the heat of countless Wolt hearts beating for this unique journey, while constantly feeling the genuineness of wanting to improve the experiences for our customers and partners 🙌🏆

What keeps you productive and motivated throughout the day? 🤓
Getting up early with a “head start” to the day and later throughout the day seeing the endless amount of wins my colleagues are adding to the pile of accomplishments for the week 💪

‘Willingness to learn’ is a Wolt value – What did you learn recently that significantly impacted your work?
Wow, not an easy question! 🙂 I feel I learn something every day to be honest. Being it a practical thing, a technical aspect of the operation, how to be a better leader or just how to be more effective with my time. But recently I guess I have learnt even more about the value of planning ahead and not only solving the challenges in front of you, but also the ones there will be when you are growing at the rates we are ⏩

During your time at Wolt, what is something that you are most proud of?
I am most proud of the team, the passion and the heart they put into everything we do! Just a perfect mix of hard work, love and focus on creating the ultimate experiences for our customers and partners 💙

Why did you join Wolt and what makes you stay at Wolt? 
I joined Wolt back in the days for three reasons…
1. Looking for a rocket that might have a chance to take off, while being a rocket where I would be able to implement some of my own thinking 🚀
2. Getting closer to the operational part of a company where your work and decisions would have a direct daily impact (in Denmark we call it “hånden på kogepladen” ) 🔥 and lastly;
3. Getting to work even more closely with people.

Well, we are definitely on board of a rocket ship with a unique history and future journey. We in Operations do have a direct impact how we perform and grow. I do get to work with work together with a dedicated, diverse and energetic team, while doing our best to create great opportunities for more than 4000 hard working courier partners! So I guess that is that makes me stay 🙏

What advice would you give to someone who wants to join Wolt?
Apply!⏳ You should definitely use some time to understanding what role could suit you best, keep your eyes out on all new positions on our site and lastly use energy on the application – we value candidates who put an effort into understanding our company, our values and the specific role.

Which Wolt country is on the top of your bucket list and why? 🌏
It has to be Japan! Beautiful beaches, big city experiences and some solid skiing – and most importantly some great and kind people 💙🎌

And finally, what is your ‘must try’ dish on Wolt?
Awww only one “must try”?? Well, you would have to try a Green Curry from Kiin Kiin Aroiidee or maybe a Bahn Mi from District Tonkin 🍜🥖
