Help us create the future of food

This map shows all of the location updates we've received from our courier partners during a set time period. Combined, they draw an accurate map of Helsinki!

Would you like to have an epic summer while having an impact in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people? We are looking for enthusiastic minds to help us build up Wolt products for everyone involved: our 1.5 Million+ customers, 3,500+ restaurants, and 10,000+ courier partners. The search is on for our Engineering Interns of 2019!

Wolt is more than just a food delivery operation – in fact we are built upon a solid foundation of state-of-the-art technology. Our internal tooling enables us to ramp up new cities efficiently and provide excellent customer service, our own logistics platform allows us to optimise our couriers’ work to get you the food you want as fast as possible, and our restaurant platform allows restaurants to offer exciting food experiences for our customers in an optimal way.

And of course our award-winning mobile applications as well as allow for easy and delightful customer experiences and efficient fixing of hunger.

Join us for a delightful journey!

This year we are hiring Engineering Interns to help us make a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people that use Wolt products. We want you to bring in fresh ideas and passion for food and technology – we’ll provide the rest!

We will tailor the internship to suit your situation. You’ll be working with one of our awesome teams where your existing skills will find their best match, and the internship period can be adjusted based on your availability. We do hope you’d be able to work with us for 3-6 months at least. The internships are located at our HQ, in Helsinki.

We offer a paid internship and a great opportunity to secure longer term employment with Wolt. Many of our Engineering Interns from last year are now working for us part-time alongside their studies, or have stayed on as full-time engineers.

Our platform makes all the couriers run on time

Everything is better with Vim and 4 way split

When the order arrives to our system, our fully automated logistics platform is responsible for connecting the customer, restaurant, and the courier to form the most optimal experience for all of them – in real time. The problems our platform solves range from how to optimize which courier should pickup and deliver which orders and the order in which to complete them, to when the courier will be at the restaurant so we can have the food ready and optimally warm at the right time, and many others.

Our operations team is monitoring and reacting to possible problems (e.g. our courier partner’s car breaks down) in real time through our internal tools. At the same time we communicate to all of our couriers where the next drop off is via our courier partner app built with React Native.

Needless to say the logistic platform, internal tools, and courier partner app have to work seamlessly together so that we can achieve the service level that our customers expect from us.

Our customer apps make the complex look simple

A little delight goes a long way

Deciding what to eat can be hard, so the main task of our customer team is to make it easy and fun. We are very proud of our apps which have won multiple awards for great design. Everything starting from user’s registration and continuing to order tracking needs to be a seamless and well-thought-out experience. The magic behind our apps is focus on small details and making sure that every pixel is perfect.

Most Wolt orders are made through our Discovery view that features great nearby restaurants and has articles about the latest food trends in your city. Restaurants can have daily or weekly specials and other campaigns, like free delivery. The mission of our marketplace team is to keep it running and make Wolt a great place both for restaurants and customers. Behind the scenes we are constantly working on new ways for our users to discover food, like personal recommendations.

Technology can be complex and it requires skill to hide that behind a beautiful user interface. In Wolt’s Customer and Marketplace teams you will have a possibility to work with top Android, iOS, Web, and Backend developers to solve very interesting problems. It is not always easy, but it sure is rewarding. We have awesome customers (e.g. check Wolt & Friends FB group) who love our apps and are not afraid to give feedback how to make things even better.

How is it to work at Wolt?

We work in small teams with high ownership, with each team focusing on a key area of the Wolt product stack. Each and every one of our product team members has a say in where we are going and what solutions we implement. We work with a passion, but we haven’t forgotten how to have fun along the way!

If you don’t take our word for it (yet), you can read the thoughts of Kerkko, one of our interns from 2018, from his blog post called “Shipping without bullshitting”.
