Ops Recruiter


Studentwork is looking for an Operations Recruiter for our client company Wolt.

Wolt is a venture-backed technology company building the one app for discovering and getting great food in your city – be it for home delivery, takeaway or to the table.

Since launching in Helsinki in 2015, we have expanded to six countries across Europe (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Sweden), achieved more than 500,000 registered users, and partnered with more than 1,000 restaurants. We now plan on expanding further.

We’ve raised €15M in funding from some of the biggest names in European tech, including Kees Koolen, Partner at EQT Ventures and former CEO of Booking.com; Ilkka Paananen, CEO of Supercell; Niklas Zennström, Founder of Skype; and Risto Siilasmaa, Chairman of Nokia.

We've also been fortunate enough to receive some appreciation and recognition for our hard work along the way. Apple gave us their Editors' Choice, Wired named us one of the "Hottest Startups in Europe," Forbes included our CEO Miki Kuusi on its list of 30-under-30 in Consumer Tech, and the Nordic Startup Awards named us Company of the Year.

We plan on expanding further given the success we have found in our existing markets. We are going to be recruiting over 100 new employees both for our product and design team (now ~25 people) and our new operations teams (now ~60 people, some full-time and some part-time) during the next few years.

These recruiter positions are critical to us due to our growth and large need for new recruits, this is why we are looking for recruiter superheros. We offer the possibility to grow within the company and develop into a key figure at Wolt.
