Join our new Core Machine Learning & Data Engineering team! 
This is a relatively new team we've put together to take our ML efforts to the next level, and to enable an even more data driven Wolt. We are now looking to add a Machine Learning Engineer to join this highly impactful team 💪 
To thrive as a data driven company, we need data to be collected from all areas of the business, in a timely and accurate manner, and for the data to be available for consumption by everyone in the company. The purpose of the Core ML and Data Engineering team is to make Wolt’s data available to the rest of the company as well as to ensure its utilization to maximum value-generating potential through machine learning and data products. The team builds high quality and scalable infrastructure and tooling that makes our company’s data available for our ever-growing user base in an accurate, reliable, discoverable and traceable manner. The team owns the company’s core data logistics, as well as the central data processing and analysis infrastructure. 
The role scope 
In this role you'll be owning our machine learning infrastructure. There is plenty of ground to cover in this area, as we know we need something different from the way we do things now, and you'll be given the reins to drive the project and thus have true impact on how we do things going forward. This will be a team effort, but you'll take ownership of it. The machine learning models themselves are developed in our data science team, and you'll be providing the infrastructure to train, bring to production and monitor and update those models. We're looking for consistency for our ML infrastructure, as well as tools that are easy enough to use for the wider audience in our engineering organization. Part of your duties will also be to help the team with other development tasks where needed. 
We need you to take ownership and lead the project. 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. We are a heavily data run company, and in your role you'll be helping to drive changes that improve Wolt and make it the best product it can be. 
What we expect from you
- Extensive software engineering experience with Python- Experience building ML pipelines/infrastructure- Familiarity with Docker and Kubernetes is a plus
Join us for a delightful journey!
The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and Wolt stock options. The latter make it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie.

About Wolt 
Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. On our mobile app or website, customers can order their favorite meals from our restaurant partners, and either pick their order up or have it delivered by our courier partners.  
We’re currently active in 22 countries and more than 80 cities, servicing over 5 million customers. Our apps (iOS and Android) have the industry’s highest reviews, largely because of our customer-centric approach to how we build our products and operations. For example, our customer service team responds in a matter of seconds, in the customer’s own language.  
We’ve raised €258M in financing from renowned U.S. and European based investors, such as ICONIQ Capital, 83North, EQT Ventures, Highland Europe and Goldman Sachs Growth Equity. We've also been fortunate enough to receive some appreciation and recognition for our hard work along the way: Apple selected Wolt’s app as their Editors' Choice, Wired named the company one of the "Hottest Startups in Europe," Forbes included our CEO Miki Kuusi on its 30-under-30 in Consumer Tech list, and the Nordic Startup Awards named Wolt Company of the Year. In 2020 we were recognized as the fastest growing tech company in Europe by the Financial Times.
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. 
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!
