Job description

Company Description

Wolt is a technology company that makes it incredibly easy to discover and get the best restaurants, grocery stores and other local shops delivered to your home or office. Wolt is not just a delivery app – we’re a technology company building a commerce platform to seamlessly connect our millions of customers with thousands of merchant and courier partners, in real-time across 23 countries and 250+ cities. Our apps (iOS and Android) have the industry’s highest ratings, largely thanks to our customer-first-mindset, which shows in how we build products and run operations. In June 2022 we officially joined forces with DoorDash. Combined, we have a presence in 27 countries, 23 of which operate with the Wolt brand and app. Wolt and DoorDash continue largely independently, with Wolt’s name, brand, product, technology and team.

Working in Product Development at Wolt

At Wolt, we’re about getting things done. You’ll probably enjoy it here if you like taking ownership, developing yourself and being around friendly, humble and ambitious people. 

The behind the scenes of Wolt is run by an awesome bunch of over 400+ planners, builders, designers and data crunchers. We call ourselves Product+, as we’re the very core of Wolt’s products, tools and platforms. To build our products, we work in over 40  cross-functional, independent and autonomous teams. Teams are made up of a mix of talented individuals: engineers, designers, data scientists, analysts, and product leads. Each team takes ownership for solving customer problems in the best possible way.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We want to have all sorts of people in our team – people like you and me, and people different from you and me. To be able to work with diverse teammates – when it comes to gender, age, ethnicity, life background, sexual orientation, political views, religion, or any other personal trait – we consciously aim to offer equal opportunity for everyone to work with us. This is because we believe diverse teams make the most thought-through decisions and build things in the most inclusive way.

Join us today to build Wolt together!

Job Description

We are looking for a Product designer to join us on our mission to make it incredibly easy to discover and get the best restaurants, grocery stores and other local shops delivered to your home or office. You'll be working on super interesting and complex projects related to improving the experience for our customers and merchants in Japan for Wolt. You'll be part of the Consumer design team, and work closely with our Japan Product Team.

The Japan product team focuses on small and big wins for the Japanese market. So understanding the market is a huge benefit. You will also closely work with the consumer apps, merchant tools and our operational tooling side, so knowledge of mobile and understanding of the web is preferable.

At Wolt, we are obsessed with details and brilliant user experience, and so should you! As a Product Designer, you'll get to work with some of the best in the industry while focusing on designing great experiences for our users. You're expected to produce production-quality UI designs. At the same time, you spend a part of your time participating in the UX work, including concept and validation. You'll be paired with a UX Designer, and collaborate with a multidisciplinary product management, design, data, and engineering team to deliver thoughtful and polished design work that is world class.

The role is based in Tokyo, where rest of the Japan product team is located – we love to collaborate and work closely together  🌍 


  • Strong expertise in UI Design for digital products – mobile & web design experience is valuable

  • Understanding of local culture and hopefully also japanese language

  • You have an eye for detail and vision for world-class interfaces

  • You have experience working with design systems, with ability to work creatively, building your own components outside of the design system when the experience calls for it

  • You have excellent collaboration skills – you have experience of working together creatively with other designers, and cross-disciplinarily with product managers, engineers, UX researchers and copywriters

  • You are fantastic at communicating your thinking and design decisions – you’re able to get the multiple stakeholders whose attention your work will receive along on the journey with you.

  • Prior experience of working with Figma – you're comfortable using Figma for communicating feature specifications to designers, developers and other stakeholders

We don’t expect you to tick all of these boxes – if you are passionate about the role please apply! 💪🏼

Additional Information

The position will be filled as soon as we find the right person, so feel free to apply as soon as you feel like hearing more about the position and potentially joining Wolt! Please kindly make sure to include your portfolio with your application!
The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and equity. The latter makes it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie.
