Country Manager

Stockholm, Sweden

Too Good To Go is the world's number 1 app for fighting food waste. Why do we need to do that? Because 1/3 of the food produced in the world is wasted. And that has a huge impact on the health of our planet, 8% of greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste!

Our app has more than 14 million users across Europe, but we’re more than an app. Our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste, so we’re doing all we can to create educational tools, make our knowledge as accessible as possible, find new business solutions and even change legislation to reduce food waste.

We’re growing fast with 13 countries currently active and more coming, and we’ve just been named “Europe’s hottest startup 2019”. But here’s what really matters: through our app, we’ve saved more than 27 million meals from the bin - that’s more than 68 million kgs of CO2 saved!

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but did we mention the issue is huge? So next up, we have big plans to kick off operations in Sweden, and are building our team there as we speak. And we want YOU to be part of this amazing adventure.

As Country Manager, you will be working out of our office in Stockholm (actually, finding the office is your first task) and report directly to our Chief Expansion Officer and the Global Management Team. You will be part of our international team of 13 Country Managers, supported by the whole team of specialists and experts in Europe.

As a Country Manager, you are starting operations from scratch. Armed with a wealth of experience from our 13 other successful launches, it will be your job to build the local team, introduce our mission to Sweden and get as many restaurants, stores, hotels or supermarkets as possible to join our fight.
