People & Culture Manager

Copenhagen, Denmark

Too Good To Go is the world's number 1 app for fighting food waste. Why is that important? 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 mission is to inspire and empower everyone to take action against food waste. The app already has more than 13,6 million users across Europe, and we’re growing fast with13 countries currently active and more coming. We’ve just been named “Europe’s hottest startup 2019”.

But here’s what really matters: we’re starting to make a real impact, so far through the app we’ve saved more than 20 million meals from the bin - that’s more than 50 thousand tons of CO2 saved!

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved but the issue is huge and in order to live our mission, we know we need to be more than just an app. In fact, the biggest resource we have to keep us going and become better every day is our people. We need to not only keep working on our awesome culture, but also make sure that our Waste Warriors get all the support they need in order to keep up the good fight.

That’s why we are looking for a People& Culture Manager to help us grow and develop our current team of 100 Waste Warriors (currently - we’re onboarding new people pretty much every week!) in our Danish office. That means that you’ll be working with both the Danish team (25 people) as well as the Global one (75 people). You’ll report directly to the Global Chief People Officer.

No matter what we do, we are above all a people-driven company. So if you’re our dream candidate, you’ll be someone who is passionate about our mission and incredibly growth-minded. What does that mean? Just as our Waste Warriors work tirelessly to inspire and empower everyone outside the company, so you will help inspire our team leaders and help make our company culture even stronger.

This is a key role - it all starts with our people, so be ready for an adventure!
