Head of Sales

Warsaw, Poland

At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious goal: to inspire and empower everyone to fight 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 26 million users across Europe, but we’re more than an app. Our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to take action against 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 15 countries currently active and we are a certified B Corporation. But here’s what really matters: through our app, we’ve saved more than 47 million meals from the bin!

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but did we mention the issue is huge? We are expanding our team as we speak. And we want YOU to be part of this amazing adventure.
