Head of Key Accounts

New York, United States

At Too Good To Go, we dream of a planet with no food waste.

Imagine if there was something we could all change today that would reduce global warming by 8%. That’s how much food waste contributes to the climate crisis, and yet we continue to waste 40% of all the food produced in the US.

We’re on a mission to change this and are building our New York and Boston teams now!

Our app connecting businesses with unsold food, and consumers willing to buy at a discounted rate has grown since 2016 to become the biggest in Europe, with over 22 Million users, and more than 36 million meals saved.

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but we are just at the start of our US journey...

Your mission

We are looking for an experienced, dedicated and self-driven Head of Key Accounts with a passion for tackling food waste. You will report to the Regional Director East Coast and will be pivotal in driving acquisition and development of key partnerships with hotels, restaurant chains and supermarkets.
