Head of Sales

Stockholm, Sweden

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 a third of all the food produced

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 37 million meals saved.

We are just at the start of our Swedish journey… and that’s where you come in! We are building our team there as we speak and we want YOU to be part of this amazing adventure.
