Head of Culture & Growth

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 fight food waste together. The app already has more than 17 million users across Europe, and we’re growing fast with 13 countries currently active and more coming.

Our people are our greatest asset. We need to keep working on our awesome culture, and make sure we reinforce “how we do things around here” in order to maintain a strong culture that enables our people to thrive.

For our rapid growth, we need a dedicated Waste Warrior to focus on our Culture and Growth. That’s why we are looking for a Head of Culture and Growth (Global) to help us grow and develop our current team of 450+ Waste Warriors. You’ll report directly to the Global Chief People Officer and are supported by a People Growth Specialist.

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. You will help to inspire our leaders and employees, have a deep understanding of what makes teams work well, and will offer a vision for how to make our company culture even stronger. Culture is how we behave, it is what we prioritise and believe in above all else. It’s what makes Too Good To Go different from other places to work.

You know that everyone plays a part in creating and maintaining our culture, but to stay fit we need to train and work on specifying the behaviour that secures a successful performance. You will help us align our core values by translating them into everyday practices.
