Job Description

30% of food produced is wasted. We are on a mission to change that.

Too Good To Go is a social impact company that reduces food waste by making surplus food from cafes, restaurants and supermarkets available to users. Our users purchase food through an app, collect locally and enjoy knowing they are saving food, money - and the planet!

We’re growing fast with 13 countries currently active and more coming, and we’ve just been named “Europe’s hottest startup 2019”. But here’s what really matters: through our app, we’ve saving one meal per second - currently, that means that more than 24 million meals have been saved from the bin -equalling more than 61 million kgs of CO2 saved!

Sounds like your kind of mission, but what will it entail?

You will join our Franchise Sales team in Ghent to focus on identifying potential partners and creating partnerships with franchised concepts like supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants, etc. You will connect with food business owners all over the country and convince them to join the food waste revolution. You will mostly talk to them on the phone from our office in Ghent, but you will also attend regional meetings to pitch Too Good To Go and connect with several business owners at the same time. You will then follow-up on those connections, onboard and train new partners on our app and make sure they become top ambassadors of the food waste revolution.

Why you are the Food Waste Warrior we’ve been looking for:

  • You are fluent in French and/or Dutch and strong in English. The more languages we speak, the better! You speak Arabic, Spanish, Italian…? It’s a plus!
  • You have experience or a strong interest in sales and/or business development
  • You're a terrific talker (and a better listener)
  • You have zero fear of the phone and have the tenacity to keep trying when things get tough
  • You are awesome in presentations in front of a crowd
  • You are the kind of crazy that needs the right environment to flourish
  • You are passionate about fighting food waste and a sustainable lifestyle

If you still need more convincing…

You will have the chance and opportunity to be a pioneer in a fast scaling international scale-up with a very real environmental and social impact. Next to cultivating an awesome team culture, we will invest in your personal and professional growth by giving you the chance to work with a diverse mix of talented people and participate in different coaching sessions and workshops. On top of that, we will inspire you to be the best version of yourself by giving you the right balance of freedom and structure, and make sure to bring in a good deal of fun by organizing team events and activities.

In order to have the most positive impact, we encourage our team to travel to the office by public transport: we’ll cover your train or bus fees. You like biking? We’ll also provide you with a subscription to shared bikes (Blue-Bike). And you’re into shared cars too? If you get a subscription for Cambio, we’ll cover the cost of an extra insurance!

And yes, meal vouchers are included (8€ per day), as well as yearly eco cheques of 160€. We’ll provide a phone subscription, and we’ll make sure you get the rest you deserve with 26 days of paid holidays.

Most importantly, you’ll have the chance to do something that really matters - every day. Every single partner you bring on board saves meals from going to waste. Bellies, not bins!

We know what you’re thinking… where can you send in your application?

Apply in English with your CV and a motivation letter that tells us why we shouldn't want to live without you for a second longer!

The deadline is “the sooner the better”
