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

Too Good To Go is a social impact company, and an ambitious movement to fight against food waste. With our marketplace app, we reduce food waste by making surplus food from cafes, restaurants and supermarkets available to our users. You purchase food through an app, collect locally and enjoy knowing you are saving food, money - and the planet!

We’re growing fast with 15 countries currently active and more coming. But here’s what really matters: through our app, we’ve been saving one meal per second - currently, that means that more than 57 million meals have been saved from the bin - equalling more than 122,000 tons of CO2 saved!

Sounds like your kind of mission? Here is what it will entail:

As a Business Developer, you’ll identify potential partners and connect with the best food businesses (restaurants, cafes, bakeries and many more). Every week, you will either jump on your bike, on the bus or on the train to go and convince new potential partners to join the food waste movement, or work from our awesome office in Ghent (which is just a 10-minute walk from the Sint-Pieters station) and onboard new partners on the phone. 

You’ll represent and pitch Too Good To Go with clarity and passion, and show the food business owners you encounter how Too Good To Go is a win-win-win solution. You will train the partners you’ve brought on board and make sure they become top ambassadors of the food waste movement!

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

  • You’re fluent in French and you are strong in English. The more languages you speak, the better! You speak Dutch, Arabic, Spanish, Italian, Russian…? 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 jump on the opportunity to go knock on doors and pay a visit to potential new partners
  • You have zero fear of the phone and have the tenacity to keep trying when things get tough
  • You’re eager to learn about new ways of doing sales and other soft skills
  • You’re a team player! You like to take care of your team and get inspired and motivated by your team members
  • You are passionate about fighting food waste and a sustainable lifestyle

Our Values:

We fight together: food waste is a big beast to fight. We can do it if we fight together as Waste Warriors with no ego. We believe in a #oneteam.

We raise the bar: we always push for more. We work smart, smash barriers and elevate one another.

We keep it simple: our ambitions are bold but our solutions are simple.

We build a legacy: we’re proud of the change we’re driving. 

We care: we always look out for each other. Caring is also about the way we do business. We do the right thing. 

If you still need more convincing…
