🔭 Our mission & vision

Job Description

First, let us briefly introduce ourselves to you. We are Too Good To Go, a certified and proud B-corp with a clear mission: to inspire and empower  everyone to take action against food waste 🌍. We were founded in Denmark in 2015 and currently operate in 17 countries. In 2018 Too Good To Go started in Belgium where we have grown rapidly together with our users and partners to a team of over 40 aspiring Waste Warriors.

📲 You probably know us from our app, through which we offer leftover food and products from supermarkets, restaurants, suppliers, cafés, bakeries, hotels and specialty stores, among others, to users of our app. In this way, we have already saved about 10 million meals in Belgium and over 177 million* meals from waste worldwide - and that's just the beginning! Because we look beyond the app, whether to households, schools, businesses and entrepreneurs or politicians: we want to inspire and empower everyone to take action together! 

We are proud of what we have achieved so far, but have we mentioned that the problem is huge?  That's why we are looking for an intern to support our sales team and to combat climate change & help us make our mission a reality.

*This equals 86,614 flights around the world in saved CO2 emissions. Now that's making an impact!

Your mission:

You’ll identify potential partners and connect with the best food businesses. Every week, you will either jump on your bike, on the bus or on the train to go "Into the Wild" in the regions of Brussels & Wallonia, 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. 

Above all, in this role, you'll be a hunter. You're hungry to get out there, build connections and grow our community of food waste warriors by signing up restaurants, butchers, bakeries, supermarkets and other local food retailers.

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:

At Too Good To Go you are welcome for who you are, no matter where you come from, or what path you’re on, diversity is a strength! Too Good To Go is dedicated to inclusivity & equal employment opportunities and is an affirmative action employer! All applicants are considered for employment regardless of religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age or disability status.

We encourage you to bring us your unique skills, passion, perspectives and background to help us with the fight against food waste.

You’re fluent in French and you are strong in English. You speak other languages too, cool! That's always 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

Perseverance is your middle name: once you’ve started working on an opportunity, you won’t stop until it is qualified and converted to a yes. Rather than sitting and waiting to see what happens, you take the bull by the horns and don’t take rejection personally

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 represent our movement with passion and can’t wait to get out there to make an impact every day!

You won the high school science fair and invented a self-cleaning raclette machine. Just kidding. But you are the right amount of crazy, and you enjoy sharing your quirkiness & talents with your coworkers.

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…

A unique opportunity to work in a social impact organization (and certified B Corporation) where you get to wake up everyday knowing you’re ACTUALLY making a positive impact on the world! 

The experience of being part of an international company with +1.300 enthusiastic and highly talented waste warriors across 17 countries (and counting) – always ready to share knowledge and support.

Strong personal as well as professional development in an intense and high growth scale-up environment.

An open company culture where you have the freedom and room to unleash your potential 

A strong team culture where successes are celebrated together. 

What we offer

Another bulleted list felt redundant, so we wrote this really long sentence with all the ways we sweeten the deal to work with us, like providing flexible ways of working, great and sustainable benefits with medical & travel coverages, genuinely great co-workers who want to see Too Good To Go and each other succeed, we also focus on your personal & professional growth a lot, a scale up vibe with an established company mission, but most importantly, you’ll have the chance to do something that really matters - every day!


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!

Please note that we only accept applications coming through our platform. No CV or Cover Letter will be accepted by email or Linkedin direct messaging.

A Movement for Everyone

We want to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together. With that mission, it’s only natural that we want to build a diverse and inclusive team of highly capable individuals who are passionate about doing things in a better way. We strongly believe we all excel and are more creative when we’re allowed to be ourselves, and we’re committed to a culture where all of us belong.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit and business need. If you need reasonable accommodation at any point in the application or interview process, please let us know.
