🔭 Our mission & vision

Job Description

At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious goal: to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste.

As the world’s largest food waste-fighting app, we connect stores that have unsold, surplus food with consumers who buy and enjoy it. Our community of over 71 million users has saved more than 193 million meals from going to waste across 17 countries - but there’s still a lot more we want to achieve.

Globally, more than one-third of all food is wasted, and climate experts agree that combating food waste is one of the most important things we can do to address the climate crisis. For us, it’s simple: the bigger we get, the better placed we’ll be to make a huge difference. That means we’re looking for talented people with diverse skills and backgrounds to add to our rapidly growing team - and that is where you come in!  We’re looking for a French speaking Sales Intern to join our team in Lausanne and support the development of Too Good To Go!
