🔭 Our mission & vision

Job Description

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

40% of all food produced in the world is wasted and retailers lose between 1-3% of their annual sales due to food waste, all of this waste has a huge impact ona the health of our planet, with 10% of greenhouse gas emissions coming from food waste. 

The Retail Technologies team are working on our new software solution that is used directly by Retailers to identify and manage their inventory before it becomes food waste and further extending our expertise and in-store solutions beyond our marketplace supporting stores in managing their unsold and surplus products.

We’re more than an app: we are a certified B Corporation with a mission to empower everyone to take action against food waste, so alongside our marketplace app, we create educational tools, explore new business solutions - such as our Retail Technologies offering, and influence legislation to help reduce food waste.

We are growing fast, with our community 75 million users in 17 countries. Together, we have saved more than 213 million meals from going to waste since we started - but there’s still a lot more we want to achieve.  

The Role

We are looking for Senior DevOps Engineer to build and further enhance our highly scalable infrastructure by creating tooling, automating and improving reliability. 

As a Senior member of the Platform team, you are supporting your Engineering Lead, not only in building secure and globally scalable infrastructure but also being a role model for less-senior team members, by taking responsibility for problems and using your expertise to identify the right solutions.

What you help build will be used daily by our millions of users, our partners, and our internal business stakeholders.

The Tech Stack

Our infrastructure runs on AWS: EKS, RDS, Elasticsearch, and Redshift—all managed with Terraform. We use Jenkins and Github Actions as part of our CI/CD process and Prometheus, Grafana, and Graylog which are used for monitoring and logging.


You will be building and maintaining our infrastructure as code, enhancing our CI/CD process and creating tools to support our engineering teams.

You enjoy making sure that what we build is well-tested and meets expectations on reliability and security at scale.

You get to bring your own opinions and experience when it comes to the technology stack. We’ve kept the legacy systems to a minimum, so there is room to adapt and optimize.

Participate in mentoring, and coaching whilst actively giving and encouraging regular feedback with those around you.

Be an inspirational member of the team, ensuring those around you follow and trust in your actions towards building the best long-term product.

Be responsible by acting as an owner for problems which may arise, unless agreed upon by others, we will count on you to look at the bigger picture, even if this may fall outside of your usual day-to-day.

Think big, we want you to push your limits, and think outside of the box, addressing ways in which we can add scalability to our work.

Simplify things and break down what looks hard into smaller digestible pieces:

Spread your expertise
