🔭 Our mission & vision

Job Description

Imagine if there was something we could all change today that would reduce global warming by 10% - That’s how much food waste contributes to the climate crisis, and yet we continue to waste 40% of all the food produced.

Our app connects consumers to surplus food from local restaurants and grocery stores, such as pastries, fresh produce, sushi and more, which would otherwise be thrown away. 

Too Good To Go is looking for a Backend Developer to join our company, working within our Retail Technologies Solution, focusing purely on the FoodMemo platform, to effectively support retailers in reducing in-store food waste. This comes after the exciting announcement that we have recently acquired CodaBene, A French Tech start-up, with the same mission as us; fighting food waste!

You will work to implement a flexible architecture that enables us to connect to our customers’ variety of APIs, deploy necessary APIS for mobile applications/dashboards and monitor full API performance.
