Too Good To Go

  • Full Time

To apply for this job please visit toogoodtogo.org.

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

Why do we need to do that? Because 1/3 of the food produced in the world is wasted. And that has a huge impact on the health of our planet, 8% of greenhouse gas emissions come from 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. But we’re more than an app: we are a certified B Corporation and our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to take action against food waste, so we’re doing all we can to create educational tools, make our knowledge as accessible as possible, find new business solutions and even change legislation to reduce food waste.

We’re growing fast, with our community of 35 million users in 15 countries saving more than 68 million meals from going to waste – that’s more than 170,000 tonnes of CO2e saved! But there’s still a lot more we want to achieve.

That means we’re looking for talented people with diverse skills and backgrounds to add to our rapidly growing team. That is where you come in: we’re looking for an exceptional Content Specialist to join us in our London office.

You will unleash your creativity, design and video skills on creating content that engages, educates, and motivates people to get involved in the food waste movement.
