At Too Good To Go, we dream of a planet with no food waste.

Imagine if there was something we could all change today that would reduce global warming by 8%. That's how much food waste contributes to the climate crisis, and yet we continue to waste 32% of all the food produced in Canada.

Our app connecting businesses with unsold food, and consumers willing to buy at a discounted rate has grown since 2016 to become the biggest in Europe and the US, with over 69 million meals saved. 

We're proud of what we've achieved so far, but we are just at the start of our Canadian journey... 

We hope to welcome you to our team towards the end of May.

  • Build and develop the sales team: hiring, training, coaching, and motivating for peak performance.
  • Map the market and develop the sales strategy for your owned geography. 
  • Directly manage a team of Sales Specialists, running weekly/monthly incentives to drive performance and motivation.
  • Coach and develop Sales Specialists through regular field accompaniments.

  • You have an exceptional understanding of how to motivate a team.
  • You have strong experience working and leading in sales. This has exposed you to different sales environments and methodologies that you can draw on to lead Too Good To Go's sales team.
  • You have developed or supported to set up a sales function, ideally in a scale-up, fast-growth business.
  • You are data-oriented and work with KPIs to guide actions.

  • The experience of being part of an international company with 950 + enthusiastic and highly talented teammates across 16 countries (and counting) – always ready to share knowledge and support!
