Key Account Manager
1/3 of the food produced in the world is wasted. We are on a mission to fix that.
Too Good To Go is a mobile app which reduces food waste by making surplus food from cafes, restaurants and supermarkets available to users. Our users purchase food through the app, collect locally and enjoy knowing they are saving food, money - and the planet!
Too Good To Go is scaling fast across Europe (we are in 10 countries already) with over 10M meals saved to date (that is over 20000 tonnes of CO2 emissions saved!). We have big, big plans and we want you to be part of them. We are now building our Italian team and looking for hardworking, hungry sales people to come and join our Waste Warrior tribe.
Reporting directly to our Country Manager, you will join the Italian sales team to accomplish this ambitious mission and also become part of our Waste Warrior tribe of 200+ employees around Europe.
Be ready, this is an adventure: tough but exciting!!
