Key Account Expert
Sales - Paris, France
1/3 of the food produced in the world is wasted. We are on a mission to fix that.
Too Good To Go is the world's number 1 app for fighting food waste. We reduce food
waste by making surplus food from any food stores available to citizens. The magic of
Too Good To Go has been spreading rapidly across Europe, with over 8,5 million meals
saved in 9 countries to date.
We have big, big plans to grow rapidly and build an always stronger and bigger team of
the most engaged and talented Waste Warriors.
The biggest part of our team consists on growing supply - increasing the number of
partners saving meals on Too Good To Go. We therefore need your sales skills and
expertise to move from 5000 partner stores in France today to more than 100 000
potential future partners. So how do we do that? That is where we need the hunger and
experience of a Key Account Expert to join us!
Reporting directly to our Head of Sales, you will join the french 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!!
