At Too Good To Go, we dream of a planet without food waste.
Imagine if there was something we could all change today that would reduce global warming by 8%. So much food waste contributes to the climate crisis, and yet we continue to waste a third of all food produced in Europe.
We are on a mission to change this and are rapidly expanding in Belgium. Our app connects businesses with unsold food and consumers who are willing to buy at a discounted rate has grown exponentially since 2016, becoming the largest in Europe, with over 45 million users and over 94 million meals saved.
We're proud of what we've accomplished so far, and we're just at the beginning of our social impact company's journey!
Sounds like your kind of mission, but what does it entail?
As a Business Developer, you will identify potential partners and get in touch with the best food companies (restaurants, butchers, bakeries, supermarkets and many more). Every week, hop on your bike, on the bus or on the train to convince new potential partners to join the food waste movement, or work from our amazing office in Ghent (which is just a 10-minute walk from St Peter's Station) and work onboard new partners on the phone.
You'll represent and pitch Too Good To Go with clarity and passion, showing the food business owners you come across how Too Good To Go is a win-win-win solution. You'll train the partners you've brought on board and make sure they become top ambassadors of the food waste movement!
Are you the Waste Warrior we are looking for?
You are fluent in Dutch and you are strong in English. The more languages you speak, the better! It has more!
You have experience or a strong interest in sales and/or business development
You're a great talker (and a better listener)
Perseverance is your middle name: once you start working on an opportunity, you don't stop until it's qualified and turned into a yes. Instead of sitting around and waiting to see what happens, take the bull by the horns and don't take rejection personally.
You take the opportunity to knock on doors and visit potential new partners
You have no fear of the phone and have the tenacity to keep trying when the going gets tough
You're eager to learn about new ways to do sales and other soft skills
You are a team player! You like to take care of your team and be inspired and motivated by your team members
You have a passion for reducing food waste and a sustainable lifestyle
Food waste is something we win together: food waste is a big beast to fight against. We can do it if we fight together as Food Heroes without ego. We believe in a #oneteam.
We raise the bar: we always go for more. We work smart, break down barriers and lift each other to a higher level.
We keep it simple: our ambitions are bold, but our solutions are simple.
We're building a legacy: we're proud of the change we're making.
We care: we always take care of each other. Caring is also about the way we do business. We're doing the right thing.
