Job Description

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 10%. That’s how much food waste contributes to the climate crisis.

We are on a mission to change that - are you with us?

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, with over 83 Million users, and more than 276 million meals saved.

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

We’re looking for an exceptional and passionate Customer Care Team Lead to help us grow and develop our Global Care Team.

This role requires going to our Lisbon office 3 times per week. This position requires travelling to other European cities and the UK up to 6 times per year.

Your role

  • You monitor and manage the workload and the performance of the Care team. You drive the results of your team members where everyone focuses on timely and effective responses to customer enquiries.
  • You maintain the excellent quality of our customer service while inspiring and empowering our customers towards more sustainable behaviour to help us grow our mission.
  • You drive the Care team dynamic and motivation.
  • You are coordinated and aligned with the Associate Director of Care and other teams, to ensure customer feedback and issues are acknowledged and followed up on internally or with partners.

  • You are based (or willing to relocate to Lisbon) and open to come to the office a few days per week!
  • You are experienced in using different CRM tools.
  • You think analytically and are solution-oriented. You are a clear and comprehensive communicator and are able to draw on those skills to set the bar high and get team members to perform at their absolute best.
  • You are a make-it-happen person who is excited to roll up your sleeves – but you also think about the longer-term business implications and requirements.
  • You are highly organized and can build structures and processes that meet business needs.
  • Working somewhere where you can have a social and environmental impact is one of your absolute dreams. Sustainability is a great passion of yours and something that shines through in your professional and personal experiences.
