Job Description

At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious goal: to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together.

40% of all food produced in the world is wasted. And that has a huge impact on the health of our planet, with 10% of greenhouse gas emissions coming from food waste.

We’re more than an app: we are a certified B Corporation with a mission to empower everyone to take action against food waste, so alongside our marketplace app, we create educational tools, explore new business solutions - such as our Retail Technologies offering, and influence legislation to help reduce food waste.

We’re growing fast: Our community of 96 million registered users and 223,000 active partners across 18 countries, have together already prevented 337+ million meals from going to waste - avoiding over 910,000 tonnes of CO2e!

Too Good To Go is looking for a new Senior Data Engineer to further enhance our existing data infrastructure. You will be a part of our platform team and will be based from our HQ in Copenhagen.
