As the winner of Fast Company’s 2021 World Changing Ideas Award, our dream is a planet with no food waste. 

Too Good To Go is the app powering the world’s #1 marketplace for surplus food. Our app connects consumers to delicious, unsold food from local cafes, restaurants and grocery stores, such as pastries, fresh produce, sushi, pizza and more, which would otherwise be thrown away at closing time. Founded in 2016, we’ve already saved over 113 million meals across 17 countries. 

Since we launched stateside in September 2020, we have expanded to 12 major U.S. cities and over 1.5 million Americans use the app.  We are proud of what we have already achieved, and are just getting started in our U.S. journey. 

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but did we mention the issue is huge? We are expanding our team as we speak. And that’s where you come in:

We’re looking for an exceptional PR Specialist to join the superstar team at Too Good To Go!



Sounds like your kind of mission? Here is what it will entail:

We're looking for an enthusiastic, dedicated and self-driven PR Specialist to drive pitching efforts regionally and nationally, targeting numerous outlets in the F&B, lifestyle and B2B realm, as well as those that cover the intersection of tech, climate and business. 

This role will report to the PR and Marketing Manager and be a part of Too Good To Go’s close-knit, dynamic and agile U.S. marketing team. This is a unique opportunity to gain in-house experience, while maintaining the fast-paced nature of an agency, i.e. writing tailored, targeted pitches, regular check-ins with the marketing and leadership team, sharing relevant industry news internally, etc. 

While we have many organic stories to tell, we also want the PR Specialist to be proactive and creative in how we draw attention to America's massive food waste issue, drive awareness to our app as a solution and communicate our impact against climate change

  • Help build, nurture and own relationships with contacts in Too Good To Go’s master media database
  • Serve as day-to-day contact for inbound media requests
  • Regularly draft and send pitches/press releases/media alerts timed to company initiatives and larger marketing campaigns
  • Write tailored pitches and conduct outreach regularly - mail merging is not our go-to method!
  • Proactively bring new pitch angles + news hijacking opportunities to the table
  • Work in collaboration with other PR specialists to streamline media efforts across all of our markets

Why you are the Food Waste Warrior we’re looking for:

  • Significant experience in a PR role. Experience with an agency is highly valued!
  • A natural storyteller and good copywriter
  • Excellent understanding of the media landscape and how to make the most out of a story, both nationally and regionally 
  • An existing network of media and press contacts is also highly valued!
  • Brilliant communication skills and the ability to translate ideas into PR tactics
  • Strong news sense, able to advise the team on what will and won’t make it in media
  • Ready to roll up your sleeves with a tenacious approach to getting our story told
  • 100% target-oriented and resourceful, with a positive, flexible mindset
  • A deep interest in food waste and sustainability 

This position requires employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 unless you are granted a medical or religious exemption.

Our values:

  • We fight together: Food waste is a big beast to fight. We can do it if we fight together as Waste Warriors with no ego. We believe in a #oneteam.
  • We raise the bar: We always push for more. We work smart, smash barriers and elevate one another.
  • We keep it simple: Our ambitions are bold but our solutions are simple.
  • We build a legacy: We’re proud of the change we’re driving. 
  • We care: We always look out for each other. Caring is also about the way we do business. We do the right thing. 

Benefits

  • 100% Employer paid health coverage options for employee (includes medical EPO plan, dental, and vision)
  • 50% Employer paid health coverage options for your family
  • 401(k) plan to help save for your future
  • Pre Tax Commuter Benefits Program
  • Generous Vacation Package of 20 days + 9 paid company holidays
  • Flexible Spending Account 

If you still need more convincing…

  • A rare opportunity to work in a social impact company (and certified B Corporation!) where you get to wake up every day knowing you’re achieving positive change.
  • The experience of being part of an international company with 1400+ enthusiastic and highly talented teammates across 17 countries – always ready to share knowledge and support!
  • Strong personal as well as professional development in an intense and high-growth scale-up environment.
  • An open company culture where you have the independence and room to unleash your creativity.
  • A strong team culture where successes are celebrated together.

A Movement for Everyone
We want to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together. With that mission, it’s only natural that we want to build a diverse and inclusive team of highly capable individuals who are passionate about doing things in a better way.
