Senior Software Engineer Frontend

Company: toogoodtogo

Location: Paris Paris France

Posted on: May 26

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

More than 40% of all food produced in the world is wasted and retailers lose between 1-3% of their annual sales due to food waste, all of this waste has a huge impact on the health of our planet, with 10% of greenhouse gas emissions coming from food waste.

The Retail Technologies teams at Too Good To Go are working on our new software solution used directly by Retailers to track and redistribute surplus food seamlessly. This B2B app, connected to our consumer marketplace, helps stores better manage expiry dates by; detecting products that are about to expire, recommending what to do with them, and facilitating their redistribution (via discounting for in-store customers, donations to charities, or sales on the marketplace). This business app is already used by tens of thousands of store employees every day, and soon to be hundreds of thousands by the end of the year.

Were 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 solution - such as our Retail Technologies offering, and influence legislation to help reduce food waste.

We are growing fast, with a community of 77 million users in 17 countries. Together, we have saved more than 220 million meals from going to waste since we started - but theres still a lot more we want to achieve.
