We are Too Good To Go, a certified and proud B-corp with a clear mission: inspire and motivate everyone to take action against food waste 🌍. The movement against food waste was founded in Denmark in 2015 and that was only the beginning: currently we are active in 17 countries! In the Netherlands we started our journey in 2017 and almost 6 years later our team consists of more than 60 'Food Heroes'. Since 2024 we joined forces with the Belgium market and we now concur food waste as one international BENE team. With more than 6.5 million app downloads in the Netherlands and Belgium combined and more than 28.000 partners, we are working hard towards a world without food waste. In 2023, we were even named the most inspiring organisation in the Netherlands for the fifth time in a row!

📲 You probably know us from our app, where we offer leftover food and drinks from supermarkets, restaurants, suppliers, cafes, bakeries, hotels and specialty stores to users of our app. We have already saved more than 21 million meals from the bin in the Netherlands. Worldwide we saved more than 250 million meals, which is the CO2 equivalent of the annual emissions of 54,000 Dutch people. Now that's making an impact! But we are more than an app: whether it concerns households, schools, companies or politics: we want to inspire everyone to take action!

To combat climate change and save our planet, we must make our mission a reality. That is why we are looking for an ambitious Key Account Manager for the Dutch market who inspires, motivates and supports our retail partners in the fight against food waste.

Your mission

It is your mission to make more impact and help change the retail world for the better. A big mission, but you are not alone!

Your role:

  • You help to facilitate the roll out of new customers and growth initiatives. From creating the accounts in our system to training of shop floor staff, virtually or on location.
  • You will support marketing and executional related projects. For example, you coordinate the making of an instruction video or manual, work on a “milestone board” for a partner press/socials release to showcase their success.
  • You make sure that administrative tasks are ticked, customer and partner complaints are handled smoothly and that regular service calls to our partner’s outlets are made.
  • You will visit shop floors on a monthly basis and learn first hand what partners' challenges are and think about how this can be improved.
  • You will use the knowledge you gain from monitoring dashboards, shop floor operations and other data points to “feed” the KAM’s in their decision making. This in order to improve the overall execution and performance.
  • You will visit the HQ of our retail partner together with the KAM in order to learn, grow and advance the projects you are working on.

  • You ask the right questions, are an active listener hence you know what our customers want and how you can help them.
  • You are fun and easy to work with, you are a real team player.
  • We are a fast paced organisation, you are able to deal with ambiguity, be creative and think outside of the box.
  • You are a steady and organised person, a pillar of strength. People can rely on you.
  • You show eagerness and willingness to learn and grow. Your ability to self reflect is a great stepping stone to develop in this role and your future career within Too Good To Go!

Our values:
