CLOSED – Business Development Intern – German Speaking

About the role

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

As the world’s largest food waste-fighting app, we connect stores that have unsold, surplus food with consumers who buy and enjoy it. Our community of over 76 million users has saved more than 214 million meals from going to waste across 17 countries – but there’s still a lot more we want to achieve.

Globally, more than one-third of all food is wasted, and climate experts agree that combating food waste is one of the most important things we can do to address the climate crisis. For us, it’s simple: the bigger we get, the better placed we’ll be to make a huge difference. That means we’re looking for talented people with diverse skills and backgrounds to add to our rapidly growing team – and that is where you come in!  We’re looking for a German speaking Business Development Intern to join our team in Zürich and support the development of Too Good To Go! This is a full-time 6-month internship (with possibility of extension to 1 year).
