Senior Data Engineer

Techaccessibility_flag_label_translation FranceParis, FranceApply now

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, the Too Good To Go Platform, 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 in several countries. 

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 78 million registered users and 197,000 active partners across 17 countries, have together already prevented 257+ million meals from going to waste - avoiding over 634,000 tonnes of CO2e!

The Role

We are looking for a Senior Data Engineer to be a part of our Product Teams that define, build and deliver our product features. Working in a product team means you will work towards specific outcomes with the freedom and responsibility to figure out the best route to achieve them together with the other Engineers and Product members of the Team.

Your mission will be to help refine, design, implement, deliver and maintain various product features. You will be one of several developers, working as part of a multidisciplinary team and will bring your knowledge and expertise to the table. 

As a Senior Data Engineer, you will actively support your engineering lead in delivering a quality, maintainable and international top-class product, whilst being a role model for less-senior team members, by taking responsibility for problems and using your expertise to identify the right solutions.

    •   Aggregate raw data into precomputed tables for dashboards and KPIs. We have two kinds of dashboards, one internally facing & one for our partners.

  • Be an inspirational member of the team, all working towards building the best long-term product

  • You will act as a problem-solver and owner, always keeping in mind the bigger picture

  • Simplify things and break down what looks hard into smaller digestible pieces:

  • You know that the devil is in the details and you enjoy looking for and fixing those small errors that can create inconsistencies

What we offer

  • An opportunity to have a huge impact, knowing what you help design will be used daily by hundreds of thousands of store employees daily, enabling them to save millions of food items per day.

  • We trust in our employees and encourage an autonomous environment that provides several opportunities for employees to contribute, develop and take ownership of their work in a way that works for them.
  • To be part of an international company, with over 1,200+ colleagues across 17 countries that are on the same important mission. We are a fun bunch of ~100 colleagues in the Paris office.
