Introduction

At Flashfood, we are on a mission to reduce the environmental impact of food waste and affordably feed people. We are tackling this gigantic problem together, with a team that believes in authenticity, perseverance, and humility. Flashfood is a mobile platform connecting surplus food directly to its shoppers at massive discounts to reduce food waste. Shoppers see deals on surplus food through their phone, pay through their phone and pick it up in the store. Flashfood is partnered with Loblaw in Canada and is in the process of rolling out with a number of additional grocery partnerships in the U.S. Our team comes from a variety of different industries and backgrounds such as management consulting, finance, and emerging technology, however, we decided it was time to do something different - something that would create a better world for future generations! Our casual and collaborative culture makes us who we are. We have a passion for supporting our community and that starts with our ability to empower our people. We are ambitious and hard working, and are extremely proud of the culture we have created. We communicate openly, and are not afraid to push boundaries. We are a small but mighty team of 50, and you will be trusted to work independently a lot of the time as much of this role can be done remotely. This doesn’t mean you’ll have trouble keeping up though! We’ll always be available to answer your questions and provide feedback.
