Ankorstore

Tech team

The purpose of the Tech team is to build out the Ankorstore platform in coordination with the Product team to make life for independent retailers and brands as simple as possible.

Their team is a fully remote team, spread out across Europe. Regardless, they’re a close-knit team that cares deeply about their work and relies on each other to work as a team whilst having fun doing it.

Their Stack is built mostly on PHP, Golang & Javascript and hosted on GCP with Kubernetes and Docker tooling. They care a lot about tooling, testing and documentation and invest heavily in it.

They’re scaling very fast and looking for many kinds of Engineering profiles; Backend, Frontend, Mobile, Data, DevOps, SRE & Security Engineers. Most importantly they look for Engineers on a strong growth trajectory who can show they work well in a team.

Organization and methodologies

They organise their teams into Tribes and Squads, where each Squad is cross-functional team led by an Engineering Manager. They believe in giving their teams maximum Autonomy so that they can deliver with the least amount of friction and dependency as possible. They also want their teams to care deeply about their work, as such they encourage a strong sense of ownership on their domains, the solutions they choose and the way they work.

They care deeply about "sustainable delivery" which means maintaining minimal tech-debt, testing, documentation and kick-ass tooling (we have a Developer XP Tribe) so that their teams can easily iterate on their code to bring business value to Ankorstore.

Presentation

Ankorstore is on a mission to rewild retail.

With decades of experience in retail and building marketplaces, in 2019 the Ankorstore founding team knew it was time to create a global wholesale solution – one that swings the balance in favour of independents and restores retail to its natural order. They’ve created a new ecosystem that harnesses the power of modern technology to create a mutually beneficial community that reinvents the way brands and retailers work together. As a result, wild independents can thrive.

What they are looking for

Ankorstore is a team made up of diverse individuals with one important thing in common – ambition. Their aim is to help you unleash your talent and continually develop as you strive to be your best.

You’ll have the opportunity to grow in your role, get a promotion, and even move locally or internationally. Ankorstore leadership has an entrepreneurial mindset and love when their teams take big risks and make radical choices. They’re scaling fast and looking to grow their team with world-class candidates that support their vision of rewilding retail!
