Tech Team

The team’s goal is to do everything they can to make independent retailers successful, whatever it takes. They engage in conversations with retailers every day to understand their needs and how they can better support them. They advise them and provide them with tools and resources that help them operate their shop and grow their business. They succeed when they succeed.

The department is composed of a Sales team, a Sales Operations team, and a Project Management team. They playground is Europe, so they are a multicultural organization and take it as an opportunity to share and learn from each other as they are exposed to various challenges depending on the countries they operate in.

What’s the common thread between all of them on the team? Passion for retail, independent retailers, and a willingness to innovate on their behalf to help them grow and thrive in the future.

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!
