Ankorstore is changing the way independent brands and retailers do business.

With decades of experience in retail and building marketplaces, the Ankorstore founding team knew it was time to build a global wholesale solution to swing the balance in favor of independents. In founding Ankorstore in 2019, they set the goal to create a virtuous ecosystem at the service of independent shops and brands.

About Ankorstore

At Ankorstore, we believe that local independent retailers have a great impact on the soul of our cities and villages, and we believe that they will flourish even more if they are provided with great tools and exceptional shopping conditions. With this in mind, we are building the largest marketplace that connects authentic European brands with thousands of independent retailers. We are extremely proud to be able to support these amazing entrepreneurs every day.

Ankorstore was founded in 2019 and has recently closed a €250 million Series C funding. We have over 450 employees and want to continue to scale strongly.

About your role

There is a fine line between indiscriminate CRM and an effective, yet personal, management of the communication with users. If you love to do mass-emailing with generic content, this job is not for you. We believe we must create value for our users, and for that we need to always be sensitive to what they want, and communicate accordingly. At Ankorstore, the CRM team is in charge of analysing and understanding user’s behaviour and lifecycles. We want to implement action plans and touchpoints that will allow us to build a long-term relationship with our users.

We are looking for someone with a true interest in understanding customer lifecycles. Someone who can navigate both quantitative and qualitative forms of data and be able to draw actionable inferences.

As a member of the fast-paced growth team, although you would be reporting to the CRM project manager, you will need to act as a project manager yourself! You will be given autonomy and independence. The more initiative you have the more influence and impact you will be able to have. All of this will make you into a pillar of the CRM execution, coordinating our work in all the countries in which we have a presence.

What you will be doing:

  • Support the CRM project Manager: Ensure good execution of our campaigns, design relevant multichannel strategies to better engage users, and build a thorough understanding of customers’ behaviours and motivations and help to coordinate studies with the Data team.
  • Execute the Marketing communication plan: Implement multichannel strategies, improve transactional communications, and design the lifecycles of our brands & retailers on the platform to engage, nurture and grow our user base.
  • Support and empower countries’ teams: Provide CRM expertise and support to countries, coordinate countries’ communication plans in collaboration with the Design team, and interact with our Sales Team to make sure we provide a consistent experience to our users
  • Analyse CRM performance: Track our CRM performance, identify areas of improvement and draw recommendations, run experimentations and A/B tests, and leverage data to make sure we adapt our CRM to the needs of our users.
  • You will always work with Data to support our decisions!
