Security Governance Manager


Remote job description

Ankorstore is an ecosystem that enables independent brands and retailers to thrive.

We're on a mission to rewild retail and restore it to its natural order by empowering brands and retailers to grow freely, embrace their creativity, and stay competitive.

Our platform harnesses the power of technology to create a mutually beneficial community that reinvents the way brands and retailers work together.

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 to swing the balance in favor of independents and return them to their rightful place - at the centre of their communities.

Just two short years later, we've grown to a team of over 650 employees operating across seven offices worldwide, and we'll grow even more in 2022. After fundraising in January 2022, taking our total funding to ?365 million, Ankorstore is thrilled to have achieved "unicorn" status in just two years.

We're scaling fast and looking to grow our team with world-class candidates to support our vision of rewilding retail!

The Security Governance Manager will work alongside their security team to identify the organization's top risks and the behaviors that manage those risks.
