A Little Bit About The Ambr Group
The Ambr Group was formed after the merger of two global operators and acquirers of 3rd-party consumer products brands, Suma and D1 Brands in April 2023. We are founders, operators, and eCommerce veterans who have built and run companies with billions of dollars in online revenue. We love building brands and celebrating the entrepreneurs who get them started. We're always looking to add exceptional people who are ready for a challenge and to take our business to greater heights. If you are passionate about e-commerce and building the future of digital commerce, we would love to meet you!
The Ambr Group team comes from a wide variety of professional backgrounds and countries, but we all share a few core beliefs. Here are a few:
· We are fanatical about creating value for our brand sellers, customers, and Ambr Group's team members
· We’d rather write the rules than follow someone else’s – there is always a better way
to do things
· When it comes to building a world-class business, we shouldn’t compromise between
hard work and enjoying the journey – if we’re not having fun, we’re failing.
