Who we are

Our customers trust us to be part of their lives – their celebrations, parties, dinners and quiet nights at home.

Drizly offers a huge selection and competitive pricing with a side of personalized content. That is what we do. Who we are is a different story.
We are more than just another tech company. There is an intellectual curiosity that occurs at Drizly. We have a desire to question, to understand, to figure it out. Bottom line, we solve it. We value not just the truth but the process to get to the truth, to deliberate, decide and then act. Most importantly, we care. We care about our customer. We care about our company. We care about our team. There will be long days and incredible challenges.
We are blazing a trail in an industry that hasn’t changed in nearly a century, and that doesn’t scare us (well, not all the time) -and even when it does, it doesn’t stop us, it energizes us.
Do you see yourself here? Read on.
Who you are
You get excited by the evolving landscape of data tools, platforms and technologies, and you have a track record of setting up processing pipelines and storage/compute infrastructure to support analytics organizations. You have both the technical ability to accomplish any ETL task, and the larger vision of how a data architecture, codebase, and best practices should grow with the company. You love working with teams like Data Science and Business Intelligence to see how well you can transform raw data into highly actionable business insights. You have interest and experience productionalizing data science/ML models.
You thrive in a fast-paced, constantly improving, start-up environment that focuses on real-world, customer centric problems with iterative technical solutions. You have the desire to both drive your own roadmap, as well as enable others to self-serve. Your toolkit includes SQL and non-SQL for transformation, python for ETL and scripting, Kafka and/or Kinesis for streaming jobs, and the ability to troubleshoot distributed systems, optimize queries, and tune tables.
We’d be really impressed if you’ve had experience in eCommerce environments with massive amounts of clickstream and eventstream data, AWS (Redshift, S3, Cloudwatch, Fargate, et. al.), database management and permissioning, and vendor selection (testing new softwares, leading the discussion on cost/benefit).
What the role is
The Senior Data Engineer will support and enable Drizly’s Analytics team (Data Science + Business Intelligence) through a period of rapid data growth (50% YoY). From building a clickstream processing framework to help support 10m events per day, moving production tables to the analytics data lake, or integrating new data pipelines, Drizly’s Senior Data Engineer will be essential to create a scalable, well-managed foundation for the company.
The Senior Data Engineer is a critical member of the Analytics organization that works closely with Data Science and Business Intelligence, as well as product focused engineering teams. In short, the Analytics Data Engineer will help define, measure, and monitor the building blocks for Drizly’s data capabilities.

In this role you will:

  • Architect and build the Drizly Analytics team’s database, storage, and computational solutions through our next phase of growth
  • Maintain and add data pipelines that unlock business insights and new streams of revenue for various parts of the business
  • Productionalize and monitor deployed models built by the data science team
  • Support and mentor the Data Science and Business Intelligence teams: mentoring individuals to improve their data engineering skills, implementing best practices in terms of coding standards, version control, query optimization and table tuning
  • Serve as a subject matter expert on industry-wide data data tools, platforms and technologies, recommend and implement those solutions matching the future needs of Drizly’s analytics organization

An Insider's view of Drizly

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Working at Drizly is unlike anywhere I have ever worked before. We are a welcoming bunch of super intelligent people that are all working towards the same goals. We have a lively and dynamic atmosphere where we encourage people to truly be themselves. We have a ton fun, but we do what we're here to do- make Drizly the option for alcohol, period.

Shawn

Account Executive

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work closely with the product and engineering teams on a daily basis to design features for the people who use our products. I often loop in other teams to get their expertise on our users and different parts of the business. Everyone is constantly striving to make improvements and I get great ideas from people on every team at Drizly.

Annalyse

Product Designer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I identified a need for deeper knowledge of alcohol when I joined Drizly’s Customer Experience team 2 years ago. With the support & encouragement of my team, I became our first Certified Cicerone® taking a new role in Category Management. Now I'm leveraging my unique experience to help build the best-in-class catalog for alcohol one beer at a time.

Talia

Merchandising Associate

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

It’s important to me to work in common areas and talk travel, family life or the latest shows I have been watching to ease any anxiety that may exist between employees and me as a Lawyer. I think people are more comfortable asking me questions about laws, compliance, and policies when they know they can approach me about the non-legal issue, too!

Nidhi

SVP and General Counsel

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I have helped out on the frontend, been on our infrastructure team, and worked extensively with our Rails API. In all of these roles I got to learn while doing high impact work. More recently, I was given the opportunity to be a technical lead. Drizly has made me a solid generalist that can help drive a startup’s tech forward.
