Who we are
Drizly is the world’s largest alcohol marketplace and the best way to shop beer, wine and spirits. Our customers trust us to be part of their lives – their celebrations, parties, dinners and quiet nights at home. We are there when it matters - committed to life’s moments and the people who create them. We partner with the best retail stores in over 1300 cities across North America to serve up the best buying experience. 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.

Who you are
You are a tech-savvy engineer that thrives on building things with real-world applications that you and your friends could talk about. You’re at the point in your career where you’ve committed to taking action to continuously improve and readily accept assignments that broaden your capabilities. You’re also someone that knows their strengths and opportunities and proactively seeks feedback in pursuit of growth. Comfort with learning and adopting new technologies helps you keep your technical skills fresh, so you’re someone who’s comfortable experimenting until you find the tech that works. Coworkers would describe you as a flexible, open communicator that can balance taking action with driving results and you know/can clearly articulate the difference.
You are a proficient contributor that’s passionate about writing clean, readable, maintainable code and display best practices consistently sticking to style guides, git usage, and timely deployments. You’ve been trusted to own small-to-medium features from technical design through deployment and are self-sufficient in at least one area of a codebase matched by a high-level of understanding of systems interacting with that codebase.
You ideally have two to three years of experience working with backend web technologies. We write most of our core systems in Ruby, but we are flexible on your specific experience; we care more about general engineering acumen than any specific tech. We would be really impressed if you had experience in eCommerce, payment systems, or the food and beverage technology space.
