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 1200 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.
Do you see yourself here? Read on.
Who you are
You are a strategist with exceptional business acumen that can help craft and execute a 5 year vision for an organization while advancing the thinking of senior leaders. You operate with integrity and thrive on ambiguity in an ever evolving environment.
You are a highly organized and effective project management leader that accomplishes through others, but not by being an inspector. You get things done by building alliances through trust, enabling you to keep a group of senior leaders and teams accountable toward big picture business strategies. You are a super communicator that can confidently interface with people at all levels, internally and externally, with clarity and direction in both your verbal and written communication, but also in decks and other collateral. 
You are an analytical thinker and have a proven track record of building business cases and sizing market opportunities with several years in a strategy role at a top-tier consulting firm. You are able to marry art with science to help shape recommendations and inform decisions. We would be really impressed if your experience spans consumer packaged goods, retail, and beverage-alcohol.

By aligning business units against strategy for a three-sided marketplace model, you will advance the thinking of senior leaders to execute against Drizly’s 5 year plan and beyond.

  • Organize and lead annual planning process to define strategic objectives and build budget across Drizly business; partner closely with Finance, our People Team + business leaders
  • Organize, facilitate and evolve weekly leadership meetings to encourage productive dialogue and discussion
  • Support a test & learn culture by partnering across teams to formalize an innovation program focused on advancing our critical priorities
  • Provide decision support by working with leadership to distill and organize recommendations for CEO/COO approval (anticipate requests for additional information, support with additional research or information analysis and surface key takeaways to ensure content is presented in a digestible format)
  • Support the CEO/COO in organizing inspiring and informative All Hands meetings to share important business information to the company as well as engage and boost team morale
  • Design and develop presentations and speaking points for internal and external audiences

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?

As I work on complex policies and laws in the alcohol space, I try to speak very plainly when explaining the history and concepts that matter to Drizly so people don’t feel intimidated. I also try to participate in as many company events and Slack discussions that I can to build relationships which should translate to being more accessible overall.

Jaci

Vice President, Legal, Regulatory & Industry Affairs

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.
