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 1400 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 have a second nature level of comfort with SQL, Python, Git, and local / cloud based development environments (e.g. JupyterLabs, Databricks or equivalent). You have comprehensive experience in developing and implementing machine learning models in production systems. You have utilized time-boxed experimentation to optimize data science products to improve business value.

You are driven towards DS innovation, have an affinity to be forward-thinking, and have crafted DS products not only for the immediate needs but aligned to where Acquisition Marketing is heading in the near future and tied to company goals. You approach problems without pretense, and when presented with a challenge, pick the right tool for the job; introducing new methods when vital but also recognizing when a classical or off-the-shelf solution will suffice.

You have an unwavering aim to learn the intricacies of the Acquisition Marketing teams mission, data exhaust, strategy, and company OKRs. You are flexible in execution; agile value generation comes through multiple iterations of a core DS product. You have worked with the teams to align each DS product opportunity with organizational OKRs, and build consensus with how value crafted from DS will be tracked and jointly communicated to the broader organization.
