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 a 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.

Who you are
In this crucial role, your time will be focused on managing the engineering efforts for a team focused on Data Engineering. Your responsibilities span, but are not limited to, directing day-to-day efforts, managing new/existing projects, and driving mission-critical projects to a successful outcome. You will lead teams of talented engineers while growing their capabilities through coaching, mentoring, and direct feedback.

While working closely with other engineering leaders, you’ll help drive innovation and establish best practices across the organization as we scale.
Ideally, during your IC engineering days, you have gained experience standing up infrastructure systems, utilizing AWS, highly advanced software development skills, and gained experience in Big Data streaming technologies such as Kafka, Flink, or Spark, but we are flexible on your specific experience; we care more about general engineering acumen than any specific tech.
