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 visionary tech-savvy engineering leader that thrives on building real-world applications that you and your friends could talk about for hours on end. You have a confidence that shines when managing large, complex technical challenges and are comfortable with driving best developmental practices across an engineering team. You gain excitement and energy from being the lead thinker on your team, helping continuously improve scalable and reliable products. You are someone who has the experience, instincts, and analytical mindset, all which leads up to your ability to make quality and timely technically sound decisions.
You would be described by others as an action-oriented individual; someone who loves to learn and is willing to take on any kind of new (or old) opportunity, continuously challenge yourself, the team, and anyone else around you with the goal of driving everlasting impressions and continuous growth. You have a healthy way of showing and maintaining a balanced sense of urgency, high energy, and enthusiasm. It’s obvious to others that you’re passionate about system design and performance, playing a key part in powering customers with a great end-user experience. You thrive when it comes to adapting to environments, driving ownership of projects from the system designs, to the databases, as well as API’s.
Ideally, you have at least six years of experience building and developing performant, reliable & scalable web apps, platforms, databases, and services. We are an AWS house and your experience working with any cloud provider will go far here. You will be exposed to Ruby, Python, Go and a lot of Kafka! You have decomposed a monolith into microservices and also have deep experience with event driven architecture patterns. We would be really impressed if you had experience in eCommerce, payment systems, or the food and beverage technology space.
