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 led evidence-based strategic decision making. You are a humble analyst who realizes that trial and failure is the primary catalyst for growth. You understand what’s required for a balanced partnership and sharing of ideas, rooted in concise, productive and effective communication between a Finance organization as well as the operational leaders that you support. You understand the modern data stack and have an interest in building scalable tools and integrations for both a Finance organization and that of your business partners.

You are a truth-seeking data-hungry problem owner who builds a culture of holistic prioritization and optimization among an endless list of potential projects. You operate with a constant sense of optimism and danger - optimism that we can win and danger that a competitor might find the answer before you.

You have 7+ years of progressive relevant experience in analytical, consulting, technology, startup or strategy roles. Perhaps you have spent time within FP&A or optimized operational team budgets & spend for a DTC, eCommerce or advertising model business. You have a strong understanding of KPIs for sales and account labor efficiency, supply chain demand planning, last-mile logistics and customer service center workforce optimization. You possess ruthless prioritization standards within a framework of limited technical resources. You always think “partnership” and “team” first, bringing a holistic view of business strategy, processes and financial objectives.
