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 Developer Tools. 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.

Ideally, during your IC engineering days, you have gained experience working with at least some of our stack (Ruby on Rails, React/Redux, Javascript/Typescript, AWS, Docker), but we are flexible on your specific experience; we care more about general engineering acumen than any specific tech. You have a true passion for leading, mentoring, performance monitoring, managing scope, reviewing code, and working closely with others to plan out architectural & technical decisions. You have an eye for good testing and strive to ship quality code. We would be really impressed if you had experience in eCommerce, payment systems, or the food, and beverage technology space.
