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 1300 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
You are a rock star art director/designer who knows how to tell a brand story through amazing concepts and great copy that gets people talking, drives to attract new customers, and keep those we’ve already snagged. As we grow a highly-effective and results driven Creative team, we need a strong leader, helping to evangelize our vision and purpose, strategizing and overseeing work that is customer-focused and unique to the Drizly brand. You are collaborative, highly-communicative and build strong relationships with our stakeholder partners-in-crime. You will inspire, develop and push junior team members. You will be able to hit the ground running and have a strong point of view, but get along with many different people. We have a great brand, you are going to help make it even more amazing. Oh, and your friends (or your mom) think you’ve got a great sense of humor.
You have a proven track record of success and 10+ years working on a brand-led creative team in the tech space, with 2+ years of direct management experience. You are a pro with the full Adobe Creative Suite. You’ve worked with both B2C and B2B brands. We’d be super impressed if you have HTML/CSS, UI/UX, and/or video editing experience.
