Our customers trust us to be part of their lives - their celebrations, parties, dinners & quiet nights at home. We are there when it matters - committed to life's moments & the people who create them. We partner with the best retail stores in over 1650 cities across North America to serve up the best buying experience. Drizly offers a huge selection & 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 & 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 & incredible challenges.
We are blazing a trail in an industry that hasn't changed in nearly a century, & that doesn't scare us (well, not all the time) -and even when it does, it doesn't stop us, it energizes us.
