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.
