Who we are
Drizly is the world's largest alcohol marketplace & the best way to shop beer, wine & spirits. 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.
Do you see yourself here? Read on.
Who you are
You are a data-driven product designer who is passionate about improving customer acquisition through iterative design efficiencies while driving business outcomes. You are just as excited about the latest A/B test results as you are about a new insight from a user interview. You are a strong thought partner who listens carefully to stakeholders but is also willing to stand up & advocate for the user's needs. You embrace lean thinking & are creative about how to get that next increment of learning. Like any successful designer, you have a growth mindset. Lastly, you understand the business context of your design work & can tie it to make measurable outcomes.
What the role is
We need to establish a design system for Drizly - Consumer & Retailer. These are reusable digital components (e.g. buttons, navigation, cards, interaction styles) that are infused with the Drizly brand & help maintain consistency across all digital channels. It also allows us to easily update/change things. A design system is the pairing of design & code. We will be pairing the Design Systems designer with an engineering team to focus solely on the development of the Drizly Design System. Together with this designer role, they'll build up the design system & maintain it going forward. The Design System will have to support our goal (and legal requirement) of Drizly meeting Accessibility standards, as well as working closely with Brand/Marketing to ensure we are presenting a consistent brand experience.
