Our office is blocks away from UCLA with over 100 walkable choices for a quick lunch. DRINKS occupies the 16th floor of a tower on Wilshire Blvd with 360 views spanning from the Pacific Ocean, the Hollywood Sign, Downtown LA, Century City, and even Long Beach and Catalina on extra-clear days.

An Insider's view of DRINKS

What are some social events your company does?

I love our employee wine club. Each quarter we send the team 12 wines from different wine regions and styles, and every month we get on Zoom to discuss a bottle. We learn about the history of the grape, producer, and region; discuss our tasting notes; and most importantly, what we’d pair the wine with (think Reese's Pieces and Cool Ranch Doritos!)


Resident Sommelier

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

DRINKS asks the bold question, “In addition to the wine in a bottle, what drives customer value?” We build machine learning models, generate data science insights, and analyze millions of daily interactions to find out. Precisely decoding this signal is part of unlocking the secrets to the future of online marketing and merchandising.


Sr. Director of Data Science

What makes someone successful on your team?

I look for people who aren’t afraid of making suggestions. Successful members of my team aren’t afraid to evaluate a situation, make a recommendation and defend it – even if it proves to be unsuccessful. We have an environment where everyone feels comfortable making suggestions, and I seek ideas from all members of my team, regardless of title.


SVP, Marketing

What is your vision for the company?

We make it easy to buy alcohol online and have it shipped to your door in 1-2 days. It’s crazy that in 2022 it can still be easier to buy a car online than a bottle of wine. We’re disrupting alcohol by enabling any company to bring alcohol online and making the selection effortless with our patented AI and machine learning platform.


Co-Founder & CEO

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As someone with a non-traditional tech background, DRINKS has given me the opportunity to grow as an engineer. Shortly after joining, I was given more responsibility that led to bigger assignments and decision-making. Currently, I have more impact than I could have imagined before joining DRINKS and feel supported to continue that trajectory.
