About this episode

Sure, it’s fun to chat with data executives and thought leaders, but this season, we are focusing on the people who roll up their sleeves and get the data work done. And there’s no better place for a podcast like ours to start than with a data practitioner at Drizly. 

Special guest Emily Hawkins, analytics and data platform lead, joins Tim and Juan to share how the data team and the data stack were established and how the e-commerce platform is evolving following the company’s acquisition by Uber.
