What's it like to work at Drift?

At Drift, we care about people. We want to delight our customers every day and look to them as our biggest source of motivation and feedback. We come in each day ready to build the things they need, and sometimes that means changing plans on a dime. We care about each other and are each other's biggest hype machines. We are hungry for growth, both as a company and as individuals. We thrive on feedback, and seek to level up every member of the team through mentorship and learning opportunities. We are driven by our ability to operate autonomously, deliver value daily, and share learnings with each other. We know that failure is an important part of the process and see it as an opportunity to grow and better serve our customers and ourselves in the future. We show up ready to do whatever it takes to get the job done, whether it means asking for help, going beyond our technical know how, or breaking down ambiguous problems, we’re here for it.

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities.

Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
