About the team

The Wix’s Platform Engineering team provides a rich suite of integrated tools to enhance developer productivity within Wix. By streamlining the development process and reducing the cognitive load, these tools allow our engineers to focus on what really matters - their domain, architecture, and business logic.

 

We set the tone and standard of our developer culture, fusing together facets of engineering, product management, DevOps, analytics, and technical management. We arre listening to developers’ voices, but also promoting best practices and guiding Wix developers towards more effective use of the platform.

 

Our development culture is transparent, highly technical, and agile. Because we ship often, we’ve adopted continuous delivery and test-driven development (TDD). Our primary languages are Scala and Java, but we expect our engineers to know popular paradigms that come from other languages as well. Wix Server Framework supports highly scalable systems that support Wix’s 243 million users—and the people who visit their websites.

 

We offer:

  • Equity (RSUs) and discount stock purchasing plans (ESPP)
  • Health and personal accident insurance
  • Daily lunch and snacks at the office
  • Commuting allowance
  • Discounted phone operator services and compensation for a new phone
  • Free exercise classes and wellness activities
  • Online courses and professional development
  • Fun activities and team events
     

Salary range is 4000 - 8000 Eur GROSS / month (Total package, including equity)
