An Insider's view of Wix

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have an inclusive and relaxed vibe where people want to get to know you, clubs form out of similar interests, and you bond with other departments at company events. Two clubs I enjoyed attending were ‘Wixercise’ where we get a group to go to fitness classes after work and ‘Wine Not’ where we indulge in wine and cheese and play games!

Account Executive

What does career growth look like on your team?

What's cool about Wix is there are many ways to grow. It's such a wide and interconnected company, so you can learn and take interest in many things. I'm an example of how you can be given a little extra responsibility and it turns into its own team, currently over 15 people.

Michael

Team Leader, Sales

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We are working in an environment where we're not just executing a playbook, we're writing the playbook. Wix is growing quickly and as managers we often face new challenges and areas that are not familiar to anyone within the organization. This is exactly why we’re always looking at the team’s feedback and ideas to help us find the right path.
