While the U.S. Wix team is WFH during Covid-19, at this time we are seeking Austin-based candidates who are able and willing to work on-site in a hybrid model once we return to the office.
We're proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Wix was built around the idea that everyone has the right to be successful, online. This same vision defines us as an employer: creating a work environment where everyone is welcome, and anyone has the right to succeed.

An Insider's view of Wix

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is be who you are. You have an impact on those you come in contact with (yes, even virtually). It's the reason you’re here or want to join. Wix is filled with nothing more than good people working hard to help other people. The level of care you'll receive working for Wix from within this Wix is more than you could ever imagine.

Customer Care Expert

What projects are you most excited about?

Going into the role of a Senior AE, I didn’t realize was how valuable my 2 years at Wix were going to be for a team full of new faces. I’m excited to run my own sales training for the floor. As I prepare, I recognize how much I’ve progressed in my sales career, and it’s humbling to help other reps learn from my trial and error.

Lauren

Senior Account Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our Customer Success team provides the best solutions to maximize our users’ success on Wix. Someone who is committed to personal & team excellence, has a strong understanding of eCommerce offerings, can build meaningful relationships, and is solution oriented will do well here.

Bruce

Senior Account Manager, eCommerce

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We embrace change: we are still a "startup team" testing new ideas and demonstrating our impact to our customers and internally. We believe in teamwork: it's more important than ever to demonstrate your ability to help teammates. We “run with it”: our most successful Account Managers take an idea and execute with little to no guidance.

Alana

VP, Account Management

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaborating is the best part about this company! While working from home during this time can be difficult elsewhere, when it comes to reaching out to solve a user’s or an employee’s problem, Wix makes that so easy with using the latest collaboration tools like Slack. It’s a great way to build a network while being away from a physical office.
