Job Description

Join our Identity group - one of the newest, fastest growing teams at Wix to help us solve unique distributed system challenges, while working with cutting edge technologies.

We’re responsible for building a state-of-the-art identity management platform across Wix - managing authentication and authorization in a highly rich & complex high-scale microservices environment.

As a Backend Infrastructure Engineer on our team, you’ll come across exciting challenges in design, synchronization, performance and security. You’ll be staying ahead of the curve with the latest infra and work with a fun, diverse team of developers who are making a significant incremental impact each and every day.

What You’ll Do

  • Build our next generation authentication and authorization (ABAC) solution

  • Solve tough performance and security challenges
  • Be in touch with many Wix developers providing them with an infrastructure that both addresses their needs and boosts their velocity
  • Deploy to production dozens of times a day

What We’re Looking For

  • 3+ years of experience in server-side web development - a must
  • Experience with microservices architecture and TDD methodology and
  • Familiarity with common web application vulnerabilities
  • Knowledge in maintaining critical core production services - a must
  • Authorization & authentication know-how; building infrastructure; security and participation in threat-models and SDLC - an advantage
  • Experience with scala, designing, building and maintaining high scale, high performing production services - a big advantage

To succeed in this role you must be curious, with motivation to grow and make an impact in both infrastructure challenges as well as product ones. You’ll need to be passionate about performance and scale, and understanding of many product flows. You’ll also need to have a service-oriented mindset and seek to see the big picture & continually expand your knowledge, expertise and impact across Wix.

Being a Backend Engineer at Wix

Due to our high scale, we run our production clusters across multiple data centers and cloud vendors, managing an ecosystem of over 1,300 microservices.

Our backend developers enjoy:

  • Being part of Wix’s Backend engineering guild - belonging to a professional community that is dedicated to your succeed and personal growth
  • Ongoing training, workshops and time to learn and work on cross-company projects.
  • Contribution to Open Source projects and community
  • Personal presentation skills training (blog writing, podcasts, public speaking)
  • Collaboration with teams and engineers from Wix offices around the world

Working at Wix

Join us to work in one of the most exciting companies in the world, serving over 190M users worldwide. This is a chance to be part of a fast growing, dynamic, fun and creative environment. You’ll work with an amazing group of professionals who are also great people, with whom you can do extraordinary things.
