About Wix

Job Description

We are:

Wix IP – the team dedicated to working with inventors all across Wix, locating the best inventions in Wix’s existing and future products, and getting the best IP protection for these inventions through patents. We also work with Wix’s legal department when fighting patent infringement complaints filed against Wix (typically by patent trolls).

You are:

A tech lover with an extensive background in a variety of technological fields, including web development, user interfaces, and consumer web or mobile product design. You have excellent English - written and spoken.

You have 10+ years of experience in technology development, working with both users and development teams from conception to deployment and support. Your experience should include substantial work in requirement gathering, requirement analysis, market and competitive analysis, product specification creation and product management.

You must be able to grasp new technologies quickly and apply this understanding in focused research and analysis. Similar to market research, you should be able to analyze our inventions and technologies, and identify the unique advantages we have over existing products and alternatives.

Great writing skills are essential since you’ll need to capture the essence of the inventions and convert them to invention disclosure documents – the foundation of the actual patents.

Experience with patents and the patenting process are a great plus. This could include experience in patent concept development, patent writing, patent review, and patent evaluation.

As an Intellectual Property Manager, you will:

  • Work with R&D teams and inventors (in our Tel-Aviv offices and worldwide) in the capturing and gathering of inventions, and the creation of invention disclosure documents
  • Work with patent attorneys during patent filing and prosecution – converting the invention disclosure into actual patents, and getting them granted
  • Work with the head of IP to determine priorities, procedures, and methodologies, and to assist in Wix IP operations
  • Research multiple sources, reviewing alternative technologies, competitors, and prior art references
  • Help in creating and managing other types of IP, such as trademarks
  • Participate in the creation of Wix’s IP strategy and long term goals
