An Insider's view of Wix

What does your typical day look like?

One of the great things about Wix is how dynamic it is. My day is usually a mixture of 1:1 check-ins, team meetings, an interview or two, and longer-term projects, such as working with colleagues to make onboarding even better or develop training programs. There’s always something new and interesting to do!

Jenny

People Partner

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 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

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.

Senior Account Executive
