One of Wix’s values is giving everybody equal opportunity to express themselves online, regardless of their location . As a leading web publishing platform, we value the privilege of bringing DIY website building to all corners of the world. But it’s not only our user base that widely spread worldwide. With multiple locations across the globe, one may say that the Wix team itself has no borders.
We’d like to take you on a transnational virtual trip. We’ll visit all international Wix offices and meet the local crew in each. Please fasten your seat-belts and get ready for take off!
Wix TLV: HQ on the Shores of the Mediterranean
Wix was conceptualized, born and developed on one of Tel-Aviv’s Mediterranean beaches. Located in the Tel-Aviv port, our HQ is the very heart of Wix and home to our Development, Product, Marketing, Design, Support and Business teams. The office design supports two of our core values – transparency and a non-hierarchical work culture. Those are reflected in the office’s translucent glass walls, that open up to a spectacular ocean view from every office.
The TLV Wix team is made up of a colorful group of professionals (and their dogs) who bring passion, innovation and dedication to their work and complete insanity to their offices’ decor. Walk into any office and you’ll stumble across a wild collection of geeky gadgets, boxing gear, skateboards, My Little Pony dolls and even some creepy mannequins.
The local staff will be quick to befriend you but don’t feel too bad if you can’t tap into the conversation: Wix employees speak over 12 languages between them. But they all somehow mix well when hanging out on our chill-out rooftop after hours.
Wix Lounge SF: The West Coast Crew
Wix SF is the company’s second largest office. It hosts one of Wix’s most valued assets, the company’s international Call Center. Serving millions of users in and outside the U.S., our SF team members are a dedicated team of problem solvers, who will walk the extra mile to help Wix users wherever they may happen to be.
A first-time visitor to the SF office may mistakenly think he crashed a Hipster convention. But don’t let those old-school sneakers and facial hair fool you: these guys are real hippies and have the social conscience to show for it. Wix SF is strongly embedded in the local Bay Area community, volunteering with many charities, dog shelters and youth education programs. In addition to paying it forward, the SF team is famous for their hilariously fun group activities. Trust us, you don’t want to miss an 80’s outfit day at the office. Need another reason to drop by our SF office? We’re now getting ready for the September launch of our San Francisco Wix Lounge, a free event and co-working space for web-developers. Stay-tuned as we plan to host some of the coolest tech and small business events in town!
Wix Lounge NYC: A Co-working Community in Manhattan
As a tech startup, we’re first-handedly familiar with the challenges faced by entrepreneurs. Our New York Wix Lounge is our way of giving back to our users and to the community, by providing them a cozy and creative space to work in without having to worry about rent. The Wix Lounge also opens its prime NYC location for Wix users to host their business events, product launches, art openings and promotions. There’s no mistaking the vibe – freelancers, artists, designers, programmers, entrepreneurs and all types of creatives gather here to work, engage and invent.
Lounge visitors enjoy complimentary coffee, an iconic Manhattan view, and an exciting monthly schedule that includes professional workshops, networking meetups and pure fun gatherings. Some become so attached to the Lounge that they try to steal the Wix logo cutout. No hard feelings though.
Wix Vilnius: A Development Hub in Lithuania
Launched in November 2013, this spot is the most recent addition to the international Wix crew. Lithuania is a thriving technology hub that brings together creativity and talent, so it was only natural for Wix to choose its capital Vilnius as the ideal location to expand our research and development department in.
When you put a large crew of genius/dorky developers in one space, they are bound to create amazing things together, but they will also generate quite a geek mess. No wonder that Monika, the Vilnius office manager, often finds herself forced to use a loudspeaker in order to get the staff’s attention. All in good spirits, though. Except when table football games get too heated.
Wix Dnipropetrovsk: Our Ukraine Techies
This lovely Ukrainian city has a name that’s a little tough to pronounce, but a visit to its local Wix office will likely leave you impressed. The crew of young, brilliant developers we have working there create a fun and dynamic start-up atmosphere that any tech professional dreams of.
You may not expect developers to be very good at sports but you should know that the Wix Ukraine soccer team is kicking ass on the tech companies league. The dev crew at Dnipropetrovsk is known for more adventurous sports as well, but coding and programming is where they really go wild.
