You’re an open-source contributor who’s familiar with software engineering best practices (testing, code reviews, pair programming, etc.). You can also quickly spot bad practices and anti-patterns.

As a FED Team Leader, you will:

  • Recruit talented, top-notch developers.
  • Mentor and advise the team in code review, pair programming and more.
  • Envision the big picture and break down the necessary steps to get there by delegating tasks and making decisions in an effective manner.
  • Work as a part of the team in hands-on development at least 80% of the time.
  • Influence the Wix Engineering Guild by interacting with stakeholders outside of the team.
  • Contribute to the engineering culture and methodologies of Wix.
