Additional Information

At Wix’s Frontend Engineering Guild we build unique, scalable, resilient products and technologies that empower anyone to succeed online. Our mission is to develop complex micro-frontends and maintain the highest development standards. We embrace cutting-edge technologies, TDD, and clean code. We work in small teams, follow agile work methods and use continuous integration and delivery methodologies. We love sharing knowledge and contributing back to the open-source community.

We’re developing a cutting edge responsive workspace for building widgets based on the existing Wix Editor. As part of building their apps, our users can design their widgets in the Blocks workspace using native editor components, adding their own code with Velo.

This simplifies the app development process significantly, because designers can create apps without using code at all.

Wix Blocks is the future of Wix, our current goal is to enable users to build their apps with Blocks and improve their dev-velocity.

We’re using TS, ES6, React, Repluggable, Node.js for our small server, E2Es on Sled (it’s our framework to write e2e tests) and more.
