Wix Academy. We’re a unit within Wix Engineering, and we’re all about taking our software engineers to the next level, and promoting the values of Wix’s Dev-Centered Culture. We lead various Wix Engineering training activities, take an active part in cross-organization projects, we organize and sponsor cool meetups, workshops and conferences in various Dev communities, and we lead the global Wix Engineering brand, online and offline.
Wix Kyiv is a rapidly growing site, and our engineering division is a central part of it. We are a group of thinkers and believers, enthusiastic about making amazing products. We work with the latest technologies in the industry, always keeping up-to-date with the best practices and methodologies. We are here to stay and on an endless mission to build a rich and thriving dev-community. Our partners are global thought leaders whom we invite to share their knowledge with us through meetups, conferences, events.
