Server Engineer – Node.js [WX]
The Innovation Team at Wix. We create advanced developer tools and new technologies for the web. Our current project is building an IDE for React components that can be used concurrently by programmers and designers. As of today, there is no classic back-end with API and database. Instead, there are a few Node processes, web workers, and the product can be run in a browser or as an Electron app. We are on a mission to allow users to work with it without any download or local installation while getting the full capacity of features on a browser.
