We are:
DeviantArt's Canada-based backend engineering and machine learning team. We are responsible for all search, recommendation, and machine learning applications at DeviantArt, the world's largest arts community; and we work closely with other Wix teams who leverage similar techniques and technologies to develop core Wix features.
We're looking for an API Engineer to join us in building DeviantArt Protect, our industry-leading platform for protecting creators' rights on the decentralized web. We are working at the intersection of machine learning and blockchain technologies to ensure that artists remain in control of their art. By making the decentralized economy more transparent, trustworthy, and defensible, we aim to make it accessible to more mainstream uses, and thereby to help all artists realize the potential of the NFT revolution.
You are:
A backend engineer with at least 2 years of hands-on experience in developing and deploying distributed web applications, including at least 1 year of experience in building and operating public API endpoints. You've taken at least one project from design through development and to operation and maintenance phases of its lifecycle. You are comfortable programming in Python and designing serverless applications. You're self-directed, and enjoy starting from high-level requirements rather than being given very granular tasks. You take ownership of the systems you build and expect others to do the same.
You see the potential that decentralized technologies have to change the Internet, but are also aware of the many challenges facing the ecosystem today. You're excited to take part in ensuring the Internet remains safe and open for everyone.
As an API Engineer at DeviantArt, you will:
  • Contribute to the design and development of our multitenant DeviantArt Protect platform, making heavy use of Python and managed AWS services like Lambda, API Gateway, DynamoDB, SNS, SQS, CloudFormation, S3, and CloudWatch
  • Build and scale the public APIs that enable us to offer DeviantArt Protect to internal Wix customers as well as external, third-party integrations
  • Work directly with some of the top companies in the Web3 space
  • Act as a primary partner-facing contact point during development of high-value customer integrations
  • Mentor new employees as the team continues to grow

While we are open to US-based remote employees, we strongly prefer candidates who are able and willing to relocate to Vancouver, Canada in order to join us in working in a hybrid schedule (3 days on-site, 2 days working from home).

An Insider's view of Wix

What are some social events your company does?

Wix has large Zoom parties where there are different activities and events that we can all enjoy together. They do an amazing job planning the day and giving everyone the choice to participate in what they like. There are hosts, music, and snacks! Makes you forget that we are miles away from each other, and truly feels like a bonding experience.


Customer Care QA Agent

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I partner with a wide range of teams at Wix every day to help move the company’s goals forward and discuss new challenges, transactions, projects, or strategies. Collaboration is how I stay updated on the goals of my business partners, give effective and practical legal advice, and help Wix push boundaries.


Lead Counsel, U.S.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We embrace change: we are still a "startup team" testing new ideas and demonstrating our impact to our customers and internally. We believe in teamwork: it's more important than ever to demonstrate your ability to help teammates. We “run with it”: our most successful Account Managers take an idea and execute with little to no guidance.


VP, Account Management

What’s the vibe like in the office?

While many of us no longer work in the office due to COVID, we've all developed genuine care and a sense of family I've never encountered in a workplace. Not only do we help each other when things get tough, but we also celebrate our many joys together. When we can, we still reach out and hang out. It's nice knowing we're all there for each other.

What are Wix Perks + Benefits

Wix Benefits Overview

We believe in a people-first approach, continuously adding to our benefits package to create an amazing employee experience for all.

Although we’re happy to offer great benefits like a competitive salary, 401k with matching, full medical and dental coverage, mental health resources, and generous/flexible PTO, what we value most is our “Take It Personal” approach to caring for our people. We recognize every employee has different needs, so we work to provide them with unique support and resources that go beyond the typical benefits package.

Whether that’s giving them extra time off to take care of a personal issue, being thoughtful in how we create an inclusive culture of belonging, shipping care packages for those who are sick, or providing food and shelter for someone who was affected by a natural disaster, we’re always there. It’s just The Wix Way.
