An Insider's view of Wish

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We do a lot of cross-functional work with other teams to create promotions, campaigns, articles, social media content, videos, and more. We also provide regional insights to stakeholders and exchange ideas to help grow each market. I love looking back and seeing how much my role has evolved since I started working at Wish!

Tania

Localization Manager, Spanish

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My goal coming out of university was to learn how to scale the infrastructure of a growing company. Larger tech companies have mostly solved these scalability problems and Wish gave me the opportunity to solve tough problems hands on. Wish is now handling 100x the traffic since I joined and I'm still learning new things everyday.

Vitaliy

Manager, Software Engineering

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

My role as a Brand Protection specialist at Wish revolves around reviewing and actioning on merchants that infringe on our Intellectual Property policy. My work will hopefully create a fair and trustworthy platform for both our users and merchants.
