Of the myriad challenges in scaling up an engineering organization, onboarding new employees is probably the least understood. There are relatively common solutions for large-scale recruitment, finance, and administration, but onboarding remains a question that many organizations struggle with.
Wix Academy, an engineer-driven training organization, has been struggling with massive scaling challenges: over the last two years, headcount has doubled, and the company had to learn to cope with the influx while maintaining velocity. Tomer Gabel explains the onboarding process at Wix during its first year of operation, covering lessons Wix learned and the solutions it developed along the way.
A programming junkie and computer history aficionado, Tomer Gabel’s been around the block a few times before settling at Wix as a system architect. In the last few years, he’s developed a major crush on Scala, promoting it within the Israeli software industry as part of Java.IL (the Israeli Java user group) and Underscore (the Israeli Scala user group) and organizing the annual Scalapeño conference in Tel Aviv.
