(SLIDES) Tomer Gabel @tomerg - Onboarding at Scale: An Engineering Problem

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Of the myriad challenges in scaling up an engineering organization, onboarding new employees is probably the least well-understood. There are relatively common solutions for large-scale recruitment, finance and administration, but onboarding remains a question that many organizations struggle with.

At Wix we've been struggling with massive scaling challenges: over the last two years our company headcount has doubled itself, and we had to learn to cope with the influx while maintaining velocity. In this talk we'll share with you the story of how we set up Wix Academy, an engineer-driven training organization, the solutions we've developed (and still are!), and what we've learned in our first year of operation.

Scala expert, tomerg
A programming junkie and computer history aficionado, Tomer's been around the block a few times before settling at Wix as a system architect. In the last couple of years he's developed a major crush on Scala, promoting it within the Israeli software industry as part of Java.IL (Israeli Java user group) and Underscore (Israeli Scala user group) and organizing the annual Scalapeño conference in Tel-Aviv.
