πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ”¬The problems that you'll be solving

You'll be helping us with some of these challenges β€”

  1. How do we build a strong testing-first delivery cycle so we can ship code with greater confidence?
  2. How do we make sure testing engineers can effectively keep building the test suite to closely follow the development release cycle?

πŸ˜‡ What we're like

We're problem-solvers at heart, and we value data-driven decision making. We believe in high-quality execution, crafting great user experiences, honest & transparent communication and enabling our people to thrive and be the best version of themselves.

The early engineering + product team includes folks from Lynk and Kilobyte, and we're hoping to build one of the best teams in the city; kind & compassionate, diverse and smart β€” one you can be proud for being a part of.

To get a sense of both our product and communications ethos, read some of our past release notes β€” Release #4, Release #5 and Release #6.

πŸ›  Stack

We're all generalists and prefer picking the right tool for the job. That said, we do use a lot of new & exciting technology.


  • Golang for most services and Node.js (Koa, Polka) for a few
  • gRPC for inter-service communication
  • PostgreSQL



  • AWS (with extensive use of RDS, S3, ECS, SQS, SES & CloudWatch)
  • Gitlab for version-control and CI/CD
  • All apps built and shipped as Docker images
  • Kubernetes for container orchestration
  • Honeybadger for error analytics & uptime monitoring


The engineering team is entirely remote right now, and will continue to be until the pandemic is over.

Currently, Wiz is at a charming bungalow in Kilpauk. Sometime in the first half of 2021, we plan to shift to a swanky new location in a more accessible part of the city.

πŸ‘£ Process

The application process consists of a 30 minute phone call with one of our engineers, followed by a technical take-home task and 2-3 more meetings. We promise not to ask you any brain teasers or trick questions, and we'll let you know the outcome irrespective of the hiring panel's decision.
