Wix’s Gangs and Guilds model

No silos

Back-end Guilds at Wix:

At one point (around 800 people) they notice they have too many gangs and guilds and it was hard to manage. So they created “Companies” that are clusters of Gangs with a “CEO”. They can operate independently as a startup. Some companies are small (4 people) some have 100 people.

Unfortunately this created product silos.
