Figma is seeking a brand designer to join the Brand Team, a multidisciplinary group of designers, makers, and strategists. This dynamic team establishes and evolves the way Figma shows up and interacts with the world through our brand touch-points, marketing efforts and social channels. The team values makers who are curious, think deeply, enjoy collaboration, and appreciate feedback.

    • Design for a wide range of projects while ensure consistency of the Figma brand across many surfaces including our website, social channels, and events
    • Actively contribute to the evolution of the Figma brand by exploring novel solutions that support our brand and marketing goals
    • Collaborate with marketing, product design, and growth teams to concept campaigns, evergreen communications, and launch announcements that support new products and features

We’d love to hear from you if you have:

      • A strong portfolio showcasing brand experience across a range of mediums
      • Excellence in typography, color, layout, and composition
      • Skilled at form and image making
      • Effectively communicate concepts and design rationale
      • Strong skills around critical thinking and storytelling
      • Embrace an iterative design process and receptive to feedback
      • Able to work independently, drive multiple projects at a time, and iterate quickly
      • Foster strong working relationships with team members and cross-functional partners
      • Comfortable in your soft skills: listening, negotiating, and decision-making
At Figma, one of our values is Grow as you go. We believe in hiring smart, curious people who are excited to learn and develop their skills.
