From great products to long-lasting companies, we believe that nothing great is made alone—come make with us!
We believe that all people deserve fair and equitable treatment regardless of identity, and that this is not a political statement, but a human rights statement.  Our goal is for Figmates to feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work.  We are seeking a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion leader to champion these efforts as well as our ongoing efforts for Figmates and the communities where we live and work.

    • Act as a key resource for the Employee Resource Groups (ERG’s) to help integrate ideas and opportunities into the overall roadmap.
    • Partner with our executive team and leadership to increase accountability for DE&I programs and outcomes.
    • Provide ongoing analysis and consultation on the demographic makeup of our teams, as well as the ability to attract, retain and develop Figmates from all backgrounds.
    • Provide feedback and resources to the product roadmap at Figma on DE&I efforts.
    • Facilitate company-wide efforts to improve DE&I knowledge and proficiency across all levels and locations.

      • 5+ years of directly managing and leading robust teams
      • Shown ability to articulate a vision and drive a strategic and actionable plan to deliver on that strategy with key data.
      • Experience translating data into actionable insights.
      • Experience working in a high-growth company is preferred
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. If you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with the points outlined in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways.

About Figma
Dylan Field and Evan Wallace co-founded Figma in 2012 with the vision of building tools for designers in the browser. Their goal was to create the first design tool that combined the accessibility of the Web with the functionality of a native app. Today Figma is a platform with tools and spaces to support the entire product development process—idea to design to build—and has simplified collaboration for companies like Microsoft, Uber, and The New York Times to name a few.
At Figma, we celebrate and support our differences. We know employing a team rich in diverse backgrounds, experiences, and opinions allows our employees, products, and community to flourish. Figma is an equal opportunity workplace—we are dedicated to equal employment opportunities regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national orientation, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status.
