Figma is adding to our team of passionate people who are revolutionizing the world of design. Figma is a multiplayer design platform, changing the way people design, prototype, and iterate together. Figma’s platform enables multiple people to work together in the same file. As a result, Figma has simplified the design process for teams of designers, developers, and partners by creating an online space for them to collaborate visually. If you’re looking to work at a company that is building the future of design tools, welcome to Figma.

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. You’ll partner across the organization to ensure the delivery of our DE&I strategy and roadmap, offering subject matter expertise to help continually elevate how we think and practice DE&I. The three core areas of focus to establish ongoing strategies and programs will address Talent Acquisition, Internal Community, and the Wider World.

  • Use data to understand key opportunities within our current programs and practices and ongoing efforts to improve DE&I practices.
  • 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.

You might be a good fit if you have

  • 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.

About Figma

Anyone involved in the product development process can share always up-to-date files with a link. That makes it easy to collaborate on the latest designs and prototypes and see their code attributes. Figma has simplified collaboration across the entire design process for thousands of companies like Microsoft, Slack and Uber and users, including designers, developers, product managers, marketers and others.
