Figma is growing our team of passionate people on a mission to make design accessible to all. Born on the Web, Figma helps entire product teams brainstorm, create, test, and ship better designs, together. From great products to long-lasting companies, we believe that nothing great is made alone—come make with us!

In this role, you will negotiate and facilitate the completion of sales and vendor contracts, implement tracking of contractual requirements, and lead and shape processes to support the scaling of our legal operations. You will also build cross-functional relationships - particularly with our successful Sales team - to keep deals moving quickly, while enjoying the outstanding feeling of being part of a hyper-growth company developing trailblazing and innovative technology.

  • Develop and update legal forms and templates, processes, sales enablement materials, and playbooks.
  • Lead record-keeping for all contracts and correspondences, including tracking and advising on any provisions or obligations.
  • Act as the primary point of contact for many commercial matters, managing workload intake and work allocations.
  • Lead ongoing list of the important legal terms in Figma’s contracts

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

  • Experience negotiating contracts or relevant experience with a company, law firm, or legal department.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills and attention to detail.
  • Ability to multitask, prioritise, and work efficiently while collaborating on multiple deals, knowing to raise issues when needed.
  • Collaborative approach, with strong ability to establish relationships, gain credibility, and partner with others.
  • Strong work ethic and low ego, and a willingness to solve problems both large and small.
  • Confidence operating in a fast-paced, constantly evolving environment.
  • A proven understanding of European data privacy laws.

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.

About Figma
