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 stakeholders 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.

As a member of our Product Support Team, you’ll be the voice of Figma as you help ensure these great experiences happen every day. Engaging with our customers requires critical thinking, an investigative mindset and impeccable communication skills. We’re looking for a team player based in London who is technically inclined, eager to learn about design tools, and comfortable working in a startup environment where there are a lot of hats to wear.

We’re looking for support professionals who want to grow their support careers and we have an extensive leveling matrix to help facilitate that.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Providing exceptional technical support for new and experienced Figma users, via email and Twitter
  • Collaborating with our design, sales and engineering teams to understand and resolve complex issues, and improve the product
  • Escalating technical issues with the appropriate team for investigation
  • Writing clear and concise bug reports
  • Turning customer feedback into actionable recommendations for our product team
  • Closing the feedback loop with users when bugs are resolved and feature requests are implemented
  • Making suggestions for detailed, easy-to-understand support content (e.g. saved replies, internal documentation, etc)
  • Continually focusing on improving our support processes as we scale

You might be a good fit if you have:

  • 2+ years’ experience working in a support environment for a technical SaaS product
  • Strong written communication skills, with the ability to turn complex ideas into easily understood concepts
  • Demonstrated empathetic problem solving with a passion for helping customers
  • Experience streamlining processes and communicating across teams (design, engineering, product)
  • You are agile and adaptive, and thrive in the ever-changing growth and excitement of startup culture
  • Fluency in German or French is required for this role
