Product Designer, Developer Collaboration (Senior Level)

San Francisco, CA
Design
Full-time
Figma is adding to our team of passionate people who are evolving the world of design. We are building a browser-based design tool that looks and feels as good as a native application and has all the additional power and advantages that come from being built upon the web platform. If you’re looking to work at a dynamic company that is building the future of design tools, we’d love to chat with you.

We’re currently looking for a design lead to own the area of “Developer Collaboration”. This means someone who’s particularly interested in how designers and developers work together to build products, and building tools for them to improve their workflows. Ideally you are someone who’s often found sitting next to your engineers directly, involving them early in the process, and believes in frequent ongoing communication. While not a strict requirement, we have a preference for people with a technical background given design solutions here may involve bridging design and code in some way. For more insights on our process, you can watch this recent talk on designer developer collaboration from our first user conference in January, or read this tweet thread from one of our product managers here.

As a Product Designer at Figma, you will work fluidly and collaboratively with the rest of the organization through all aspects of the design process. This means we value designers who can work end-to-end and don’t shy away from any one portion of design, from sketches to speaking with customers to high fidelity mocks to prototypes.
