Product Manager - Activity



San Francisco, CA, USA · New York, NY, USA · United States
Posted on Friday, July 28, 2023

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!

We’re looking for an entrepreneurial and user-driven Product Manager to lead our Activity efforts. As the teams that use Figma grow, allowing users to keep a pulse on the activity happening across team members becomes even more sophisticated. This PM will help build innovative, intuitive, and reliable experiences that create visibility across teams, making Figma a better home for crafting impactful product experiences.

The Activity team sits within the Teamwork pillar at Figma. Our mission is to help teams, big and small, create and collaborate effectively. Individuals discover Figma, but teams adopt and scale with it. As the Activity PM, you’ll help advance our vision of an open and accessible design platform by making it easier for teammates to stay connected to each other and engage with the work that is happening around them. You will be responsible for product experiences that will drive a cultural shift in how designers and organizations work. You will also have a chance to be part of a fast-growing startup that is hungry for innovation, and an incredibly talented Product team to learn from and partner with!

This is a full-time role that can be held from one of our US hubs or remotely in the United States.

What you’ll do at Figma:

  • Take a new product investment to market that is geared towards driving social collaboration within organizations
  • Develop and implement a vision and roadmap for notifications that scales as the Figma suite grows
  • Work closely with designers and engineers to define feature functionality and execute against the roadmap
  • Do all the things you'd expect in a PM, like driving planning and prioritization, defining and tracking key metrics, collaborating on marketing, messaging, positioning, and go-to-market plans

We’d love to hear from you if:

  • You have experience successfully leading complex, user-facing product launches
  • You have a knack for visual design
  • You have deep user empathy and the ability to build relationships with key customers
  • You’re comfortable working on both technical platforms and user-facing features
  • You’re an excellent verbal and written communicator. You’re able to zoom in and out effortlessly based on the audience. You can rally and motivate a team behind a bold vision
  • Have an affinity for the fast-paced, changing environment of a start-up, a sense of humor and get-it-done personality
