As a Program Manager supporting Belonging, Equity & Impact, you’ll support Figma’s most precious resource--its employees. You’ll be a key member of the People team--acting as a strategic partner; you'll use your experience and creativity to build programs, systems, processes and resources to further embed BEI principles into our daily practices to enable Figmates to learn, grow, and thrive.

You’ll work to deliver programs that let us develop and inspire Figmates, partnering closely across the People teams, Employee Resource Groups, and wider employees.

What you'll do at Figma:

  • Collaborate with the People Teams and business leaders to define processes, timelines and expectations of managers and employees in regards to BEI efforts

  • Collaborate with People Org counterparts to provide consistent and cohesive execution of BEI programs
  • Work alongside the greater People Team to supply insights, data, and feedback on core people programs and employee engagement
  • Partner with Recruiting and People Partners on resource planning and headcount management as it pertains to representation and equity

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

  • Prioritize collaboration as well as action, ensuring commitment from partners and building trust
  • Passionate and pragmatic champion of diversity, equity and inclusion throughout all people programs
