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, design and build better products — from start to finish. Whether it’s consolidating tools, simplifying workflows, or collaborating across teams and time zones, Figma makes the design process faster, more efficient, and fun while keeping everyone on the same page. From great products to long-lasting companies, we believe that nothing great is made alone—come make with us!

We're looking for a legal operations professional to join our growing team. As the third member of the legal operations team at Figma, you will help us design and build this function. This role involves managing and supporting projects and systems across the full range of subject matter supported by Figma’s legal team, implementing and managing technology systems, optimizing processes, and otherwise helping the legal team to scale. You'll be working in an exciting and constantly evolving environment while establishing relationships within the legal team and cross-functionally with the G&A and GTM teams to establish processes to support scale.

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:

  • Manage and support projects across the full range of subject matter supported by the legal team
  • Help to implement and manage technology systems to help the legal department scale
  • Collaborate to design, implement, and improve Figma’s legal operations and procedures to manage legal and business risk
  • Assist with administrative matters to support the legal team

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

  • 5+ years experience in legal operations, business/operations manager, or paralegal role in a corporate legal department or similar experience
  • Experience developing and implementing systems and processes related to legal or business operations
  • Experience problem-solving independently, organizing workload and priorities, and completing tasks on time
  • Experience building relationships and communicating with stakeholders across all levels and functions

While not required, it’s an added plus if you also have:

  • 2+ years of experience working in a high-growth tech company
  • 1+ years of experience working in a legal operations role at a SaaS company
  • Experience with productivity software (such as Slack, Google suite, and Asana) and legal technology systems (such as Ironclad).
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. If you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with the points outlined in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
