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!

The Mobile Editor Team at Figma owns our Tablet & Touch experiences. We are looking to bring our core whiteboarding and brainstorming products to a whole new class of devices in a way that feels natural and provides the same great user experience that our customers expect from a Figma product. In 2024, we are completely rethinking how our whiteboarding software, FigJam, can work in a touch-first environment like Tablet. As FigJam expands to more devices like iPads, we are looking to rethink & improve the core user experience from native controls to the touch-screen infra in our web layer.
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:
  • Help own our FigJam on iPad product, building out new tablet-specific features and redesign web experiences to work well in a touch-first experience.
  • Explore, prototype, and ship new whiteboarding and brainstorming products that we can bring to FigJam.
  • Ship features to FigJam to make Stylus devices like Apple Pencil work great on our web-first product.
  • Contribute to our “native layer”, the native UI that we build on tablet devices to bring a consistent user experience to a user’s platform of their choosing.
  • Work closely with FigJam Product & Design to think about user experiences outside the realm of just Desktop.
  • Craft performance objectives with your manager that align with company priorities and career development opportunities.
  • Begin contributing to feature workstreams organized around weekly roadmap goals and longer-term milestones in partnership with engineers and designers - we don’t operate in silos.

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

  • 5+ years of experience in programming languages (Typescript/Javascript, React, C++, Python, Java, Objective-C, Go, or Rust)
  • 5+ years of professional experience shipping user-facing features or products
  • Experience communicating and working across functions to proactively drive solutions

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

  • Tech lead experience
  • Experience working on or leading development on a large frontend client application
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.
