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!

Bringing our users together at events is core to Figma’s marketing strategy. We do this through educational livestreams, product office hours, community events, and more! The biggest event of the year is our global user conference Config.

You’ll partner closely with cross-functional teams (like Brand and Partnerships) to bring the marketing team’s goals and objectives to life through impactful events centered around our community.
