Software Engineer - Teamwork


Teamwork is a full stack web engineering group building the features that enable companies of all sizes to successfully adopt, manage, collaborate, and create in Figma Design and FigJam, from two-person teams to the Fortune 500. This includes (but is not limited to) ownership of core surface areas like our search and file browsing capability, security and access platform, customer lifecycle (billing and payments) systems, and/or in-product notifications. As an engineer on Teamwork, the work you’ll do will have lasting and outsized impact on Figma as a successful business, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to both leverage your existing strengths and learn new skills as the team grows and takes on new challenges.

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:

  • Regularly collaborate with designers, PMs, and other engineers on and beyond your team (or org) to plan features that unblock adoption across new categories of customers, and to break down high level goals into tasks and timelines

  • Build, document, and maintain tests, features, and infrastructure

  • Regularly communicate and document architectural designs and requirements

  • Provide thoughtful feedback to others on the team and facilitate spaces of learning, belonging, and growth

  • Help interview and recruit more talented engineers to Figma

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

  • 2+ years of professional experience shipping features and/or products as a full-stack developer

  • Demonstrated coding fluency with one or more programming languages in a working context, including but not limited to: Typescript/Javascript, React, Ruby, Java, Python, Go, or Rust

  • Experience communicating and collaborating regularly and effectively with designers, PMs, engineers, and stakeholders beyond your team (or org) to plan features and break down high level goals into tasks and timelines,

  • A growth mindset and experience investing in the learning, development, belonging, and impact of your peers

  • A passion for and experience with driving B2B and/or B2C product direction and developing product platforms

  • Experience with crafting delightful user facing product experiences that enable customization and categorization

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

  • 2+ years of experience operating in a technical lead capacity working on collaboration tools or B2B/B2C SaaS products

  • Advanced education in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a relevant technical field 

  • Experience iterating on core aspects of a product’s identity, authentication, and permissions infrastructure

  • Experiencing redesigning a product’s main home feed/UI 

  • Experience standardizing information architecture and core product frameworks

  • Experience building for the SaaS product customer lifecycle via new pricing tiers or more flexible billing models

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.
