About our host, Figma:

Figma is the first product design tool that’s based in the browser, letting people make app and website interfaces to together in real time. In other words, what Google Drive did for word processing, we’re doing for interface design. No other design tool -- not Photoshop, Illustrator, or Sketch -- lets designers, engineers, marketers and others collaborate in a design file at the same time.

We are hiring engineers to build better design tools for the digital age. Please reach out to Stella Odewumi [masked] or Ryan Kaplan [masked] if interested.
