Engineering Manager – Feedback & Activity

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, create, test, and ship better designs, together. From great products to long-lasting companies, we believe that nothing great is made alone—come make with us!

We’re looking for leaders across our engineering org who are excited about the challenges that come with rapid growth, and passionate about connecting people together through a positive and inclusive culture. As an Engineering Manager, you’ll work closely with your team, designers, PMs, and other engineering leaders to build and ship products and features that support our vision of helping teams and users collaborate. 
The Feedback and Activity teams are responsible for building the collaborative features that gives Figma its identity. The team works on foundational features and platforms like notifications, comments, and multiplayer. Beyond that, the team is developing some large zero to one initiatives that provide even better ways for users to co-create and inspire each other. 
We’re hiring a seasoned engineering manager who has experience building and supporting full stack, product oriented teams. 

What you’ll do at Figma:

  • Manage, support and grow a diverse team of product/full stack oriented EMs and engineers who own Figma’s collaborative platform. 
  • Partner with other cross functional leaders to set strategy, priorities, and mission for the Activity and Feedback product area. 
  • Work closely with Product, Research, Design, and Data to build the foundation for our product offerings.
  • Establish trust within and across teams by creating accountability and a positive work environment in partnership with other leaders in the organization.

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

  • 4+ years experience managing both individual contributors and engineering managers
  • A product mindset that enables you to work effectively with cross functional peers
  • Experience scaling services and teams in high growth environments
  • A desire to build an inclusive and diverse culture
  • The ability to support and grow senior ICs and managers
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 engineering leadership at Figma but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with the points outlined in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyway. You may be just the right candidate for one of our roles!
