About Figma
Dylan Field and Evan Wallace co-founded Figma in 2012 with the vision of building tools for designers in the browser. Their goal was to create the first design tool that combined the accessibility of the Web with the functionality of a native app. Today Figma is a platform with tools and spaces to support the entire product development process—idea to design to build—and has simplified collaboration for companies like Microsoft, Uber, and The New York Times to name a few. 

At Figma, we celebrate and support our differences. We know employing a team rich in diverse backgrounds, experiences, and opinions allows our employees, products, and community to flourish. Figma is an equal opportunity workplace—we are dedicated to equal employment opportunities regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national orientation, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status.

An Insider's view of Figma

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned that so much of engineering is collaborative. Good engineers not only produce in-code solutions to complex problems, but can also communicate and manage stakeholders, work with other engineers, and mentor and grow folks on their teams. I love that Figma values and encourages all of the non-technical aspects of engineering.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

As Figma's first solutions architect, I have an incredible opportunity to build a program from scratch and be an equal partner for both our customers and our sales team. As a parent, my kids come first. This has never been in question—instead I'm met with support and flexibility to be able to prioritize family, health, or work depending on the day.
