  • Drive democratization of data through creation of new datasets and tooling
  • Design and surface metrics to guide decision making
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams including Product, Engineering, Research, Design, Sales, and Marketing

Teams we're currently hiring for:

Figma Editor: this team works on the heart and soul of our core product and has set a new standard for what's possible on the web. Our users spend hours in the Editor each day brainstorming, iterating on designs, crafting prototypes, and getting feedback at all stages of the creative process.

Growth Monetization: We're looking for a Data Scientist to own one of the company's most important charters - accelerating the growth of Figma's self-serve business. As a Data Scientist on the Monetization Growth team, this role will own one of our most critical business metrics - free to paid conversion - and move them by connecting users to the compelling value that Figma's premium offerings can unlock. You will tackle exciting challenges with real revenue impact, and build the best monetization experience for our users by developing hypotheses to improve our growth flywheel and further differentiate our paid plans.

We'd love to hear from you if you have:
  • 3+ years relevant work experience supporting a Product offering by way of data insights
  • Fluency in SQL
  • Proficiency in Python, R or similar scripting language
