We’re looking for an Android engineer to join our native apps team and help build our first real mobile offerings. On this team, you’ll work with others on our newly announced Android app that will make it easy for engineers, designers and PMs to collaborate in Figma.
You’ll work closely with designers, PMs, and other engineers to re-think our web products so they work seamlessly on mobile. You’ll take part in designing features and breaking down high level goals into concrete tasks and timelines. As an early member you’ll also help set up our team processes for testing and deployment and set the tone for mobile team culture.

    • Participate in user research and testing to better understand our customers
    • Share responsibility for testing, releasing, and maintaining our mobile apps
    • Communicate and document architectural designs and requirements
    • Provide thoughtful feedback to others on the team
    • Help interview and recruit more talented engineers to Figma

    • 2+ years of professional experience building Android applications 
    • Extensive understanding of mobile product development
    • Proactive communication skills and a desire to work in a collaborative environment
    • TypeScript/JavaScript experience is a plus, since we use it for many systems at Figma, but is not required
    • 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.
