Figma is a professional quality design tool. It was made specifically for UI design, and it runs in the browser so entire teams can share work and communicate in one place.

We are building this because we believe that recent changes in web technologies make it possible to create a revolutionary tool that changes how design is done going forward.

Engineers at Figma love thinking about new ways to make the design process faster and less frustrating. They enjoy working with others and are excited to have a large impact on a growing company that will change the way that product teams work together.
