A better way to design. Design, prototype, and gather feedback all in one place

Software Engineer, New Grad (2021)

Apply now

At Figma, we tackle a wide range of technical challenges: from designing powerful but accessible features in a complex stateful application, to scaling a realtime web service to hundreds of thousands of users. We work across many stacks and technologies, but we don’t expect anyone to know them all! Most of our engineers specialize in one area of our stack, while still being flexible enough to pick up new languages and make changes across systems when needed. As a member of our team, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to both leverage your existing strengths and learn new skills.

More than anything, we seek engineers with strong coding fundamentals and a track record of high quality engineering. We work in a highly collaborative environment, where most projects are owned by small groups of 2-3 people. We strive to foster a positive, inclusive culture - you can read more about our engineering values on our blog. If you’d like to join us on our mission to make design accessible to all, let’s talk!

What you'll be doing:

  • Collaborate with engineers, product managers, designers, and QA to design features and break down high-level goals into tasks and timelines
  • Build, document and maintain tests, features and infrastructure
  • Communicate and document architectural designs and requirements
  • Provide thoughtful feedback to others on the team
  • Help interview and recruit more talented engineers to Figma

We're looking for someone with:

  • At least one previous software engineering internship
  • Solid technical knowledge including CS fundamentals and data structures
  • Experience with one or more general purpose programming languages, including but not limited to: Javascript, Ruby, Python, C++, Objective-C, or Java
  • Ability to communicate technical problems and solutions

In your first few months, you'll:

  • Work with an onboarding buddy to complete your first code changes
  • Start to build deep context and expertise in Figma's tech stack and product
  • Ship your first user-facing feature
