Figma was founded in 2012 by Dylan Field and Evan Wallace, a computer science duo who met while attending Brown University. They realized that the growing tech industry needed well-designed software more than ever, but tools to create those interfaces were stuck in the print era. Field and Wallace decided to build a new breed of application, making Figma the first interface design tool based in the browser. Thanks to technologies like WebGL, browsers could finally support such powerful creative software.
These days, Figma is leading the collaboration trend in the design community by helping UX/UI designers work easily with developers, marketers and product managers. Top Silicon Valley investors saw the potential in the company, with Index Ventures, Greylock Partners and LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner investing $18 million. With that backing, Figma is pursuing its purpose to help teams around the world design great software.
Our staff is a diverse group who bring an eclectic set of experiences from Atlassian, Dropbox, Facebook, Flipboard, Macromedia/Adobe and Medium. We enjoy sitting together at lunch every day in our airy SOMA office, learning more about each other at our Show and Tells, and hosting our design friends during #Shindigma events. We focus on building our software with care and craftsmanship -- our give you a taste of that -- and we welcome talented people from all backgrounds. Many of us have special spaces in our lives -- whether it be family, social organizations, schools, or former companies -- and we're doing all we can to make Figma another one.
Figma is the first professional-grade, online tool created specifically for interface design. The tool is based entirely in the browser and enables teams to collaborate in real-time. It offers the speed and stability of powerful design programs like Adobe with the versatility and collaborative flexibility of online apps like Google Docs. With Figma the design process is shareable across teams, no matter where the members are located.
