Figma is growing our team of passionate people on a mission to make design accessible to all. Born on the Web, Figma helps entire product teams brainstorm, design and build better products — from start to finish.

From great products to long-lasting companies, we believe that nothing great is made alone—come make with us!

  • Work with a wide range of cross-functional stakeholders to derive requirements and architect shared datasets; ability to document, simplify and explain complex problems to different types of audiences.
  • Establish best practices for the development of specialized data sets for analytics and modeling.

We'd love to hear from you if you have:

  • 4+ years in a relevant field
  • Fluency with both SQL and Python
  • Familiarity with Snowflake, dbt, Dagster, and ETL/reverse ETL tools.
  • Excellent judgment and creative problem solving skills
  • A self-starting mindset along with strong communication and collaboration skills

While not required, it’s an added plus if you also have:

  • Knowledge in data modeling methodologies to design and build robust data architectures for insightful analytics
  • Experience with business systems such as Salesforce, Customer IO, Stripe, NetSuite is a big plus.
