  • Led a brand’s social presence through massive growth.
  • A detailed understanding of social media platforms from emerging products to user trends to best practices in content creation and distribution.
  • Experience managing social campaigns across multiple social media platforms.
  • The ability to oscillate between high-level, strategic thinking and rolling up your sleeves and dive into the details of the work   
  • A track record of building relationships with creative teams, resulting in strong, creative output that moves brands forward.
  • A self-starter mindset with the ability to quickly learn, adapt and be agile in a constantly evolving environment.

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.
