People Operations / Entry level

This job is no longer accepting applications.

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, create, test, and ship better designs, together. From great products to long-lasting companies, we believe that nothing great is made alone—come make with us!

As Figma’s People Ops Associate you’ll be a key player in building processes and programs to support our People Operations strategy during a dynamic and high growth phase. You’ll leverage your extraordinary attention to detail to support day to day operations for the employee lifecycle (onboarding to offboarding) while providing excellent support to Figmates globally. 

If you’re excited about growing your People Operations experience in a fast-paced and ever-changing work environment by supporting and improving all People functions, then this might be the role for you!

This is a full time role that can be held from one of our US hubs or remotely in the United States.

What you’ll do at Figma:

  • Act as an initial point of contact for a wide range of questions covering topics including benefits, visas, onboarding, orientation events, new hires and People systems
  • Manage global onboarding and offboarding processes including HR system workflows, background checks, I-9s, and communication with new hires
  • Lead first day onboarding sessions for new hires
  • Process a variety of employment-related changes within our HRIS system including employee status changes, pay changes, job changes, and leaves of absence
  • Maintain data integrity in our HR systems with a high level of accuracy and confidentiality to ensure compliance with global regulations
  • Manage benefit enrollments and leaves of absence
  • Working with People Operations to maintain security, process and documentation for audits
  • Assist with special projects including learning & development, compensation, performance, and DEI
  • Other duties as assigned

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

  • Experience working in HR/Recruiting as an Associate or Generalist, preferably in a startup environment
  • Love building and executing HR processes during a time of high growth
  • Excellent organizational and time-management skills along with high attention to detail
  • Experience with HRIS & ATS systems (bonus if you have used Greenhouse and Workday)
  • Strong follow-up/follow-through skills, and ability to anticipate potential issues/know when to escalate
  • A roll up your sleeves mentality with excitement to research and learn what you don’t know 
  • A creative and optimistic approach to your work--you generally think “why not?” instead of just “why?”

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. If you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with the points outlined in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
