Remote Job Description

Figma’s users, customers and employees are heavily international, and we’ve recently significantly increased our marketing efforts.  As a result, we are looking for a self-starter to join our dynamic, tight-knit global team of legal professionals as Marketing Counsel.  In this role you will be responsible for counseling our marketing teams and Figma’s trademark strategy (trademark filings are handled by outside counsel).  As the first counsel in this role, you will also work to build out processes and procedures that allow you to scale as the company continues to grow.

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

  • Licensed to practice law in the United States 
  • 5+ years (or more) experience advising SaaS companies on marketing matters, or equivalent experience.  Trademark experience is a plus, but is not specifically required.
  • In house experience required.  Law-firm experience a plus, but not required.  
  • Outstanding communication skills both written and verbal, with a strong attention to detail
  • Ability to provide clear explanations to members of other teams, including senior management
  • Ability to think creatively and effectively balancing legal constraints with business goals
  • Collaborative approach, with strong ability to build relationships, gain credibility, and partner with others
  • Willingness to take on projects both large and small
  • Confidence operating in a fast-paced, rapidly changing 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. 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.
