Collaborate from Anywhere: Figma

Design Together While Distributed

Collaborate from Anywhere

Design Together While Distributed

By: Sarah Guo & Greylock Partners

Figma was founded in 2012 with a mission to connect designers virtually, enabling collaboration and communication no matter where they were in the world. Fast forward to 2020, and that original operational intent has paved the way for the company to expand significantly in the face of Covid-19’s impact on the working world. The company has expanded beyond being a collaborative tool for interface designers into a powerful platform that enables the entire product team to participate in the process. Figma continues to rapidly innovate in response to cross-industry challenges of remote team work.

In the latest episode of Greymatter, Figma CEO and co-founder Dylan Field sat down with Greylock general partner Sarah Guo to discuss how the company has evolved to meet a surge in demand, and how he is approaching leadership during this time of great upheaval. Today, the company announced it will adopt a hybrid model going forward, marking a departure from its pre-Covid office culture.

This episode is part of the #WorkFromAnywhere podcast series hosted by Sarah and Greylock partner David Thacker.
