    What's your day to day like as CEO of figma? Are you still designing things?

      Hey, David! I'm not assigned to any engineering or design tasks currently. I'm proud to have hired a design + engineering team that is WAY stronger than me :)

      Don't get me wrong — I give strong feedback when it's important and try to steer things in the right direction — but I don't think I'd pass our current design / engineering hiring bar.

      In terms of my day to day, it's pretty varied. Things you might find me spending time on in a given day: supporting the team on various ongoing product efforts, talking with customers in person or via Intercom, making sure everyone at Figma knows (and is bought into) what's going on and LOTS of recruiting: https://www.figma.com/careers if you are interested!
