We see what troubles our clients
Not Enough Time
They have to spend too much time on vital, but tedious tasks that could be easily automated. Thing like sales tracking and reporting, clocking in, cash register, tax obligations and more.
Data Not Available
They do not have the peace of mind that comes from always knowing that the business is on track. They have to resort to making decisions based on your gut feeling, which can cause cascading problems.
Client Relationships Underutilized
Customer relationships are crucial to any business. Keeping track of thousands of clients and customers is difficult without the proper tools.

How do we fit together?
Small businesses play a vital role in driving innovation and creativity. My motivation for working on Figure is to become a technological bridge for such businesses to further their impact.
I enjoy working on Figure because we are making a project that actually helps people, and we are doing it with a team that I respect and admire.
We are doing really cool stuff here.
Small businesses are fundamental pieces in the community. Each one weaves into an organic fabric. In Figure, I have the joy and privilege of touching local livelihoods by listening well, dreaming more, and enabling people.
I appreciate that Figure focuses on “only” one product and on the US market. I have the opportunity to influence the result even as a designer and I’m not bothered by any corporate rules.
I have always wanted to make this world a better place to live in. With amazing ideas and even more wonderful team around Figure, this became reality and I’m happy to be part of it.
In Figure, we try to do things right, searching for new, better approaches, but still having in mind our ultimate goal to provide valuable service for our clients. I like that in Figure every opinion is heard, contributing to better product.
Why I like to work in Figure so much? I am surrounded by very talented and friendly people. Every day (literally every day) I learn something new. Our focus to bring our customers the best product gives my work true meaning. I really like this cocktail.
Building the Figure with this team and all these cool people around me brings joy, mutual inspiration, always something new to learn, and overall good feeling that my work can result in positive impact on people’s business and lives (really!).
In Figure I can work with open-minded, proactive and skilled people on a product that helps our customers in their business. We see our contribution to the company’s success, which makes this job meaningful and entertaining.
There are two things that really matter to me at work. People who I work with and impact of what we do. In our small team I appreciate professionalism, cooperation and communication between us. Ideas are welcome, every voice can be heard. And! We help people to make their businesses easier.
I need two things at work, feeling that my work matters and learning new things. Here at Figure I get plenty of both. I’m surrounded by talented people who teach me a lot every day.
Working in Figure is an everyday pleasure for my brain. I always want to have a job which fulfills me and where I can learn and Figure is the one.
The saying goes like this: after working at Figure, Mondays are not to be feared! ^_^
Folk wisdom aside, I really feel lucky to have joined a team (yup, team like in “these guys should give some workshops on this matter”) packed with truly zealous and committed people. Not to mention the daily dose of fresh learning that I get, which can not feel better.
Being a designer in a startup is a huge challenge. It is a long run, long fast-paced ultra marathon in the mountains. Sometimes you don’t know where to go, it’s always up and down. It’s Ultra Marathon of Figure. I love ultra marathons.
