👋🏽 Hello

I'm Badrul, a Product Manager Angel Investor. I enjoy building products that improve people's lives.

Product Manager

I'm currently a Product Manager at Square helping small business owners choose the best tools for their business.

Previously, I was the 18th employee and first Product Manager at Figma. I joined before the public release and led the product initiatives for Figma Community, Plugins, and several major upgrades for the core design tool. Kevin Kwok basically wrote about my entire career in this post. I'm also widely considered to be the funniest person to have ever worked at Figma.

🔭 Angel Investor

I'm open minded when it comes to early products with a bias towards larger bets that will take a few years to realize. I especially like creative tools, collaborative experiences, and good people.

Some of the companies I'm lucky to work with:

🏠 Personal

Happily married and currently living in New York City. Before this, I spent 5 great years in San Francisco where I tried my best to become an outdoor enthusiast but gave up. I went to college and began my career in Ann Arbor which is, imo, the perfect town. I grew up in Detroit and it continues to shape me.
