A little bit about us… 
The $50 billion medical apparel industry is antiquated, highly fragmented and, until FIGS, was driven solely by low-cost providers offering a limited selection of poor quality products sold through third party distributors. FIGS is revolutionizing the medical apparel industry by creating the highest quality medical apparel in the world and by selling directly to medical professionals through our branded ecommerce site. 
FIGS’ foundation is built on product quality, and we have a relentless focus on three key areas: fabric, fit and function. We developed our proprietary, performance-oriented fabric technology to meet the demands of the medical profession. FIGS’ Core Collection fabric is antimicrobial, wrinkle resistant, stain and liquid repellant, moisture-wicking, odor proof, lightweight, breathable and offers four-way stretch. Our designs are tailored, sophisticated and innovative, incorporating features such as yoga waistbands, smart storage (pockets, zippers, hidden pockets) and inspirational sayings inside each garment that appeal to modern healthcare professionals. 
By offering a branded and customer-centric online shopping experience, we are changing how medical professionals buy their workwear. Through our website, social media, and participation in medical conferences and events, we have built a strong following within the medical community and a meaningful connection with our customers, which allows us to understand their needs and to ensure that FIGS is continuously improving and innovating. 
FIGS’ Threads for Threads initiative is central to our mission. FIGS has donated hundreds of thousands of scrubs to healthcare providers in need in over 35 countries.

An Insider's view of FIGS

What are some social events your company does?

FIGS is a super social company! The team regularly puts on happy hours or parties and I’ve met some of my best friends at FIGS this way. One of my FAVORITE things is the volunteering we've done. We’ve done beach cleanups in the past and regularly go to hand out coffee, snacks and other treats to hospital employees as a thank you!


Social Media Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration is so important and can happen so easily. In the cafe grabbing a coffee, over Slack between meetings. We're always talking, exchanging ideas and building on them together.


Director of Product Development

How does the company support your career growth?

At FIGS everyone is treated like an owner and empowered to take on more responsibility. You don't hear the word "no" often and hard work is always recognized. I started as a social media manager here at FIGS and am now the VP of Brand. It's been the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life.
