Overview

Adobe Design is seeking a design leader to join our team in our beautiful open office space in San Francisco’s thriving SOMA district.

Our design team is responsible for the product design of Photoshop and the extended family of Photoshop applications. We work closely with business, marketing, engineering, and research to deeply understand customer needs and deliver the industry standard in creative digital imaging.

From the small details to big-picture feature concepts and long-term strategy, our work is put to the test by millions of customers across a variety of fields and experience levels every single day. This is your chance to define creative tools for creative people, just like you.

The Role

We’re seeking a versatile experience designer who thinks holistically and uses modern tools to quickly evaluate multiple experience directions. One who favors interactive prototypes over flat mockups, but knows what artifact will suffice for each stage of exploration. A champion for patterns that scale across input modalities from mouse, pen, keyboard, touch and on into VR/AR. We’re looking for someone with an uncanny ability to keep the forest in view even while working with a single tree.

In this role, you will:

  • Have substantial ownership through partnership. You’ll make important decisions about the way our product looks, feels, and behaves alongside our many talented product designers, product managers, engineers, and executives.
  • Bring design to life. We value all types of prototyping.
  • Understand and advocate for the customer. Work with researchers (or conduct your own) from customer discovery through more discrete usability testing.
  • Grow. You’ll sharpen your skills and learn how to take ownership of essential aspects of the design.
  • Collaborate. You’ll be part of a very communicative, healthy, product development family whose diversity of thought brings breadth to our ideas and clarity to our refinement.
  • Ship. We ship. You’ll have multiple opportunities to bring the hypothetical to the actual and enjoy seeing your work in the hands of millions.

Requirements

  • Strong prototyping abilities, either via web standards or responsive design tools
  • Experience working in large teams with many moving parts
  • Experience working with or conducting your own research, presenting results and acting on those results
  • Awareness of how visual design languages and UI frameworks affect the design process
  • A mobile-first approach that favors touch-friendly interfaces and responsive grids
  • A proven track record of launching products that delight, innovate and scale
  • Strong social, written, and oral communication skills
  • Experience working iteratively with an agile engineering team
  • Ability to work within a cross-functional team and synthesize feedback and input from multiple partners
  • Willingness and ability to contribute to the creative spirit of the Design team and the company
  • Love of all things design

Additional Information

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in interaction design, new media design, HCI, or related design field
  • 5+ years of product design experience

To be considered for this role please submit a resume and portfolio with examples of process and evolution of your work.
