Overview

We’re looking for a Growth Design Manager to join our team and provide immediate impact to Creative Cloud’s user acquisition, retention, and engagement strategies.

You are a design leader who embraces a hacker mindset, but can drive quality experiences with your user-centered approach, business acumen, and ability to ruthlessly prioritize. A bias for action and a results orientation leads you to want to ship designs fast, learn from both quantitative and qualitative data, and iterate quickly.

You have demonstrated a track record of leading teams to design and ship products not only that you’re proud of, but have a proven purpose and need. Design is at the forefront of everything you do. You are passionate about bringing creativity to everyone.

Adobe Design works directly with executives, product managers and engineering leadership to bring great products to life. This position is in San Francisco, California.

What you’ll do:

  • Provide leadership and regular feedback to a team of designers that contribute to various products
  • Connect people, ideas, and processes to achieve collaborative problem solving and integrated solutions
  • Be an advocate for the design team and represent their work and interests to product management and other partner organizations
  • Foster an inclusive culture that promotes psychological safety, experimentation, transparency, and teamwork
  • Resource and guide design development and production from planning all the way through delivery and implementation
  • Lead through example by maintaining a high bar for quality and user-centric experiences
  • Communicate the big picture while working with individual designers to translate strategic goals into the details of their everyday work
  • Motivate, rally, and coach a team of inspired, extraordinary designers
  • Balance a growth hacking mindset, ambiguity, and design quality standards
  • Develop, lead and inspire a multidisciplinary design team, encompassing visual design, UX, and prototyping

What you’ll need to succeed:

  • Leadership experience managing a team of visual, UX, and product designers
  • A degree in a design-related field (HCI, interaction, visual), or comparable work experience
  • Keen understanding of the ever-changing landscape of performance marketing assets (Facebook, Instagram, Google, Snap, etc) and channel communications (Email, rich media mobile push notifications, in-app notifications)
  • Understanding of acquisition & conversion, metrics-driven design, and internationalization
  • Strong operational skills with the ability to drive initiatives and consensus across organizations with varying priorities
  • Excellent communication skills, and the ability to connect with others and inspire
  • Respect for all opinions on design irrelevant of experience
  • Conflict resolution skills, and the ability to coach others to effectively resolve differences
