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 Adobe Illustrator and the growing ecosystem of Illustrator applications. We work closely with business, marketing, engineering, and research to deeply understand customer needs and deliver the industry standard in vector tools.

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.

What you’ll be working on

We’re seeking a designer who thinks holistically and uses modern tools to evaluate concepts quickly. One who favors interactive prototypes over flat mockups and is willing to engage in both exploration of concepts and refinement of details. One with an inquisitive personality and the dream to explore patterns that scale across input modalities from mouse, pen, keyboard, touch and beyond.

In this role, you will:

  • Design and iterate side-by-side with designers, prototypers, engineers, product managers and others.
  • Quickly visualize and prototype ideas to communicate concepts while using – and extending – a design system.
  • Present design ideas to multiple stakeholders and clearly articulate rationale, logic and research as supporting evidence for well thought through design decisions.
  • Participate in all stages of design, from concept to implementation and all the steps in-between.
  • Observe user testing sessions alongside researchers, contributing to the research plan and objectives.
  • Collaborate with a very communicative, healthy, product development family whose diversity of thought brings breadth to our ideas and clarity to our refinement.
  • Participate in peer design critiques to give and receive feedback.
  • Bring your designs to life in shipping products used by millions around the world.

What you’ll bring to the team

  • Enrolled in a college degree program, preferably in design with an emphasis on graphic design, HCI, or related field.
  • Proficient knowledge of Adobe XD, Adobe Illustrator, or other design tools such as Sketch, Figma, etc.
  • Awareness of how visual design languages and UI frameworks affect the design process
  • Strong interpersonal, written and oral communication skills.
  • An eye for detail and a voracious appetite for understanding and deconstructing complicated systems.
  • Willingness and ability to contribute to the creative spirit of the team during your internship.
  • Willingness and ability to meet regularly with teams in other timezones.
  • Experience with motion design and prototyping a plus

How to Apply
