Adobe Design is seeking a strong design leader to join our growing Developer Ecosystem team. This person will help us pave the way for our valuable developer community to build products, extensions, and integrations using the growing host of services that Adobe offers. The Adobe developer platform offers capabilities in a variety of spaces including machine learning and AI, digital imaging, document services, asset management, analytics, and more.

We’re looking for someone who thinks in systems and enjoys solving service design problems at scale. This is a unique opportunity to help us craft a key strategic corner of an established, but rapidly growing company and to create a platform on which people will build amazing things. You’ll also be part of a larger team that focuses on centralized design efforts like design language, designer tooling, brand + icons, content strategy, and more.

What you’ll be working on

  • Translate complex problems into practical design solutions that are grounded in user research.
  • Bring design to life. We value all types of prototyping.
  • Collaborate with product development teams and other designers from conception through implementation.
  • Understand and advocate for the customer. Work with researchers (or conduct your own) from customer discovery through more discrete usability testing.
  • Have meaningful ownership. You’ll think in both big-picture concepts and ground-level implementation details.
  • Give and receive critique in regular design and experience reviews. Articulate strategy behind design decisions.
  • Evangelize for good design. Lead by example and show design-thought leadership through collaborative sessions and workshops with product and engineering partners.

What you’ll bring to the team

  • Experience using design thinking and service design tools to solve complex business problems.
  • Experience collaborating on teams with many moving parts.
  • A proven track record of designs that meet user needs and business requirements.
  • Experience designing for SaaS products and enterprise UX. Bonus if you have experience working on products focused for developers.
  • A desire to go beyond pixels. You seek to have an influential role with the product team as a driver for design process and product strategy.
  • Creative and analytical skills to facilitate research, synthesize and communicate insights that inspire design opportunities.
  • Strong interpersonal, written, and oral communication skills

Candidate must be able to work on site, at the Adobe office in San Francisco, California.
