The Opportunity

The Digital Video & Audio (DVA) team at Adobe is seeking an Experience Designer to rethink color workflows for a new generation of creative pros! The mission of DVA is to bring the power of our best-in-class tools, like Premiere Pro and After Effects, to the everyday creator. This role will be essential in making that happen by unwinding an inherently complex problem space into an approachable, yet powerful, set of workflows. This could be you!

The ideal candidate will take great pleasure in all these activities: whiteboarding with engineers, getting into the nitty gritty of color; intimately understanding the how’s and why’s of the creative’s work; and iterating on user experience designs until you make the user jump with joy. This hinges on you being fearless in chasing down all the implications behind the underlying technology, taking the knowledge gained from user-centered research, and synthesizing both sides down into clear designs.

What you’ll be working on

  • Design color tools and workflows that elegantly transition from the simple to the most powerful.
  • Design color tools and workflows that elegantly transition from the simple to the most powerful.

  • Evangelize and communicate your designs through sketches, storyboards, hi-fidelity mockups, prototypes, or animations.
  • Engage with Engineering to understand the feasibility of your designs, proposing smart alternatives along the way and creating detailed design specifications from which they’ll build.

What you need to succeed

Must-haves:

  • Ability to share design rationale persuasively and concisely to all functions of the organization, including executives
  • Ability to prototype your ideas to get feedback on your ideas

  • 5+ years in related field
  • Experience building and shipping software
  • BA/BFA degree, or equivalent work experience, with an emphasis on human computer interaction, visual design, interaction design, or related field

Nice-to-Haves

  • A technical background in any production or post-production field
  • Experience designing for creative professionals in the productivity space
