The opportunity

We are looking for a Senior Designer to join the Creative Cloud team!

As creative work becomes increasingly collaborative, we are seeking a Senior Designer to focus on users’ creative identity. You will collaborate across multiple product and design teams to define how users showcase their interests and activities so that we can connect users and teams across Creative Cloud.

We seek someone with a deep understanding of public and private identity. You will define flexible frameworks for user customization. And your empathy for our varied user types will help us define experiences that feel relevant and essential in empowering meaningful connection based on the users’ goals. If you are eager to drive the continued evolution of the connected Creative Cloud ecosystem, we’d love to speak with you!

At Adobe, we are crafting next-generation experiences for a wide range of users, across a variety of skills and experiences —from designers to illustrators to photographers and filmmakers and more. While we are working remotely during the pandemic, we work closely every day to make the best products possible. This position can be based in New York City or the San Francisco Bay Area.

What you’ll do

  • Approach problems holistically. Be an influential design leader, helping your cross-functional peers define strategy, requirements, and experiments to optimize multiple touchpoints of the funnel (SEO, targeted landing pages, on-boarding, communications, signed in/out workflows, etc.).
  • Imbue empathy - Uncover opportunities to decrease friction and enable new pathways by talking to and listening to users about their frustrations and goals.
  • Get results. As a core member of the team, you will work closely with Creative Cloud leadership, cross- functional leads, and drive design to meet/exceed established goals. You will partner with design and product leadership to define strategy and also get into the details by creating final designs to ship.
  • Encourage and enable collaboration. Identify alignment and opportunities for optimized end-to-end experiences across workflows, channels, devices, and segments. Partner with the product, content, engineering, and marketing teams to drive best-in-class experiences.

What you need to succeed

  • A deep understanding of, and empathy for how users like to manage their identity
  • Strong opinions based on research, data, and design intuition, but loosely held so that you leave room for new insights and collaboration to sharpen your opinions
  • A degree in a design-related field (HCI, interaction, visual), or comparable work experience working in agency, start-up, or established consumer-facing software organization
  • Capable of balancing a growth mentality, ambiguity, and design quality standards
  • Strength in both interaction and visual design with an ability to prototype designs in lo-fidelity, quickly sketch rough, strategic concepts, and produce hi-fidelity designs.
  • Have analytical skills to facilitate research, synthesize and communicate findings into insights and opportunity areas that inform and inspire design
  • A desire to go beyond pixels: You think about both the experience and the overall product strategy. - You’re curious about how business, social, technical and behavioral factors impact the UX across customer’s journey inside and outside the product experience.
  • The ability to articulate design decisions and problems persuasively and concisely to all functions of the organization, including executives
  • Excellent communicator and teammate, able to connect with others and inspire action and produce results that exceed our organizational goals and delight our users.
