Our company

At Adobe, we're changing the world. How? We give people the tools to bring their ideas to life and create content that makes life more fun and work more meaningful. We give businesses and organizations the power to truly engage their customers. We're the ones behind the gorgeously designed content that streams across your laptop, TV, phone, and tablet every day-and we're the ones who harness the massive power of big data to help companies move from data to insight and insight to action by delivering content that people crave most.

We're a company that understands that product innovation comes from people innovation, and that's why we invest in cultivating leaders throughout the organization. If you're passionate about leading from where you sit, join us.

The challenge

Search is a critical part of Adobe's Creative Cloud offering. Creative professionals and novice users alike need quick access to their files, libraries, and the variety of creative assets they work with every day, from brushes to colors and beyond. They need to find what they've created, the things that have been shared with them, and even have the opportunity to search a marketplace of stock photos, illustrations, and design assets.

We're building a team to create a world-class search experience for the Creative Cloud, with aggressive goals and executive support at the highest levels. We're going beyond keyword search, enabling innovative search features that understand our customers' workflows, and the world of creative composition.

What leading at Adobe means

At Adobe, we're passionate about developing leaders at all levels of the organization from individual contributors to people managers. Anyone who's considering a career with us should know that we evaluate leadership based on these five capabilities:

Demonstrating Strong EQ (Be Aware) - Having a keen sense of self awareness is the foundation of leadership at Adobe.

And whether you're in headquarters, New York, London, Tokyo or Bangalore, you're attuned to emotional, situational and cultural surroundings and adapt your approach accordingly.

Selecting Talent (Be a Recruiter) - You're on top of current and future talent needs as the business evolves because one of your key goals is to build high performing teams.

You're an inspirational and effective coach; a leader who discusses expectations, feedback and development regularly with your direct reports. To succeed in this role, you'll need to address performance gaps early and effectively, and be open to seeking feedback from others to improve your performance and your team's.

Leading Change (Be an Agent of Change) - Change leadership is what you do! You proactively identify opportunities to align team goals with organizational change. You're great at building support for change because you communicate with conviction and you help those around you to see both the rational and mechanics for business changes and how to adapt accordingly.

Scaling the Business (Be an Owner) - You're someone who sees and understands the vision of the company. You're able to articulate business strategy and develop business processes, systems and structures to make performance sustainable. Your mission is to deliver an exceptional customer experience by promoting shared goals and driving accountability.

At Adobe, you will be immersed in an exceptional work environment that is recognized throughout the world on Best Companies lists . You will also be surrounded by colleagues who are committed to helping each other grow through our unique Check-In approach where ongoing feedback flows freely.
