Changing the world through digital experiences is what Adobe’s all about. We give everyone from emerging artists to global brands everything they need to design and deliver exceptional digital experiences! We’re passionate about empowering people to create beautiful and powerful images, videos, and apps, and transform how companies interact with customers across every screen.
We’re on a mission to hire the very best and are committed to creating exceptional employee experiences where everyone is respected and has access to equal opportunity.
We realize that new ideas can come from everywhere in the organization, and we know the next big idea could be yours!
Adobe is bringing together the best-in-breed experiences across Adobe’s Creative Cloud, Document Cloud, and Marketing Cloud into an end-to-end platform that enables people to get more done together.
Our cloud platform supports these experiences with a set of services that will reflect a common user model, will support service business models, and will rely on secure and scalable technology.
Our team is re-inventing how these offerings come together as a single source of truth for Adobe customers, and we are looking for a product manager to help define and build the next-generation platform and integrations that will be the foundation of our partner and developer ecosystem.
The Foundation team offers an impressive suite of developer efficiency products used across Adobe, and they are the backbone to millions of customer experiences.
However, there’s always room for improvement. Adobe engineers struggle to discover these products and are largely left to integrate and manage it all themselves.
They also must keep pace with ever-evolving practices for ensuring secure, reliable, resilient, and efficient software. We believe that we can better support Adobe engineers by deeper connecting our products across important engineering workflows and raising the level of abstraction to reduce the burden of software and infrastructure ownership operating multi-cloud.
We are seeking a senior product manager that will help drive the next evolution of our developer productivity products. Your mission is to simplify and accelerate the software development experience at Adobe.
You will deeply understand and triangulate across team needs, product analytics, and external industry innovation to offer outstanding experiences to Adobe engineers.
Within Foundation Product Management this is a cross cutting function, and we’re on a mission to raise the level of product thinking across the organization.
This is a unique opportunity for you to help shape our product management practices and partner closely with engineering teams through this evolution.
