The Challenge



Adobe is passionate about design and creativity. We belive in creativity for all. Our mission is to provide the tools, inspiration and support for the creative community to empower and enable anyone who has a story to tell or vision to share.

Know the user. Know the magic. Connect the two! At its core, marketing starts with technology and ends with the user, bringing both together in unconventional ways. Our job is to demonstrate how our products tackle the world's problems-from the every day to the epic, from the mundane to the monumental. And we approach marketing in a way that only Adobe can-changing the game, redefining the medium, making the user the priority, and ultimately, letting the technology speak for itself!

The challenge at hand is to find insights to define the strategy, requirements and execute to take an industry-standard, loved product to new levels of growth.

If you are an innovative product marketer, feel compassion and advocate for the customer, optimally challenge the status quo, and have a bias for action, this may be the right role for.

The ideal candidate has experience launching new offerings, including tablet apps, identifying insights to drive strategy, developing hard-hitting positioning & messaging, and driving engagement with new product capabilities. The ability to grasp and translate technical capabilities into tangible benefits and value propositions are essential.

Core Responsibilities:

  • Clearly define target audiences including key attributes, needs, motivations and barriers and collaborate with your business partners to refine marketing strategies to deliver an amazing customer experience.
  • Develop a deep understanding of, and compassion with, student, consumer, SMB and enterprise audiences through market research, insights and relationships with the customer base.
  • Drive execution of our go-to-market strategy for new offerings and our continually evolving existing product.
  • Develop value proposition, product positioning and messaging for the target segments and work collaboratively with world-wide internal teams (Campaign, PR, social, field, etc) to ensure its implementation across all customer and sales channels.
  • Ensure the strategy is working by monitoring measures of success, holding partner teams accountable for their piece of the puzzle, and ensuring that all pieces ladder up to the most effective path to the revenue and customer goals.
