If you are a strategic problem solver who thrives on being "in the pixels," we want to meet you!

Creatives around the world learn how to use Adobe products through instructional videos, images, and sample files.

  • Developing orientation and instructional content, in collaboration with industry-leading instructors, content strategists, and the Photoshop and Lightroom product teams

  • Closely observing and participating in user research, discovering how creatives pick up and adopt Adobe's tools and iterating to construct more effective and engaging learn experiences

  • Motivating people to keep growing and exploring by developing rewarding, inspiring, and play-filled instruction

Quotes from people currently working on this team:

  • "It's pretty special to work on tools for creative people. I'm constantly flexing my empathy muscles, thinking of everyone I've come into contact with who has used Adobe to make their creative dreams come to life."

  • "One of the best parts about this job is that I'm able to use the tools I want (the tools that already fit into my workflow). I get to work with a small team surrounded by a large group of talented people throughout Adobe with helpful insights and skills."

What you'll bring to the team


  • A passion for design and a 5+year track record of strategic problem solving that meets user needs, product requirements, and business objectives
