Adobe gives everyone — from emerging artists to global brands — everything they need to design and deliver exceptional digital experiences.
How to Get Hired
We asked Adobe Systems Incorporated for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We don't hire culture fits. We hire those who are "oddly attractive." Here are the characteristics we look for.
- Culture complement – Someone who adds to the team culture rather than one who brings more of the same. We’re looking for candidates who bring creative friction, new energy and a different perspective.
- Customer empathy – We’re looking for employees who have “OCD” (obsessive customer DNA). They are individuals who lead first with customer needs and always innovate on behalf of what’s best for the customer.
- Clean thinking – Individuals who thrive at Adobe are those who love to be challenged with new problems and those who are able to simplify the abstract.
- Cope-abiilty – This is “professionalism under pressure.” It’s how you go about doing things under pressure; not so much the why. We’re looking for individuals who are comfortable with pressure and can handle stress with grace.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Reach out, engage, and ask for a meeting. Adobe’s a big city brand but we have small town values here. We love making new connections. Reach out to any member of our Talent team or an Adobe employee you know. Let them know that you’re interested in a specific role at Adobe and why you’re the best person for the challenge.
You can find us social media, engage in conversations with us and show us your passion for the work we do.
Ask for a meeting. This tells us that you're serious about the opportunity and that you're confident in your ability to make an impact at Adobe.
