We are the leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Everyone—from design professionals, engineers and architects to digital artists, students and hobbyists—uses Autodesk software to unlock their creativity and solve big, tough global challenges.
How to Get Hired
We asked Autodesk, Inc. 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?
Autodesk’s mission is to help people imagine, design and create a better world. Our goals are lofty, so to be a great fit at Autodesk, prospective employees need to believe the mission and fit in culturally. To thrive at Autodesk, you don’t necessarily need to be an architect or fluent in our latest 3D modeling software – you need to demonstrate a real passion for your work. We look for personalities, tinkerers, problem solvers, positive attitudes, risk takers, and above all – respectful folks who will work hard to get the job done.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Think of your application or cover letter like a date or a dinner party conversation. Those tend to go when well you are yourself. The applications that capture our attention are the simple and honest ones – the ones that show off your curiosity, your passions, your interests, and are authentic. Above all, keep it short and sweet!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We’re looking for “roll up your sleeves” software engineers, UX designers, cloud and DevOps, digital storytellers, growth hackers, next gen marketers, and sales persons. These are only a few – we’re growing and hiring across the board.
