Sr Experience Design, Adobe Spark
San Francisco, California / Adobe
Posted: Sep 27, 2017
Video creation and consumption is increasingly impacting how we share stories, promote a business or cause, and engage with our audience. We're looking for an outstanding Sr. Experience Designer to join our team and provide immediate impact to Spark's product evolution and strategy. You have demonstrated a track record of designing and shipping products not only that you're proud of, but have a proven purpose and need. You empathize with users, actively seek feedback, and embrace multiple contributors to the design process. Your interaction, systems, and visual design skills is what make you a great designer. But, your ability to balance business awareness, technology, organizational agility, and love of all forms of data is what makes you amazing. Design is at the forefront of everything we do. You'll be a part of enabling others to share that love.
About our product:
Our mission is to give a voice to the next generation of visual storytellers. The products and experiences we design will be used by folks at school, work, and in the comfort of their homes. We're talking teachers, students, non-profits, small businesses, online marketers, bloggers, office workers and individuals with a story to share. These everyday-users want professional-looking results to stand out and engage with their audiences but don't have time to learn professional design products. Learn more at http://spark.adobe.com/
