Are you the next great Adobe Web PM?
I’m a pissed-off Web designer at heart. I came to work at Adobe because I was sick of software getting in the way of my ideas, and rather than just bitch about it, I wanted to try making things better.
Now there’s an opening for a new Sr. Product Manager, Web Design. Job description highlights:
As the Web Design Product Manager, you are responsible for defining and managing Adobe’s efforts to enable designers to create websites and online businesses. You must have a deep understanding of the design market, web workflows and a passion for creating great products. [...]
You know the ins and outs of web and design workflows, products and related technologies.[...] You are the product champion, an effective evangelist with the ability to inspire others with your vision. At the same time, you must be able to recognize a good idea and act on it, regardless of where it came from. [...] Ultimately, you are decisive, care about the details, and are not afraid to lead. If you don’t like to be the center of attention, you need not apply.
I know the new product that’s in development, and it’s cool. If, like me, you love the Web & want to improve the way visual people create for it, and if you’re up for living in Seattle, drop these guys a line.
