Our Company

Changing the world through digital experiences is what Adobe's all about. We give everyone-from emerging artists to global brands-everything they need to design and deliver exceptional digital experiences! We're passionate about empowering people to create beautiful and powerful images, videos, and apps, and transform how companies interact with customers across every screen.

We're on a mission to hire the very best and are committed to creating exceptional employee experiences where everyone is respected and has access to equal opportunity. We realize that new ideas can come from everywhere in the organization, and we know the next big idea could be yours!

The Challenge

With the volume and velocity of digital content, the ability to provide provenance and attribution for creators is critical to ensure transparency for consumers. It's also an important part of addressing the spread of disinformation and ultimately restoring trust in media.

The Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) team at Adobe believe that creating a long-term solution is a shared responsibility among creators, technology companies, human rights defenders and media publishers. We will succeed only by joining together to develop an industry-wide standard. Adobe, The New York Times Company and Twitter kicked off the CAI in 2019 with this as our goal. We're building a team to implement authenticity solutions across the Adobe portfolio of tools as well as open-source reference code for the emerging standards.

We are looking for an experienced Program Manager to join our team and hone our product delivery processes. You will work in a collaborative environment where you will interact with many innovative product teams across Adobe and partner companies in the broader CAI ecosystem. You will build roadmaps, synchronize internal product work with external partner development and ensure we are implementing the right processes at the right time. The perfect candidate will have a keen eye for details, deep awareness of tradeoffs and very high standards for product quality and team happiness.

* Work with Adobe's Software Lifecycle team to ensure our products meet (and exceed!) release standards
