    Adobe Goes Back to School with Burnham Grammar

    A great deal is written about the UK 'skills gap' and whether we are adequately equipping the next generation with the right tools to help themselves, and indeed our economy, thrive in the future.

  • When Cynthia Lu, from Adobe Research, set out to bring a data-driven approach to the creative process, she succeeded. See how she uses data and Adobe Sensei to further creativity: #AdobeLife

    Using Data to Further Creativity

    Research scientist Jingwan (Cynthia) Lu first came to Adobe Research as an intern while pursuing her PhD in computer science at Princeton. She completed four internships with the research team, publishing four research papers in leading venues and producing a landmark technology, Real Brush, which became a digital painting feature in Adobe Photoshop Sketch.

Adobe – Why Work For Us?


We've been in the neighborhood for more than 30 years, and we're still pushing the envelope in creativity, technology and innovation. Only Adobe gives everyone — from emerging artists to global brands — everything they need to design and deliver exceptional digital experiences.

You know us as the company that makes tools creatives can’t live without – like Photoshop, Illustrator and Premiere. We're mission critical to the world’s largest brands, as they market their products and services to their customers with our digital marketing solutions. You also know us as the company that created the PDF, the single most used document format in the world. We pushed all this to the cloud, and haven't looked back since.

If you're ready to explore your passion and make an impact, then Adobe is the place for you.



Since its earliest days, Adobe has been committed to a set of core values that were embodied by its founders and remain the cornerstone of our corporate philosophy. These values shape everything we do, from how we develop and market our products to how we serve our customers, employees, and communities. These are the four tenets we live by:


Adobe has more than 30 years of innovation with constant profitability and growth — but to keep up that pace we’ll need you!

Our University Talent team visits a number of college campuses around the United States every year, and you can check this calendar to see when we'll be in your area. If we don't visit your school, we still want to hear from you. Submit your resume online, and take the time to fill out your profile. Be thorough and accurate; the more detail you provide, the better your chances of finding a job you actually want.

Explore our Adobe Life Blog and watch this video to give you an inside look at our culture and offices.

Current Students and MBA’s should also scope out our Summer Internship Programs.



It's the little things that make a difference, like on-site massage and bike repair, pet insurance, fun after-work activities, and much more! We've got a complete list of benefits for you, but here are a few unique perks that set Adobe apart.

Discounts on Adobe products. For your own use, all Adobe software is free of charge. We've also got family and friend discounts.

Education reimbursement program. Adobe provides tuition reimbursement up to US$10,000 per year for approved courses. You can also take advantage of engineering and science courses on the Stanford Instructional Television Network (SITN).

Fitness facilities. Our San Jose campus features a fully equipped gym with weights, machines, cardio equipment, fitness classes, and even a full-length outdoor basketball court alongside the bocce ball court. Employees at other locations receive health club subsidies to be used for fitness facilities of their choice.

Great food. Our cafeterias serve delicious, healthy meals. You'll also find full-service coffee bars for your cappuccino fix and free snacks in every kitchen.


We are also committed to helping each other grow through our unique Check-In approach, where ongoing feedback flows freely.

As great as any location might be, it’s the people that make it downright amazing. In every business unit, at every office, you’ll discover passionate employees and a strong sense of community. You'll soon discover that when you're here, you don’t feel as though you are amongst colleagues, but rather an extended family, a place where community is valued and prioritized, all the while proving to be a place where one inspired person can make a difference.

Leslie – Group Program Manager, Platform Business Unit

Rupen – Architect, Mobile and Devices Business Unit

James – Director, Associate General Counsel, Legal Department
“I want to come to work because the environment is packed with so many smart, driven individuals. So if you’re looking for a place that is driven by passion, rewards top achievers and has a reputation for producing outstanding products, then come check out Adobe."

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Adobe.


    Was contacted by a recruiter from Adobe. Had a call with a recruiter and then the hiring manager within the week and then 2 more team members by the following week. Was flown out to NY to present a product of choice to a panel of 3 team members which included the hiring manager. The team members asked questions as if they would have been a prospect in a meeting. Overall, the process took about 3-4 weeks. The recruiters and hiring manager were great to work with and were transparent and timely throughout the entire process.
