This position will support engineers and marketing professionals through all stages of development and marketing, from concept to launch. This full-time position would be ideally based in our San Jose, CA office, but remote-work candidates may be considered.

    • Lead product launch processes, including technology release checklists and questionnaires
    • Keep abreast of the rapidly changing industry and legal landscape related to issues associated with digital transformation, user-generated content and associated privacy implications and serve as an internal subject matter authority in those areas
    • Lead a team of one or more legal professionals; provide mentoring, leadership, and be a general resource for the entire Digital Legal team

     

    What you need to succeed

    • The applicants must possess a J.D. Degree, and be an active member of the bar (any jurisdiction).
    • A minimum of 12 years of relevant legal experience (e.g., software licensing, supporting clients in the cloud-based services industry, supporting product development involving web and mobile delivered user experiences)
    • Experience managing legal professionals
    • Effective communication skills, both written and verbal
    • Experience negotiating and drafting transactional agreements (preferably software license agreements)
    • Expertise in privacy and data security issues, including privacy by design
    • Technical background or a geek-level interest in software products and development preferred
    • Commitment to providing clients with high-quality and timely legal advice
    • Proven creative problem-solving capabilities, good business instincts and the ability to apply common sense to both practical and theoretical advice
    • Proven ability to successfully balance and prioritize competing projects/demands
    • Desire to make an impact and build an exciting career with our Legal team
    • Strong leadership abilities; capable of succinctly framing complex legal issues and communicating effectively with all levels of the organization

An Insider's view of Adobe

What are some social events your company does?

We take pride in our culture, and we have a variety of active employee organizations built into the fabric of our site.

How does the company support your career growth?

My Adobe journey began with little experience and lots of drive. I was recruited through the Adobe Digital Academy Program, and I attribute my success to being placed on inclusive teams where each member offered mentorship. Being supported has allowed my work product to exceed expectations and has been instrumental in my overall career growth.
