Job Description

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

The Cloud Technology organization builds platform and client services that are foundational building blocks for many other Adobe products and services. Areas of focus include: identity, security, cloud storage, e-commerce, workflow management, synchronization, customer facing web apps, scalability, infrastructure management and search, just to name a few. Our mission is to build highly scalable, highly available and highly resilient services that fulfill the business objectives of Adobe.

The Adobe Platform Team (aka Project Ethos) is looking for a Technical Lead/Architect to further our organization-wide software and infrastructure technology. Ethos promotes software containerization, secure orchestration, coupled with continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD). We create tools, processes, and workflows that connect and empower hundreds of internal development teams. You'll be implementing complex distributed systems while rethinking existing ones. Our technology platform is widely used across the company, so this role will expose you to many corners of Adobe and its teams. Because this is a leadership position, we're also looking for someone who wants to take the reins on major decisions and architectural choices.

* We're building the platform to run Adobe's web, big data, and machine learning services.


* Our team of 50+ people works in smaller groups of 3-5 developers. This allows us to be agile while working as part of a larger organization.


* We're globally distributed but remain tight-knit. The group is in India, Romania, New York City, Lehi, and San Jose just to name a few.


* Our product and teams are growing. Though we are established, in production, and iterating, there are plenty of challenges to overcome, decisions to be made, and new development to do.



Some of the technologies we build on:

* Container and orchestration ecosystem: docker, kubernetes (k8s), mesos


* Many databases, caches, and queues: postgres, redis, kafka, spark, etc.


* Automation frameworks: salt, chef, ansible, etc.


* Languages: python, go, rails, java, bash


* Providers: AWS, Azure, datacenter



Responsibilities:

* Lead architecture and implementation for complicated distributed computing challenges.


* Work in a fast-paced agile environment, planning features and prioritizing changes based on team goals, product usage, and user feedback.


* Collaborate and coordinate with partners and stakeholders around the globe. Our team is composed of developers across the U.S. and our larger team is distributed internationally.


* Be an internal and external representative of the product: presentations, whitepapers, and continuous team alignment based on flexible travel


* Limited on-call rotation for subject matter expertise to facilitate mentorship, handoff, and early-release diagnostics.


* Strategically align current and future development needs with emerging products and/or open-source communities.



What you need to succeed:

* 10+ years of relevant industry experience.


* Expert level understanding of software containers, container orchestration, and their extended problem space.


* Desire for ownership of the full lifecycle of a project from concept to completion.


* Excellent and effective communication skills; on our geographically distributed team, sometimes it takes extra effort to connect.


* B.S. or above degree in Computer Science or related technical field.
