CCX members collaborate across and outside our organization on a wide range of features, fully integrated with front-end teams. We don't just build small pieces of a puzzle in isolation. We understand the workflow from a high level, and that context helps us build the right customer experience.

Who we are

  • We build world-class services at scale that power asset & collaboration experiences for millions of Creative Cloud customers including Creative Cloud Libraries,, and an array of collaboration components.
  • We're not specialists; members of our team have a broad array of tools to meet our goals.
  • We like to research and use new technologies.
  • We don't take ourselves seriously, but we're serious about what we build.

What you'll need to succeed

  • Deep experience designing and building RESTful web services.
  • 10+ years of experience - we like to see a variety of experiences, not just services.
  • B.S. or Masters in Computer Science or equivalent experience and understanding.
  • Ability and desire to work collaboratively in a team environment.
  • History of building micro-services in production environments on AWS and/or Azure.
  • Strong understanding of in-memory caching (e.g., Redis and Memcached) and their relative merits.
  • Proficiency in NoSQL and SQL.
  • Experience with a variety of programming languages, with GoLang and Java experience a huge plus.
  • Experience testing a wide range of applications and services.
  • Strong operational skills with deployment and monitoring tools such as Jenkins, Datadog, and Splunk.
