Organizations increasingly need more experts as much as they need managers. Adobe is focusing on building principal scientists who can also serve as technical role models for their young engineers. Adobe Fellows are employees in the R&D organization who have distinguished themselves in the engineering field. These employees are recognized nationally by their industry colleagues and academic peers as experts and innovators in their areas of acknowledged technical leadership. Adobe Fellows are part of a very select, highly regarded, visible and impactful group within Adobe. This is a top non-management engineering position an employee can achieve within the company. For employees to be considered for the Fellow job designation, they must have demonstrated technical expertise including published works, speaking engagements, patents, and copyrights.
