Adobe LCVM Opportunity


I am part of the Talent Acquisition team at Adobe and I am working on a critical role right now for our LCVM Group within Adobe’s Flash organization. LLVM experience is required, and I have noticed quickly how hard it is to find. I thought I would e mail this group to see if you know of anyone who might be interested in having an opportunistic conversation, or wouldn’t mind sharing any helpful tips on where or how to find this person!

Here is the job description:

Position Summary
