#AutodeskLife

Autodesk makes software for people who make things. If you’ve ever driven a high-performance car, admired a towering skyscraper, used a smartphone, or watched a great film, chances are you’ve experienced what millions of Autodesk customers are doing with our software. Autodesk gives you the power to make anything.

Over 100 million people use Autodesk software like AutoCAD, Revit, Maya, 3ds Max, Fusion 360, SketchBook, and more to unlock their creativity and solve important design, business and environmental challenges. Our software runs on both personal computers and mobile devices and taps the infinite computing power of the cloud to help teams around the world collaborate, design, simulate and fabricate their ideas in 3D.

Autodesk is consistently named a Great Place to Work®, globally. We provide exceptional compensation/benefit packages and we’d love for you to join us. We’re proud to be an equal opportunity employer and we consider all qualified applicants without regard to race, gender, disability, veteran status or other protected category. To see our culture in action, check out #AutodeskLife.

We are headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area and have more than 9000 employees worldwide.

Because each of us have different needs and lifestyles, Autodesk offers a variety of benefits. A rewarding career and personal life depend in part on good health and peace of mind. Autodesk offers competitive compensation programs, high-quality health insurance plans, survivor and income protection, flexible spending accounts and a 401(k) plan with company match as part of our Total Rewards program.

In addition to a challenging and satisfying career, we need time to relax with friends and family, as well as flexibility and support for personal needs. In the US, we have a variety of paid time off programs, including ones to help you relax like vacation, sabbatical, and holidays (including the week of rest in December), and ones to help support you, like sick, parental and disability.

Sometimes it’s the little things that can make a difference, so we also offer other perks such as recognition and wellness reimbursement programs, paid volunteer time and donation matching, ESPP, adoption assistance, and other miscellaneous programs to help make life a little brighter.
