Company Overview

Autodesk, Inc., is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Customers across the manufacturing, architecture, building, construction, and media and entertainment industries—including the last 19 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects—use Autodesk software to design, visualize, and simulate their ideas before they're ever built or created. From blockbuster visual effects and buildings that create their own energy to electric cars and the batteries that power them, the work of our 3D software customers is everywhere you look.

Through our apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Android, we're also making design technology accessible to professional designers as well as amateur designers, homeowners, students, and casual creators. Whether it's a kid looking to build a new contraption, a seasoned pro sketching out a great new idea, or someone who just wants to amp up their creative output, we're taking technology originally built for movie studios, automakers, and architectural firms, and making it available to anyone who wants to create and share their ideas with the world.

Since its introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk continues to develop the broadest portfolio of state-of-the-art 3D software for global markets.


Innovative. Rewarding. Respectful. These are words we hear every day from employees about life at Autodesk. To empower our customers with technology that impacts the world, we start by empowering our employees to make a difference.

We encourage Autodesk employees to demonstrate their expertise, communicate honestly, and be a bit of a genius. Autodesk employees are free to share opinions and know that they will be respectfully listened to. And in exchange? Well, that’s where things get interesting.

Our vision for people at Autodesk is to unleash talent and potential to drive business success. With challenging work, global teams, hands-on training, and robust leadership programs, we make it easy for you to determine where you want to go and how to get there.

Creating a better world is core to what we do at Autodesk—better for the planet, better for people, and better for business. Enabling our customers to build a better world is job #1. We apply the same sustainability thinking to our own operations. We use our software to design our own offices, too; more than 20% of Autodesk facilities have obtained or are working toward sustainable design certification around the world, including LEED, SKA, and GreenMark.

Our employees are passionate about supporting the communities where we live and work and we offer paid volunteer time to do so. The bottom line is that we want everyone to join us in helping people imagine, design, and create a better world.
