We know job hunting can be a little time consuming and you're probably keen to find out what's on offer, so we'll get straight to the point.</div> <div> <br> <div> <br> <div> <b style="font-size:32px;">Where and how you can work</b> </div> <div> <br> <div>Our flagship campus is in Sydney. We also have a campus in Melbourne and co-working spaces in Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. But you have choice in where and how you work. That means if you want to do your thing in the office (if you're near one), at home or a bit of both, it's up to you.</div> <div> <br> <div> <br> <div> <b style="font-size:32px;">What you’d be doing in this role</b> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:14.6667px;">As Canva scales change continues to be part of our DNA. But we like to think that's all part of the fun. So this will give you the flavour of the type of things you'll be working on when you start, but this will likely evolve. </span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:14.6667px;">At the moment, this role is focused on:</span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <b>The Role and the Team</b> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:11pt;">Performance is important for us in Canva. We want to be the fastest graphical design tool in the world. The Performance team is set to achieve this mission. We are building a performance culture in Canva and to do that, we are looking for engineers with an interest in performance, how to debug and measure, and changing the way we work to allow fast performance by default. </span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:11pt;">We'd love to hear from you if you fit one or more of these:</span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:11pt;">You are a fan of solving performance issues and know how to debug and propose solutions ranging from a practical quick fix to a standardised change to roll out across the company. You understand the reasons behind why every performance metrics are different and how it relates to the user experience. You know how to measure performance from synthetic measurements to collecting real user performance metrics. </span>You <span style="font-size:11pt;">have experience in creating a system for automated performance testing and know how to effectively fit this into a developer’s workflow.</span> </div> <div> <br> <div>You <span style="font-size:11pt;">will be exploring new ways to improve our engineering practices. Your work would be getting more useful insights to show how performance issues affect us, finding engineering best practices and communicating how to use it across the company, building tools to make sure the code we write are up to our performance standards, and being the performance evangelist in the company alongside the rest of the team.</span> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div>
