<div><b style="font-size:14pt;">Canva’s Commitment and Mission</b></div><div><br></div><div><span style="font-size:11pt;">At Canva, we celebrate diversity. We deeply believe that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key to building the best product, team and company. We look for many different skills and abilities, as well as how you can enhance Canva and our culture. So, even if you don’t think you quite meet all of the skills listed or tick all the boxes, we’d still love to hear from you! </span></div><div><br></div><div><span style="font-size:14.6667px;">Our mission at Canva is to empower the world to design and since launching in 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 110+ million monthly active users across 190 different countries and a team of over 3,400 people… and the best bit is that we’ve only achieved 1% of what we know we’re capable of. </span></div><div><br></div><div><span style="font-size:11pt;">Join us and design your future. </span></div><div><br></div><div><span style="font-size:11pt;">Software engineering is the core of who we are at Canva. The Canva code base was built to scale from day one. This has allowed for a unique environment where engineers spend most of their time optimizing performance and releasing new features rather than fixing legacy code. With adherence to fundamentals and first principles, the team strives to use the most appropriate tools for the tasks at hand, aiming to strike that carefully measured balance between getting things done and the long-term maintainability of the code base and supporting infrastructure.</span></div><div><br></div><div><span style="font-size:11pt;">We promote a warm and collaborative work environment where engineers set big goals and are given the tools and support to achieve them. We also invite our engineers to contribute to the direction their peers are taking with proactive pair-ups for peer-reviewing of code as well as regular engineering forums for opinions and ideas to be heard. These practices ensure that knowledge is shared and releases are quick and efficient. </span></div><div><br></div><div> <span style="font-size:11pt;">Finally - you're probably curious about our technology stack. At a high level, Canva's backend is powered by a set of services (some micro, some not-so-micro) built primarily in Java, hosted on Linux, sitting on AWS. We also sprinkle in some powerful open-source libraries and tools (have a look at </span><a href="https://twitter.github.io/finagle/" style="font-size:11pt;" class="postings-link">finagle</a><span style="font-size:11pt;">), as well as bespoke components to power some of the magic.</span> </div>
