<div> <b style="font-size:32px;">Join the team redefining how the world experiences design.</b> </div><div> <br> <div>Hey, g'day, mabuhay, kia ora,你好, hallo, vítejte!</div> <div> <br> <div>Thanks for stopping by. 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> <span style="font-size:32px;">Where and how you can work</span> </b> </div> <div>Our flagship campus is in Sydney, Australia but in Aotearoa, we have a hub in Auckland that we call home to our local operations. And with that, you have choice in how and where you work. That means if you want to do your thing at our Auckland hub (if you're nearby) or 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> <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> <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> <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> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div>
