<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>About the Group</div><div><br></div><div>The Search and Recommendations Group is a core component of the Canva user experience. They are responsible for providing the core platform that allows all of Canva's amazing templates, images, stickers, video, audio, etc, to be discovered inside and outside Canva. With that, they also own key in-product surfaces to allow users to discover content before and during design.</div><div><br></div><div>With over 100 million assets in our library (and rapidly growing), this group is key in ensuring that every user in every locale can find the content they need to create amazing designs. With so much content, surfacing the right ingredients to the right user, at the right time will be critical for the future success of Canva.</div><div><br></div><div><br></div><div>About the Product Design specialty</div><div><br></div><div><span style="font-size:11pt;">One of the principles of our design team is to ‘show the future’. As designers, we transport the rest of the company into a future we’re yet to build. A big part of the role of a product designer at Canva is to be a visionary—visualising and reinventing the future of design.</span></div><div><br></div><div><span style="font-size:11pt;">There is a magic that occurs where design and engineering collide – that has been the philosophy that has driven the success of a lot of our product experiences. We’re looking for someone who understands this magic and can work within the design team to help craft experiences that are detailed, polished, and push the boundaries of what’s technically possible, as well as inspire teams and leaders to invest in new ideas.</span></div><div><br></div><div><span style="font-size:11pt;">As a creative technologist, you’ll be part of the Product Design specialty, collaborating with all of our product designers to come up with interesting solutions to design problems, prototype new ideas, and figure out the details that go into a good design before they get fully built. You’ll also be an invaluable bridge between the design and engineering teams, helping the full vision of the design team to roll out to our millions of users.</span></div><div><br></div>
