Hey, g'day, mabuhay, kia ora,你好, hallo, vítejte!
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.
Where and how you can work
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.
What you’d be doing in this role
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.
About the team:
The Team Growth group is on a mission to show every team the value of teaming up on Canva. We are committed to driving impact on key metrics for acquisition, activation, retention, expansion and monetisation of teams on Canva. Driving these key pillars contribute directly towards our company goals.

  • Communicate effectively with stakeholders across Canva when developing a solution; seek and incorporate diverse perspectives to address complex issues
  • Facilitate knowledge sharing and effectively advocate for engineering needs to non-technical stakeholders within the group
  • Models initiative and ownership in achieving goals, improving processes and solutions
  • Work closely with Machine Learning engineers to build advanced personalisation experiments that empower our users to get the most out of Canva

  • Firmly grounded computer science and engineering fundamentals including concurrency, multithreading, data structures, solution design, architecture, and design patterns
  • Working collaboratively with team members and communicating effectively
