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.

The Sales & Success function is responsible for driving revenue from F500, Strategic, Enterprise, Mid-Market and SMB companies to increase Canva’s B2B revenue and penetration, applying a product led approach. The Sales Strategy & Operations function sits within Sales & Success, and supports Sales & Success in driving B2B revenue in a scalable and sustainable way, through reporting and analytics, incentive design, process, tooling and enablement across onboarding and continuous learning and development.

  • You'll evaluate our current enablement and content tooling and partner with the Sales systems team to iterate and improve. You will continue to explore vendor relationships as needed for tooling and trainings to improve productivity
  • You will lead change management around large initiatives that impact Sales & Success (eg. incentive changes, quota changes, planning for new fiscal year etc). You will own our annual Sales Kick Off programming as and when the need arises
