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, 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.
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.

At the moment, this role is focused on:

  • You will Coach engineers by providing regular, practical feedback and collaboratively help them reach their personal growth goals
  • You will set clear goals for the team and rally the team to execution on those goals
  • You will ensure that there is a healthy environment for collaboration and the engineering culture within the team is open, pragmatic, and encouraging
  • You will own the team’s development methodology and rituals such as sprint planning, stand-ups, retrospectives
  • You will build relationships with mobile payment service providers as they are essential to your team’s success
  • You will lead the team’s technical strategy and roadmap
  • You will write and review design documents, break projects down into milestones, and be responsible for project delivery

You're probably a match if

  • You are an individual who is able to balance technical, people and delivery leadership to ensure an impactful team.
  • You should foster an inclusive culture that allows different specialties (Product Managers, Designers, Finance QA, Data Analysts) to contribute to the team success.
  • Experience and expertise is required in relational databases, object oriented language such as Java, APIs, AWS hosting and distributed systems.
  • Knowledge in mobile payments processing - app store payments would be highly beneficial.
  • Experience in project delivery which will enable you to guide the team to success.
  • Previous experience of running a hard-working team and becomes comfortable with delegation and mentor of engineers.
