Join the team redefining how the world experiences design.
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.
At the moment, this role will be focused on:

  • Leading the growth strategy vision, setting our overarching approach that the team can then ladder up to with each of their initiatives.
  • Guiding the team as they map out growth strategy initiatives and experiments for the relevant motion, working with Product Growth & Product Marketing to pull out key insights.
  • Defining and evolving a standardised growth experiment framework across relevant marketing channels.
  • Setting up the right infrastructure, tooling and playbooks to empower the team to deliver experiments at scale.
  • Working closely with the data team to continue evolving our attribution model from a number of influenced seats to a new model showing incrementally.
  • Leading a team of growth strategists, ensuring they have a clear team vision to rally behind and keeping them connected through regular comms and cadences.
  • Directly coaching a number of senior coachees, guiding them strategically and investing in their growth and development.

You're probably a match if

  • You have extensive experience in growth strategy or growth marketing roles, particularly for B2B audiences and SaaS products (bonus if you've worked on projects for Education audiences as well).
  • You have an excellent understanding of different marketing channels (including Performance Marketing, Lifecycle, Landing Pages, SEO, Sales Enablement and Educational Content), what their role is and available formats to produce.
  • You are passionate about using data to inform and improve programs of work
  • You have experience leading teams of 10+ people, including senior team members who have their own direct reporting lines.
  • You are confident building strong relationships with a range of senior stakeholders across teams.
