Hello, 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 office is in Sydney, Australia, but we've made our way from down under, to a campus in Austin, Texas which is now home to our US operations. For this role, we're looking for candidates based in Austin, though you have flexibility to be hybrid from this location.

About the role

Canva is seeking a Sales Security Analyst to provide support to Canva’s enterprise sales team. In this high visibility role, you will be responsible for managing customers’ security needs during the sales process. You will create customer-facing documentation to build trust, maintain process for intake of customer security assessments, and complete customer security assessments in a timely manner. Reporting to the Sales Security & Trust Lead, this role will play a crucial part in building customer trust and ensuring adherence to regulatory and customer requirements.

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.

  • Implement processes to intake customer security questionnaires and complete them accurately and promptly.
  • Partner closely with various internal teams and subject matter experts to maintain an accurate knowledge base of Canva's security information to efficiently and effectively address customer inquiries.
  • Act as a point of contact for all customer audit requests and drive customer audits.
  • Maintain metrics and reporting to demonstrate the impact of the Sales Security & Trust team.

You're probably a match if

  • 3+ years of working experience within Security GRC or a similar security role supporting sales.
  • Understanding of common certification and attestation requirements such as PCI DSS, ISO 27001, SOC1, SOC2, etc.
  • Understanding of privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA.
  • Understanding of cloud controls and environments (AWS).
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills with the ability to translate complex technical concepts into business language.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
