How our backend engineers work
Since launching in 2013, Canva has grown exponentially. Fortunately, our microservices architecture was built to scale from day one. This allows our engineers to focus on building new services, features, and functionality to support the Canva platform. Our roadmap for ambitious new products and services just keeps growing, so there’s plenty of opportunities to have an impact and grow as an engineer.
Our backend engineers sit in cross functional product teams, with every team responsible for their own services and architecture. You, as an engineer, will get great insight into the product and a seat at the table with respect to how it’s built. Thanks to the support of our infrastructure team, you’ll also be provided with the tools you need to get things done quickly.
Up until recently we’ve been hiring high calibre generalist backend engineers, but now we’re also looking for specialists in areas from machine learning to search to data engineering.
