At Canva our mission is to make beautiful design possible for everyone by transforming the way corporations, small businesses, nonprofits, and educators work all over the world. Through this democratisation of design, we aim to have a significant positive impact on society.

One way we are working towards that goal is by creating communities on social media to support our users in all sorts of ways. We create and share content that will educate/inspire/entertain our audience on a daily basis. A great deal of that content is video content.

To keep up with this constant flow of video content, we are looking for a video editor that understands social media formats and requirements but also who can work fast and independently.

  • Create both 16:9 and 9:16 (vertical) videos
