Learning Designer

Manila – Full-time

At Canva, we create tools that empower the world to design. Our mission is to make design simple for everyone. Inspired by a team of talented thinkers, an amazing culture and remarkable growth trajectory – we’re out to change the world, one design at a time.

Launched in August 2013, our platform combines a drag-and-drop design tool that is used by more than 25 million users across 180 different countries who have created more than 200 million designs (that’s eight designs created in its apps every second). And we’ve only achieved about 1% of what we’re capable of …

The mission of Canva’s People team is to build the most effective and engaged company in the world. 

Started in May 2018, Canva University has already launched a huge range of programs to support the skills people need to be effective - from specialty learning, onboarding, mentoring, coaching, leadership, and personal development.

As part of the team, you’ll be partnering closely with our stakeholders to solve our trickiest learning and development problems. We are a small but fast paced team with a true passion for learning. You can often find us putting our own teachings into practice by geeking out on the latest TED talks, sharing learnings with our super star peers over a coffee, learning about coding, and getting design lessons to bring the same Canva design aesthetic to our internal learners. We’re looking forward to growing the team with someone who can bring fresh, creative ideas so we can build the most innovative University around.

What you'll do...

  • Apply your learning and instructional design expertise to craft compelling, learner centric and scalable learning curriculum, courseware, content and tools across our existing and upcoming programs of work
  • Get creative with developing online learning content and resources, including audio recordings, filmings, blogs/articles, slide decks / documents (through the Google suite and the Canva app, until we implement an LMS) to complement our programs
