Product Management @ Canva
The mission of Product Managers at Canva is to create the most accessible design tool for every person in the world. We believe that we can improve the world by empowering everyone to design and communicate visually. As a Product Manager at Canva you help set this vision, define what that future looks like, and build the products and features that get us there.
Product Managers collaborate with Canva’s founders to set the strategic direction, scope, and success metrics for product initiatives. We work across teams of designers, software engineers, marketers and analysts to ensure we're delivering an exceptional experience to all our users. We are responsible for implementing and collaborating on product strategy, road mapping, and prioritisation as our product grows. It’s our responsibility to see products through their entire lifecycle—from concept through to validation, build, post-launch analytics and iterations.
You are the Voice of the Canva Customer
The User Voice Groups mission is to enable and empower our customers to use and love Canva. That means helping them out when they have a problem and proactively making them more successful using our products and services. Whether they’re using the Canva online self help services such as the Assistant and Help Centre, or whether they need personalised help from the Customer Happiness Team, the User Voice team strives to provide world class support.
As we continue to grow, we need to continue to serve our customers with the highest level of support possible, while also improving how we do it by getting more efficient and more sophisticated along the way. User Voice acts as the eyes and ears of the business, ensuring that we put the customer at the centre of everything we do. We believe that customer data – in all of its forms – can be our strategic advantage if leveraged in the right way. We’re looking to add serious fire-power behind this effort to collect customer data, derive insights, and disseminate it to the right teams so we fix pain points and continually make the user experience better.
