About the team
The Content & Discovery group is responsible for sourcing all the content in Canva and then making it discoverable both inside and outside of the product.
The content we source include templates, images, video, audio, icons, stickers, etc. We do this via creating them in house, licensing/purchasing them or via our creator program which allows anyone to upload content to Canva and earn royalties.
We surface the content in Canva via search and recommendations. We surface content outside of Canva via SEO by making the content in Canva easily found in Google, as that's where a lot of people's design journey start.
