We’re constantly working towards making Canva the best place to work, for everyone. We believe deeply that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key for building the best product for our equally diverse community all around the world. We celebrate uniqueness and whatever makes you, you and encourage everyone who wants to help us transform the way the world designs, to join us on this journey. We value all different types of experiences. If you don’t think you quite meet all of the qualifications, we’d still love to hear from you.
At Canva, our mission is to democratise design and empower creativity for anyone and everyone, on every platform. Inspired by a team of talented thinkers, an amazing culture and a remarkable growth trajectory – we’re out to change the world, one design at a time.
Since launch in August 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 60 million monthly active users across 190 different countries who have created more than 6 Billion designs. We are one of the world’s fastest-growing technology companies and we have only achieved about 1% of what we want to do.
The Finance and Legal Group’s mission is to protect and serve Canva and its stakeholders. That means we empower every team within the company to work quickly and autonomously, while at the same time maintaining compliance in all areas.
As a fast growing group, we’ve only scratched the surface of the insights we can provide, and our potential to influence Canva’s strategic decisions.
The vision is for Canva to be recognised and commended by its peers and stakeholders as having a world-class Finance and Legal team.
What does our General Ledger and Accounting team do:
The General Ledger and Accounting function of the FinOps team plays a key role in ensuring the integrity and timeliness, accuracy and completeness of financial information. Our mission is to maintain the most accurate data set of information and support the wider Finance team with general ledger accounting, queries and reporting.
We currently have team members in Sydney and Manila, and are looking to continue scaling the team! With expanding operations across the world in multiple jurisdictions, we are looking for a Financial Accountant who can build and expand on our accounting close processes, as well as assist in the preparation of monthly financial reporting, and internal scaling of financial processes.
This is a critical role that will work closely with other finance teams, providing guidance and support to the Corporate Accounting and Shared Services team as well as supporting reporting requirements with the Tax and Commercial Accounting teams, and excellent development opportunity for an ambitious accountant looking to take on new and exciting challenges!

We believe deeply that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key for building the best product for our equally diverse community. To achieve this, we need to constantly work towards making Canva the best place to work, for everyone.
