Sydney – Full-time
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.
About our Group
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.
We are trusted business partners that are able to take goals of the company and translate them into financial outcomes to help the company achieve its growth targets.
This is a foundational role within a new real estate subspecialty that sits within the Finance and Legal Group, but works close with our Vibe team (responsible for the overall feel and layout of our spaces and the facilities within). This role will have the opportunity to shape this sub-speciality at Canva.
About the role
Canva is scaling our global presence rapidly to attract the best talent from around the world. Our facilities and overall Vibe are motivators for talent to join our growing organisation as we look to expand from 2,000 employees to 10,000+ employees in the next 4 years.
To support our expansion we are looking for a Global Real Estate Lead. The Global Real Estate Lead will be responsible for global governance of
Canva’s real estate strategic plans and projects. You will be responsible for long term real estate strategy, planning and execution. You will have a strong understanding of our business strategy, a deep understanding of the Australian Real Estate market and be able to translate this into a long term real estate strategy for Canva.
Reporting to the CFO and Finance leadership team, you will be responsible for long term real estate master planning by leading Canva’s real estate business strategy and financial planning.
You will partner cross-functionally with other teams across Finance, Legal and Vibe to develop business cases supported by financial analysis, including different real estate scenarios exploring global opportunities and talent trends, real estate scenarios and financial analyses, that support the implementation of a real estate strategy in an ever growing and changing portfolio.
One of our core values at Canva, “Being a force for good” means we are actively working towards a world that isn't just good for a small few, but one that’s good 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. To achieve this, we need to constantly work towards making Canva the best place to work, for everyone.
