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.
One of the challenges we face is sharing knowledge across the engineering organization. Recently, we set up internal sites and portals to host internal documentation for engineers. The content grows every week and includes explanations of the way we approach problems, our engineering practices, tribal knowledge learned over time, and style guides. The impact the technical writing specialty brings is already having a huge multiplier effect across engineering, but we know there's a long way to go.
Our mission is to equip our hundreds of engineers with the knowledge, best practices, and reference materials they need to do their best work and to foster a culture of great documentation to help us scale.
You'll lead and coach Technical Writers that work closely with Engineers to help develop the content and future vision of internal documentation at Canva. As this role is a split of leadership and tangible deliverables, we need someone with strong writing skills that is still happy to jump headfirst into the weeds.
This role is based in Sydney, open to remote applicants within Australia, and qualifies for interstate relocation for those who wish to work from Sydney HQ.
This role is open to remote applicants within Australia that do not need visa sponsorship. We will require occasional travel to Sydney.
We will not accept or review any CVs from external recruitment agencies.
We make hiring decisions based on your experience, skills and passion. If you’re keen to apply and need reasonable adjustments or would like to note which pronouns you use at any point in the application or interview process, please let us know.
