Canva’s Commitment and Mission
At Canva, we celebrate diversity. We deeply believe that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key to building the best product, team and company. We look for many different skills and abilities, as well as how you can enhance Canva and our culture. So, even if you don’t think you quite meet all of the skills listed or tick all the boxes, we’d still love to hear from you!
Our mission at Canva is to empower the world to design and since launching in 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 86 million monthly active users across 190 different countries and a team of over 3,000 people… and the best bit is that we’ve only achieved 1% of what we know we’re capable of.
Join us and design your future.
About the Product Design team
One of the principles of our design specialty is to ‘show the future’. As designers, we transport the rest of the company into a future we’re yet to build. A big part of the role of a product designer at Canva is to be a visionary – by visualising and reinventing the future of design for our users.
Product designers at Canva take the dream and make it something everyone can relate to and rally behind. We start from the very early stages: finding the right problem to tackle, exploring ideas for how to solve it and then refining it into a coherent solution.
Our product designers conduct research, brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and collaborating with our engineers to ship phenomenal products. We are empathetic user advocates and respect our users’ opinions through interviews, usability testing, data analysis, wireframing, flowcharting, and journey mapping to show the different stages customers go through as they come into contact with Canva.
About the Design Automation team
The Design Automation team is on a mission to make Canva the fastest and easiest design tool in the world! We are part of a larger group, tasked with looking after the overall editing experience on every device.
We’re motivated to create ‘magical’ experiences for users and to do this well we need to deeply understand who we’re designing for. As such, data science and user research is a huge part of our team’s focus.
Much of our work is exploratory and forward-thinking – and our focus is not limited to a specific set of features or a particular product area. Our insights and discoveries often lead us to pursue projects that support other teams and groups. Curiosity, communication and collaboration are therefore critical to our team’s success.
We are looking for someone who can solve complex problems with a systematic approach in a fast-paced environment. Working within a cross-functional team you’ll be collaborating to deliver new products that will have a large-scale impact on Canva and end-users.
