About the Technical Program Managers
As a Technical Program Manager (TPM), it is your mission to work closely with senior managers and development teams to build a sustainable culture of delivery. You will lead complex, multi-disciplinary programs and be equally comfortable working with leadership to set strategic goals and clarify priorities, as you are working with teams to communicate program status, escalate issues and manage dependencies as you are discussing technical trade-offs with an engineer.
About the Engineering Specialty
Engineering is at the heart of Canva — from the simple, straightforward, and creative UI, to the performant, computer science challenges of scaling and running a continuous engineering environment.
The Canva code base was built to scale from day one, yet this is a constant challenge. With adherence to fundamentals and first principles, the team strives to use the most appropriate processes and tools for the tasks at hand, aiming to strike that carefully measured balance between getting things done and long-term maintainability of the domain model, code base and supporting infrastructure.
We are looking for a TPM to join our team to help drive the delivery of our Scale Engineering roadmap, to support our CTO with initiatives reaching across our team and technology stack and to co-ordinate engineering foundational teams (e.g. Frontend, Backend, Machine Learning, Infrastructure, Data, etc).
This is an exciting, hands-on role. You’ll ensure we deliver on solving our hardest engineering scale challenges and you’ll have a massive impact on the future of our engineering culture and technology environment (For a deeper look into Canva's engineering culture, check out our Canva Engineering Blog, sharing insights on how we get things done).
Being a Force for good.
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.
