Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane – Full-time
Since Canva’s launch in August 2013 we have grown exponentially. We now support over 40 million monthly active users in 190 countries, and have helped create more than 2 billion designs.
We are one of the world’s fastest-growing technology companies, and we think we are only 1% of the way to achieving our goal – which is super exciting because there is so much more to do!
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 driven 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 area of the product. 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!
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—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 carry out research, brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and collaboration with our engineers to ship great products. We are empathetic user advocates and respect our users’ opinions through interviews, usability testing, and data analysis, as well as wireframing, flowcharting, and journey mapping to show the different stages that customers go through as they come into contact with Canva.
Canva is currently one of Australia’s hottest technology startups and has been ranked Australia’s #1 place to work.
We mean it when we say we want to create a workplace that you love coming to. Our culture is unlike anywhere else and our offices are designed with workspaces for every mood, to help you do great work. At Canva you can be part of a company that is growing rapidly, building a product that users really love.

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.
