Given that this is a new specialty at Canva you will also be helping pioneer the ways in which Product Growth Managers work and interact with the rest of the business.

About you:

You have a growth mindset and value detail as much as the big picture. You thrive in a collaborative fast-paced environment, working together to figure out the best experience for the user and how to impact the business. Continually learning and adapting, you strive to grow yourself and those around you. Living and breathing all things growth, you make data-informed, strategic decisions and deliver on them to lead your team to great results. You thrive being autonomous and willing to challenge the status quo to drive business growth.

  • Help own the goal setting process for your product area by helping define the key metrics, setting seasonal targets and prioritising the work necessary to achieve them

What you'll do:

  • Identify the highest impact growth opportunity for your product area, size the opportunity and build a business case for it.

  • You have experience working on  product growth challenges and driving data driven growth

  • You thrive on strategic thinking and collaborating with cross functional stakeholders
