Product Management @ Canva 

The mission of Product Managers at Canva is to create the most accessible design tool for every person in the world. We believe that we can improve the world by empowering everyone to design and communicate visually. As a Product Manager at Canva you help set this vision, define what that future looks like, and build the products and features that get us there.

Product Managers collaborate with Canva’s founders to set the strategic direction, scope, and success metrics for product initiatives. We work across teams of designers, software engineers, marketers and analysts to ensure we're delivering an exceptional experience to all our users. We are responsible for implementing and collaborating on product strategy, road mapping, and prioritisation as our product grows. 

It’s our responsibility to see products through their entire lifecycle—from concept through to validation, build, post-launch analytics and iterations.


About Team, Education & Enterprise

The teams, education & enterprise group is building the design product that empowers every boardroom, classroom and meeting room to design. 

Through doing this we are also building an Enterprise business which already has 5 Fortune 100 customers onboard, a product dedicated to improving learning through design and making Canva the tool for collaborating on designs. 

We are early on in our Enterprise and Education journeys and there is a whole lot more to do to achieve our vision and so we are looking for a product manager to join us at this early stage and help propel us towards our vision.
