Product Management at Canva

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 the 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 Pixabay

Canva recently acquired one of the world’s biggest free stock content sites - Pixabay.  We have millions of visitors daily downloading our free content (images, videos and audio) that are supplied by our talented and generous global community. 

Pixabay operates as a standalone platform, and in the last year we’ve been building the engineering foundations and are now ready to take Pixabay to the next level in product and growth.

As Pixabay is a small and nimble team, we are looking for an all-rounder to define strategy, product direction, and scale the team and processes. You’d be someone that loves to get their hands dirty, whether that’s helping to test and help with QA, engage with the community or setting the strategy on how we’d 10x our users. We operate as a small startup and each day will be varied and interesting.
