Sydney – Full-time
We’re constantly working towards making Canva the best place to work, 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 all around the world. We celebrate uniqueness and whatever makes you, you and encourage everyone who wants to help us transform the way the world designs, to join us on this journey. We value all different types of experiences. If you don’t think you quite meet all of the qualifications, we’d still love to hear from you.
At Canva, our mission is to democratise design and empower creativity for anyone and everyone, on every platform. Inspired by a team of talented thinkers, an amazing culture and a remarkable growth trajectory – we’re out to change the world, one design at a time.
Since launch in August 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 60 million monthly active users across 190 different countries who have created more than 6 Billion designs. We are one of the world’s fastest-growing technology companies and we have only achieved about 1% of what we want to do.
About the Role:
How do you teach a computer to choose fonts and colors, change a layout, or make artistic recommendations? To solve problems such as these, engineering must be tightly interwoven with a knowledge of UX and graphic design. If you’re an engineer who enjoys thinking in multiple domains, this role is for you.
We are looking for strong programming ability, creative problem solving, user empathy, and exceptional learning aptitude. Our team includes engineers with professional design experience and data scientists, but we are open to anyone naturally suited to combining engineering, product, and design.
Knowledge in such areas as machine learning, color science, data analysis, and metaheuristics are valued but not necessary.
We make hiring decisions based on your experience, skills and passion. If you’re keen to apply and need reasonable adjustments or would like to note which pronouns you use at any point in the application or interview process, please let us know.
