Join the team redefining how the world experiences design.
Hey, g'day, mabuhay, kia ora,你好, hallo, vítejte!
Thanks for stopping by. We know job hunting can be a little time consuming and you're probably keen to find out what's on offer, so we'll get straight to the point.
Where and how you can work
Our flagship campus is in Sydney. We also have a campus in Melbourne and co-working spaces in Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. But you have choice in where and how you work. That means if you want to do your thing in the office (if you're near one), at home or a bit of both, it's up to you.
What you’d be doing in this role
As Canva scales change continues to be part of our DNA. But we like to think that's all part of the fun. So this will give you the flavour of the type of things you'll be working on when you start, but this will likely evolve.
At the moment, the role is focused on:

  • Owning the team’s technical direction by understanding the broader company strategy
  • Driving strategic planning and create goals for the team
  • Leading the team to implement the strategy
  • Building and maintain a balanced team culture
  • Coaching and leading the frontend engineers of the team, supporting their career growth journey.

You're probably a match if:

  • You have proven technical and people leadership experience
  • You're experienced in building and working in impactful and collaborative teams where everyone is able to share their best ideas and be their best selves
  • You have experience in crafting and building commercial web applications; comfortable contributing to design documents and performing thorough code reviews
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills; with the ability to work with a diverse range of Canvanauts from different backgrounds, with different expertise, and with different professional and personal needs
  • You're capable of leading by example - promoting Canva’s values, no-blame mentality, and engineering values.

What's in it for you?
Achieving our crazy big goals motivates us to work hard - and we do - but you'll experience lots of moments of magic, connectivity and fun woven throughout life at Canva, too. We also offer a stack of benefits to set you up for every success in and outside of work.

• Equity packages - we want our success to be yours too
