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, this role is focused on:

  • Operational Support: Support various operational aspects, including annual contractor rate reviews, milestone tracking, data team sprint planning, and reporting for the SEO group. Assist in sprint planning across all SEO Group deliveries and successful collaborations with other groups.
  • Tool Management: Works with the Tech SEO, Engineering and Infrastructure teams to ensure SEO tool access and required licensing levels are managed as required.
  • Contract Management: Support in the contractor rate review, renewal and submission of SEO Group contracts for contractors and agencies
  • Team Growth: Work closely with leadership to forecast team capacity, define roles, responsibilities, and contribute to hiring and onboarding. Assess contractor performance and areas for improvement.
  • Cross-Functional Collaboration: Collaborate with various functions within Canva, such as localisation, engineering, product, and QA, to guide the SEO team in delivering extraordinary work with a global outlook.

You're probably a match if you can demonstrate:

  • Operational Support Expertise: Consistent track record in providing operational support within a service-oriented role, with the capability to convey the position and plan effectively to meet client or team needs.
  • Initiative and Organisation: Demonstrated initiative and sound organisational skills, including the ability to work independently and as part of a team, managing multiple responsibilities efficiently.
  • Cross-Functional Collaboration: Experience working across different functions and the ability to coordinate resources and inputs from various teams to meet organisational goals.
  • Analytical Problem-Solving: Proficiency in analysing complex problems and proposing effective solutions while adapting to changing circumstances.
  • Interpersonal Skills: Exceptional interpersonal skills to establish trust and maintain relationships with various partners, ensuring seamless collaboration and communication in a dynamic work environment.
