Job Description

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.

We're building a new product offering in Canva's visual worksuite. This will support a whole new range of jobs-to-be-done, and level up many existing features. This is a big bet that will deliver major growth for Canva, and reframe our place in the market. We're diving deep to solve difficult technical problems and make complex tasks simple for our users. We're working right at the heart of Canva's editor - from our sync/saving stack to magical editing interactions.


About the Role/Specialty

Are you a passionate engineer eager to be part of a rapidly growing team? We are seeking talented individuals who are enthusiastic about creating products from the ground up and are excited about harnessing the power of AI to enhance user experiences. As a Frontend Software Engineer, you will possess a deep understanding of rendering, JavaScript execution, and various frontend frameworks. You thrive in navigating through uncertainties and are unafraid to take on challenging tasks to seamlessly integrate new products into an established large-scale environment.

What you’ll do (responsibilities)

  • Design, develop and deploy solutions and hands-on software development – working closely with leads, designers, and product managers to deliver features and experiments to our customers worldwide
  • Facilitate knowledge sharing and optimally advocate for engineering needs to non-technical team members within the group
  • Models initiative and ownership in achieving goals, improving processes and solutions
  • Finds opportunities for cross-team collaboration to work on new insights and improvements that help achieve our goals

What we're looking for

  • Our frontend stack consists of JavaScript, HTML, CSS, React, TypeScript, MobX, etc.. Experience in some of these would be valuable but is not required.
  • Firmly grounded computer science and engineering fundamentals including asynchronous programming, data structures, solution design, architecture, and design patterns.
  • Understanding of browser rendering pipeline, event handling, WebWorkers, WebGL/WebGPU would be a bonus, but not required.
  • Previous experience in working collaboratively with team members and communicating effectively.
  • Strong problem-solving skills, with the ability to break large projects down into smaller ones and deliver on them through others.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills.


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.

Here's a taste of what's on offer:

-Equity packages - we want our success to be yours too
Inclusive parental leave policy that supports all parents & carers
-An annual Vibe & Thrive allowance to support your wellbeing, social connection, office setup & more
-Flexible leave options that empower you to be a force for good, take time to recharge and supports you personally
