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.

As our new Staff Frontend Engineer you will work on bringing the bleeding edge of AI technology to our core editing experience. As the frontend leader in the team you will lead the frontend technology direction of our roadmap in collaboration with other engineers both inside and outside the team.

  • Design, develop and deploy solutions to challenging Design AI problems – working closely with ML engineers, backend engineers, frontend engineers, designers, and product managers to deliver features and experiments to our users
  • Collaborate and influence the direction of adjacent teams across Canva to deliver on the teams goals
  • Gain deep experience and understanding of how Canva’s core editor works
  • Primarily work in the frontend with Typescript, but may need to work with other languages and environments
  • Facilitate knowledge sharing and optimally advocate for engineering needs to non-technical team members within the organisation
  • You will drive the technical architecture for large, cross-team, and cross-group initiatives and projects from ideation to completion, with autonomy and independence of decision making.
  • Find opportunities for cross-team collaboration to work on new insights and improvements that help achieve our goals

You're probably a match if

  • You are experienced in technical leadership in highly complex and ambiguous domains
  • Proven track record in delivering product engineering goals in the AI/ML space
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Experience or interest in Machine Learning and/or Design. This team works at the intersection of engineering, natural language, and design so a genuine desire or proven experience in this space is essential

About the team

Suggestions AI is essential in fulfilling Canva's mission to 'empower the world to design' by using AI to automate design decisions for our users, irrespective of their design skill level. By making the editor 'smarter' through AI, you will have a huge impact in driving user growth and retention by taking our product to the next level.

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
