Canva’s Commitment and Mission

At Canva, we celebrate diversity. We deeply believe that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key to building the best product, team and company. We look for many different skills and abilities, as well as how you can enhance Canva and our culture. So, even if you don’t think you quite meet all of the skills listed or tick all the boxes, we’d still love to hear from you! 

Our mission at Canva is to empower the world to design and since launching in 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 100+ million monthly active users across 190 different countries and a team of over 3,000 people… and the best bit is that we’ve only achieved 1% of what we know we’re capable of. 

Join us and design your future.

Your Role:
On day one, you’ll start building a deep understanding of the content discoverability experience of international users. Over the next few weeks and months, you’ll roadmap major and minor improvements to the experience and build a rapport with the cross-functional teams who own content, search, and internationalisation. 

After 6 months you will have guided the project from planning, through execution, and into impact analysis. You will have developed relationships with the relevant stakeholders and communicated the business case widely and thoughtfully. 

In a year’s time you’ll be contributing to the team’s future vision and working on the next major localisation project. 

About You:
You love taking things from chaos to clarity — you’re a natural at understanding ambiguous, complex problems and communicating them simply to others. You also have the drive to see things through despite changes and setbacks. You’re equally comfortable discussing detail with engineers and ideas with product managers and designers. You’re great with tech (Atlassian project management tools, basic web development) and you write a mean doc. 

You understand the global user experience and how to improve it, ideally from experience working in a localisation/internationalisation environment within a SaaS company. Speaking multiple languages is a huge bonus, as is vendor-side experience with localisation. 

 

What we’re looking for:

 

  • A solid understanding of product growth
  • Expertise with localisation tools and processes
  • Proficiency with SQL/data analysis
  • Tertiary education in linguistics or localisation
  •
