Marketing Lead (Flourish)


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.

Flourish is the world’s leading data storytelling platform. It enables anyone to create beautiful graphics and interactive stories without coding. Since its launch in 2018, more than 750,000 registered users have produced around 10 million graphics, which have racked up more than 20 billion views. Our customers range from leading newsrooms and corporations to NGOs, universities and government departments all over the world. Flourish was recently acquired by Canva to empower the world to tell stories with data. Our team, mostly based in London, will continue growing Flourish as a separate product while also adding more data storytelling features natively in Canva. We’re looking for a Marketing Lead to join our team to play a key role in taking our product to even greater audiences, reporting to the CEO.


The role:


  • Drive Flourish’s key growth metrics. Working closely with the product and commercial teams, you will oversee core growth KPIs and ensure we are optimizing for user growth, revenue and profitability.
  • Shape our content strategy. The Flourish marketing and content team’s purpose is to inspire users to create data stories and interactive content. You will oversee the team and its strategy, to ensure our content contributes to our strategic goals.
  • Consolidate our reporting systems. As someone who lives and breathes data and metrics, you will work with our engineering team to ensure that our analytics systems are giving you what you need.
  • Partnerships and events. To increase brand awareness and engage with our users, you’ll oversee creative partnerships and events with customers, users and the wider community.
  • Collaborate with marketing teams across Canva. Canva’s International Marketing group is a diverse and distributed team of marketers who drive user growth, brand awareness, and affinity in 30 priority markets. You’ll partner closely with various teams to support them in achieving their growth objectives and learning from their best practices.
