About Us
At Canva, our mission is to democratise design and empower creativity for anyone and everyone, on every platform. Inspired by a team of talented thinkers, an amazing culture and a remarkable growth trajectory – we’re out to change the world, one design at a time.

Product Management @ Canva 
The mission of Product Managers at Canva is to create the most accessible design tool for every person in the world. We believe that we can improve the world by empowering everyone to design and communicate visually. As a Product Manager at Canva you help set this vision, define what that future looks like, and build the products and features that get us there.
Product Managers collaborate with Canva’s founders to set the strategic direction, scope, and success metrics for product initiatives. We work across teams of designers, software engineers, marketers and analysts to ensure we’re delivering an exceptional experience to all our users. We are responsible for implementing and collaborating on product strategy, road mapping, and prioritisation as our product grows. 
It’s our responsibility to see products through their entire lifecycle—from concept through to validation, build, post-launch analytics and iterations.

About the group and team
The Engagement Group is one of three groups which make up Marketing & Engagement (M&E) – one of the biggest areas at Canva. Playing a critical role in Canva’s mission to empower the world to design. Composed of several product teams, the Group’s impact spans our entire funnel (signup & login, homepage, onboarding, publish, referral). The Group’s aim is to deliver value to our users through the best user experience to boost engagement and retention, ultimately growing our active user base. 
The Engagement Group does everything from building exciting new products and features to running tonnes of experiments and conducting research and analysis to grow Canva in new markets and categories
