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 office is in Sydney, Australia, but we’ve made our way from down under, to hubs in Austin and San Francisco, which are now home to our US operations. So whether you’re in Texas or California, you have choice in where and how you work in each of those states. 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.
At the moment, this role is focused on:
About the Design Experience Supergroup
The Design Experience supergroup’s mission is to build powerful, yet simple tools that empower anyone to design anything
You will be responsible for Canva’s video, presentations, and docs experiences, among others. This will involve simplifying the complexities that come with these experiences, and reimagining how traditional video, presentation and doc editing works.
With millions of users using Canva every day, this is an opportunity to redefine visual and animated communication and have a global impact on the way people create content.
Working across several high-impact groups and teams, you will quickly become exposed to and have the opportunity to create impact to all moving parts of Canva, working in collaboration with individuals across multiple groups.
About the Content Design Specialty
Content Design is on a mission to help our users fulfill their goals with clarity and joy.
We’re looking to achieve this by building an amazing team with a culture of clear and crisp writing. Our focus is on systems, not just sentences. We create and improve flows, not just the words. We seek to have deep impact on key areas, not just shallow impact everywhere.
We’re a small and growing part of our Design specialty. Canva sees content as a crucial part of its ongoing success – and we’re really focused on improving our content experience. We have a fun, human voice that we want to do a better job of getting across to our users, instead of, you know, “generic UX writing” voice.
We’re passionate about working together to create the future of Content Design at Canva; it’s not a top-down approach. Your opinion matters! You’ll also get lots of support from the diverse content team across the business. As soon as you arrive, we’ll be saying “Thank goodness you’re here!”
The content design specialty collaborates closely with Product Managers, Designers, Engineers and Design Researchers to identify solutions that prioritize our users’ needs.
About the role
Location: You must be based in Australia or New Zealand for this role. If relocation is necessary, we will include it in the hiring process and provide our support.
Content Design: This is an individual contributor role. You’ll use your writing skills, User Experience principles and knowledge of technical requirements of front-end development to develop product copy that helps Canva users to collaborate without the headaches. You’ll also work with the rest of the Content Design team to solve problems we’re all facing, so we can continue to build a robust, thriving specialty.
Results: You’ll help design and develop the Canva website and applications from a content-first perspective, where your content design decisions move the metrics that matter
Collaboration: You’ll bring design, PMs, engineers and researchers together to find the best solutions for our users and to mitigate web-related issues by solving problems with language
