At Canva, we create tools that empower the world to design. 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 remarkable growth trajectory – we’re out to change the world, one design at a time.
Since launch in August 2013 we have grown exponentially, amassing over 40 million active users across 190 different countries who have created more than 2 Billion designs. We are one of the world’s fastest-growing technology companies and we have only achieved about 1% of what we are capable of!
Product Design at Canva
One of the principles of our design team is to ‘show the future’. As designers we transport the rest of the company into a future we’re yet to build. A big part of the role of a product designer at Canva is to be a visionary—visualising and reinventing the future of design.
Product designers at Canva take the dream and make it something everyone can relate to and rally behind. We start from the very early stages: finding the right problem to tackle, exploring ideas for how to solve it and then refining it into a coherent solution. Our product designers carry out research, brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and collaboration with our engineers to ship great products. We are empathetic user advocates and respect our users’ opinions through interviews, usability testing, and data analysis, as well as wireframing, flowcharting, and journey mapping to show the different stages that customers go through as they come into contact with Canva.
About the group/team
The Engagement group at Canva is focused on building the world’s most engaging design tool. We strive to inspire users and create memorable experiences from their first touchpoint with Canva to their 100th design and beyond.
The product teams within the Engagement group live and breathe our users, and we’re always on the lookout to find new ways to help our users get more value out of their experience with Canva. This might be through helping beginners become experts through in-product education in the Onboarding team, or empowering users to download, share, and publish their designs anywhere with the Publish team.
What we're looking for:
A portfolio that demonstrates experience in product thinking where you have previously shipped UX/UI design for digital products.
You are a designer that is constantly inspired—motivating those around you through your passion and drive for what you do.
You are excited by regularly coming up with new ideas, shipping new products and features that address your users’ real needs.
You shine through your designs—creating user flows and wireframes that simplify user interactions
You are eager to visually communicate your ideas through prototypes to test with users.
You thrive in a collaborative workplace; partnering with other designers, engineers, product developers and other disciplines throughout the company.
You appreciate big picture thinking. While details are everything, creating an experience that always keeps our users in mind is equally as important.
You are a problem solver that’s excited by a challenge. You enjoy sitting in a room and whiteboarding ideas to confidently come up with simple, elegant solutions that everyone can move forward with.
You are an empathetic user advocate that values the backing of research and data analysis when it comes to designing modern solutions.
You enjoy a little flexibility in your work. Our growth means there are constantly new things to work on every day, as such it’s likely that you’ll often be working across the board on new and exciting projects.
Canva is currently one of Australia’s hottest technology startups and has been ranked Australia’s #1 place to work.
We mean it when we say we want to create a workplace that you love coming to. Our culture is unlike anywhere else and our offices are designed with workspaces for every mood, to help you do great work. At Canva you can be part of a company that is growing rapidly, building a product that users really love.
One of our core values at Canva, “Being a force for good” means we are actively working towards a world that isn't just good for a small few, but one that’s good for everyone. We believe deeply that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key for building the best product for our equally diverse community. To achieve this, we need to constantly work towards making Canva the best place to work, for everyone.
