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 86 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.

About Security Engineering Managers

You will support your teams to solve complex security problems at scale, and help them meet their goals and objectives and help make complex security problems simple. 

About the Security Group 
The Security Group is responsible for protecting Canva systems and data from information security threats.
