At Canva, we work everyday to make a significant positive impact on society. Our mission is to democratise design and empower creativity for anyone and everyone! Launched just over 3 years ago, Canva provides a simple-to-use online graphic design tool that is used by more than 10 million users in 179 different countries across the world. Canva is currently one of Australia’s hottest technology startups and has been ranked #1 Australian Workplace in Technology by JobAdvisor for the second year in a row.
Canva’s entire mission revolves around design, and the design of the product is central to the philosophies of the company and its founders. An exceptionally designed product is crucial for us to deliver on our vision of “empowering the entire world to design”.
As a product designer at Canva, it’s your mission to create experiences that distill the complex into the simple and give ordinary people the ability to make extraordinary things. We place a strong emphasis on the role of product designers at all stages of our product development process. This means they are involved all the way from the start: helping to define the product vision; to the end: ensuring that actual customers receive a high-quality experience.
