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 a 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 50 million monthly 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, but we think we think we are only 1% of the way there to achieving what is possible, which is really exciting because there is so much more we can do. 

About the Product Design team

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 team

The Video Team at Canva is on a mission to make the default video editor for everyone. 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 for video platforms. 

Goals you’ll achieve

Canva Video has one of the largest audiences of content creators in the world. As the Video product matures into a video editor that anyone can use, your key focus will be ensuring we have an amazing experience for all the new users trying video for the first time. You’ll be a key driver to help achieve our vision of democratising video storytelling for everyone. You’ll dive deep into the problem space of how everyone can use video to tell their story; from individuals, to small businesses and upto large organisations.
