Since launch in April 2013, our user base has grown exponentially, amassing over 20 million users in over 100 languages, making us one of the world's fastest-growing technology companies. As of today, we've achieved profitability, and the company is valued over $3.2 billion, which comfortably prepares us for the next phase of growth and development.
Canva's search functionality is powered by a set of bespoke and open-source tools. One of the key components being our Apache Solr instance and the surrounding services, which are responsible for thousands of queries per second - serving up images, templates, and other design elements to our users all over the world. As we continue to scale up, we’re seeking to build out more search functionality, resiliency, and capability. Thus, we have an opportunity for a software engineer with a specialization extensive experience in Apache Solr or ElasticSearch to join the team and take ownership of that domain.
The Canva workspace is set up for you to do your best work and have a great time doing so, with breakout areas, little nooks, and quiet places to retreat.
