About Us
At Canva, 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.

  • Work closely with vendors to evaluate their offerings and ensure they will meet the requirements of the business
  • Present your analysis and proposals to key stakeholders and guide alignment on the best path forward
  • Collaborate with members of the Business Systems team on the implementation and verification of requirements

What we are looking for:

  • 3+ years of experience in a role where analyzed, proposed and delivered projects that improved how the business worked
  • An eager learner who can pick up new skills quickly
  • Experience gathering requirements and documenting processes while coordinating with cross-departmental and non technical teams
  • An understanding of how systems can be used to improve delivery
  • Curiosity and a desire to understand the root cause of problems
  • Bias for action with a focus on delivering value
  • Strong communication and organization skills 
  • Proven ability to work in fast-paced, ever changing environment 
  • Strong communication skills - verbal and written - be able to break down complex topics into simple solutions and ideas
  • Natural curiosity for learning

As part of the Business Systems team you will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain experience working at one of the world’s fastest growing tech companies; your work will impact millions of Canva’s global users
  • Learn from and work with some of Canva’s best talent, including Canva’s founders, engineers, product & growth professionals
  • Develop and grow in a newly created role with the ability to make and support decisions that impact the development of the business

Being a Force for good. 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.

We make hiring decisions based on your experience, skills and passion. If you’re keen to apply and need reasonable adjustments or would like to note which pronouns you use at any point in the application or interview process, please let us know.

An Insider's view of Canva

How does your team reward individual success?

Canva teams set seasonal goals and we celebrate BIG when we achieve each goal. We have celebrated our success by enjoying taco nights, cocktail classes and currently planning a DIY pottery night. Canva also has a very active #kudos slack channel!

Pooja

Partner Success Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Canva enables me to grow by providing workshops and training sessions that have given me a solid foundation for my role. There is a focus to promote from within and provide everyone the opportunity to explore whichever path they choose. Our “Vibe and Thrive” allowance also makes sure our mental and physical health are always taken care of!

Sales Development Representative

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

One of Canva’s core values is to Make Complex Things Simple. We find innovative ways to make legal concepts more approachable to non-lawyers and reduce the need to involve Legal with every move. By removing complexities we encourage an environment of trust and openness for our internal stakeholders and our millions of users.

What's something quirky about your company?

Season Openers are company events where Canva celebrates our wins and rallies around our goals. They're also some of the most over-the-top and quirky events you'll ever see. On my first day, at my first season opener, I learned about Canva through a Hollywood-worthy parody of "The Office"— I knew then I had found my new home!
