Join the team redefining how the world experiences design.

Hey, g'day, mabuhay, kia ora,你好, hallo, vítejte!

Thanks for stopping by. We know job hunting can be a little time consuming and you're probably keen to find out what's on offer, so we'll get straight to the point. 

What you’d be doing in this role

As Canva scales change continues to be part of our DNA. But we like to think that's all part of the fun. So this will give you the flavour of the type of things you'll be working on when you start, but this will likely evolve.

Howdy, howdy! This opportunity is huge - we are a small Smartmockups team, working on the Canva product!  Smartmockups help people and businesses the world over create engaging visual materials. Our online mockup tool features a stellar mockup library, and intuitive design tools and is available anywhere, anytime. Smartmockups is the easiest way to showcase your designs on real-world products. You'll be part of our Processing team who's responsible for turning amazing photos into even more awesome Mockups.

What you’ll do…

  • Being responsible for the retouching team in our processing team
  • Photo Retouching - You will be responsible for retouching objects, people, logos, and minor imperfections, making color adjustments, and overall making the photo look amazing.
  • Collaborate with our 2 other retouchers as well as contractors
  • Delegate work, but roll your sleeves up when necessary. We are a team :) 
  • Creating Mockups in PSD - Your role will involve creating pixel-perfect paths with the pen tool, creating realistic masks with the created paths and brush tool, and working with blending modes to achieve a realistic look (i.e., highlights and shadows). This is something that will be a smaller part of your job description but very important
  • Make the Best Possible Foundation for our Mockups - You will play a crucial role in setting the foundation for our mockups, ensuring they are of the highest quality and meet our standards.
  • Closely Collaborate with Other Team Members from Processing and other teams across Canva- Collaboration is key in this role to achieve overall goals. 
  • Innovation - You will bring new ideas for upgrading and improving our process, contributing significantly to our continual growth and evolution.
  • Being a mentor to more junior team members, helping them to be better and better at photo retouching

What we are looking for

  • 5+ years of Adobe Photoshop expertise 
  • A deep-seated love for photo retouching and an amazingly strong portfolio to prove it
  • Passion for developing and streamlining new processes and looking for ways how to improve the already existing ones.
  • A knack for driving new processes and constantly enhancing existing ones (in PSD)
  • A natural ability to play well with others and contribute to our creativity-charged team environment
  • Autonomous drive with proactive involvement in team initiatives coupled with ever-flowing suggestions to streamline and uplift processes
  • The boldness to try out-of-the-box ideas, infuse freshness, and the flair for storytelling and larger-than-life ideas 
  • Articulate communication abilities and excitement to share and refine ideas collaboratively
  • Diligence to hit deadlines with a great sense of time management.

What's in it for you?

Achieving our crazy big goals motivates us to work hard - and we do - but you'll experience lots of moments of magic, connectivity and fun woven throughout life at Canva, too. We also offer a stack of benefits to set you up for every success in and outside of work.

Here's a taste of what's on offer:

• Equity packages - we want our success to be yours too
