Senior Product Manager - Editing Platform

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.

Where and how you can work

Our flagship campus is in Sydney. We also have a campus in Melbourne and co-working spaces in Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. But you have choice in where and how you work, we trust our Canvanauts to choose the balance that empowers them and their team to achieve their goals.

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.

At the moment, this role is focused on:

  • Developing and refining the product roadmap for Editing Platform based on user needs, business objectives, and technical feasibility.
  • Conducting market research, competitive analysis, and gathering user feedback for product strategy.
  • Serve as main point of contact between Editing Platform team and other product teams.
  • Work with engineering team to understand technical challenges and guide technical decisions.
  • Monitor platform KPIs, identify areas for optimization, and ensure infrastructure supports demands.
  • Communicate with stakeholders and present product updates and strategic plans.
  • Lead innovation efforts to enhance platform capabilities and user experience.

You're probably a match if

  • You are technical proficient and curious about modern technologies.
  • You are a strategic thinker with demonstrated experience setting up long-term goals for platform teams.
  • You are a collaborative leader that fosters teamwork and communicates effectively.
  • You have deep user empathy to understand user needs and prioritize user experience.
  • You are adaptable and can manage change and uncertainty with resilience.

About the team

The Editing Platform group supports the editor through a secure, performant, reliable, and scalable platform. They provide the core backend services that allow users to create, import, edit, collaborate on, and download their designs.

As a Product Manager in Editing Platform, you’ll be responsible for helping multiple teams identify and prioritize the right problems at the right time to ensure Canva’s editor can continue to scale to serve all our users. You’ll work with dependent teams to triage requests and create a roadmap that brings clarity to the Editing Platform teams and their stakeholders. You’ll partner closely with PM’s in other groups like Video, Presentations, Editing, and Collaboration, to better understand the needs of our users and identify opportunities to improve the platform capabilities to meet their needs.

This is a product role that requires a deep understanding of the ins and outs of how the Editor works. You will become an expert in the underlying technology as well as the user interface and experience to help bridge the gap between the two and help the Editing Platform teams deliver technical solutions that create the best experience for all our users.

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 range of benefits to set you up for every success in and outside of work.

  • Equity packages - we want our success to be yours too
  • Inclusive parental leave policy that supports all parents & carers
  • An annual Vibe & Thrive allowance to support your wellbeing, social connection, office setup & more
  • Flexible leave options that empower you to be a force for good, take time to recharge and supports you personally
