Motion Designer - Digital Design

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. That means if you want to do your thing in the office (if you're near one), at home or a bit of both, it's up to you. 

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:

  • Understanding the discovery phase ( user testing, research, competitor analysis,  wireframes, user flows etc.) to get a clear picture of the problem and solutions.
  • Translating insights, data and user research into prototypes to validate ideas with stakeholders and end users. 
  • Designing creative and on-brand visual solutions such as hero banners, graphics, UI motions, landing pages and websites that drive users to the product and inspire them to create a design.
  • Working closely with engineers during implementation and reviewing final deliverables with an exacting eye, ensuring that layout, images, typography and general experience is flawless and on-brand.
  • Iterating and optimising pages and user flows for conversion.
  • Designing at scale keeping in mind internationalisation, CMS integration, accessibility, design system, mobile design and various technical constraints.

You're probably a match if

  • You have an exceptional portfolio demonstrating your passion for motion design or animation in landing pages. 
  • You strongly understand user behaviour and how to drive conversion through motion and interaction design. 
  • You work iteratively and have experience with A/B testing, User testing and using data to inform design decisions.
  • You are comfortable with the various acquisition channels (SEO, SEM, Social etc..) and are able to provide holistic, consistent and performant solutions. 
  • You shine through your motion designs, creating storybooks that tell a clear story to enhance the user experience.
  • You are eager to visually communicate your ideas through prototypes to test with users.  
  • You thrive in a collaborative workplace partnering with other designers, engineers, product developers, and other disciplines throughout the company.
