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.

We're open to remote expression of interest across Australia or New Zealand.

At the moment this role is focused on:

  • Developing digital learning approaches for our flagship Canva University programs: Onboarding, 12 skills, Canva Essentials and Leadership
  • Using your expertise in digital learning to bring a high level of detail, quality and focus to our human skills curriculum, looking at ways to innovate and push the boundaries of UX and Learning Design to deliver impactful learning experiences.
  • Shaping and connecting learning content to our growth and development framework - ensuring all Canvanauts can identify and access learning content toward their goals easily.
  • Partnering with Program Leads to build out custom learning experiences that are scalable, virtual and hybrid friendly.
  • Tracking and analysing instructor and course performance trends and translate these learnings into actions to meet both learning and business goals.
  • Building team workflows and practices for consulting with subject matter experts to build courses.
  • Partnering with our internal and external teams to film and edit courses.
  • Building out our digital learning portfolio to include diverse learning modalities across e-learning, animation, video, podcast, AR/VR, gaming, and simulations.
  • Identifying world-leading subject matter experts, content and speakers to help us build the best curriculums in the world.
  • Running multiple projects and moving parts with differing deadlines, keeping others on track and informed, and ensuring goals are clear and met on time.
  • Overseeing the quality and effectiveness of Canva University programs.

What we're looking for

  • Experience in building out self-paced digital learning solutions and experiences within a large organisation.
  • Experience crafting blended and digital learning products using the latest design and development techniques. To include, micro learning, scenario-based eLearning, simulations, podcasts, video/animation, mobile design, games/gamification.
  • Experience of emerging technologies including AR and VR.
  • Substantial experience working with agile methodologies in a learning context.
  • Expertise in the management of cross functional teams.
  • Delivery of company-wide learning solutions.
  • Creative thinking, planning and management of existing and emerging learning environments
  • Proven ability to develop solutions and learning assets with a commitment to continuous quality improvement, online delivery and learner centricity
  • Experience in inclusive learning design - translating learning across borders, and enhancing the accessibility of learning to a diverse audience.
  • Experience with Authoring Tools and Learning Management Systems

We design, curate and deliver world-class learning experiences to support Canvanauts with the knowledge, skills and mindsets they need at every step of their journey.
