About Review Operations

As Canva’s reach continues to skyrocket, we aim to make Canva the go-to place for all design needs on the web. This involves ensuring that the thousands of new photos, graphics and videos that are uploaded to the Canva library every week, receive a quality assurance review and inspection.

It is critical that all the beautiful content that is being created and uploaded to Canva every single day by our teams, Creators and partners, is consistently reviewed and inspected for visual and technical quality. This is the cornerstone of providing a world class, safe Element library for all Canva users.

We are looking for a skilled and experienced Quality Lead to guide all our Elements review efforts - someone with incredible organizational skills, a self-starter who loves responsibility and has a passion for operations and project management. This role allows the Review Operations Team to function smoothly and supports the Elements Quality Team in hitting their project goals efficiently and effectively.
