Canva’s Commitment and Mission

At Canva, we celebrate diversity. We deeply believe that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key to building the best product, team and company. We look for many different skills and abilities, as well as how you can enhance Canva and our culture. So, even if you don’t think you quite meet all of the skills listed or tick all the boxes, we’d still love to hear from you! 

Our mission at Canva is to empower the world to design and since launching in 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 110+ million monthly active users across 190 different countries and a team of over 3,400 people… and the best bit is that we’ve only achieved 1% of what we know we’re capable of. 

Join us and design your future.

Product Management @ Canva

The mission of Product Managers at Canva is to create the most accessible design tool for every person in the world. We believe that we can improve the world by empowering everyone to design and communicate visually.

Product Managers collaborate with Canva’s founders to set the strategic direction, scope, and success metrics for product initiatives. We work across teams of designers, software engineers, marketers, and analysts to ensure we're delivering an exceptional experience to all our users. As our product grows, we are responsible for implementing and collaborating on product strategy, road mapping, and prioritisation.

It’s our responsibility to see products through their entire lifecycle—from concept through to validation, build, post-launch analytics, and iterations.

About the Editing Group

The Editing group at Canva is responsible for delivering value to users through our world-class design editor. On our mission to empower everyone to design anything, we are always thinking about a wide range of user problems and building features to address a diverse set of use cases for the Canva editor. The Canva Editor empowers our users to do everything from collaborative whiteboarding to creating digital documentation with Canva Docs.

The Canva Docs Team is focused on building a visual, engaging document editor that leverages the power of the rest of the Canva platform to deliver a truly unmatched experience for all our users.
