Product Manager - Developer 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, Australia but in Aotearoa, we have a hub in Auckland that we call home to our local operations. And with that, you have choice in how and where you work. That means if you want to do your thing at our Auckland hub (if you're nearby) or 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.

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. As a Product Manager at Canva you help set this vision, define what that future looks like, and build the products and features that get us there.

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. We are responsible for implementing and collaborating on product strategy, road mapping, and prioritisation as our product grows.

About the Developer Platform Group

The Developer Platform group at Canva is responsible for the tools, processes, and services that allow engineers to develop, test and deploy their code to production efficiently, safely, and securely.

Our mission is "To forge a delightful ecosystem for engineers at Canva, amplifying their craft and enabling them to ship fast and correctly at scale." Our dream is to empower engineers with a world-class developer experience, so they can focus on meaningful tasks while being supported by a toolset they love and trust. We want them to feel like Formula 1 drivers, backed by the best technology and supported by a skilled Developer Platform pit crew, so they’re empowered to unleash their full potential.

As a Product Manager within the CI Platform team, you'll be responsible for a critical part of the developer experience for all Canvanaut engineers, ensuring that we continue to enable engineers to ship high-quality products to our production environments without compromising security, quality, and reliability expectations that our users have from Canva. Our CI system handles millions of builds that build and verify our Canva monorepo which hosts the whole application codebase.

  • Define the vision and strategy for Canva's CI platform that helps engineers meet their security, compliance, and regulatory obligations, minimise developer friction and improve their overall efficiency
  • Drive Canva's adoption of various CI Platform offerings to maximise its leverage and return on investment
