Senior Technical Program Manager- Data Platform

Join the team redefining how the world experiences design.

Hey, hello, hiya, 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

Technical Program Managers are a key part of Canva’s product development, as we work with senior managers and development teams to build a sustainable culture of positive urgency in delivery. We lead complex, multi-disciplinary programs and can easily switch gears. We are as comfortable working with leadership to set strategic goals and clarity priorities, as we are working with teams to communicate program status, escalate issues and manage dependencies, or discussing technical trade-offs with an engineer. We wear as many hats as we need to to get the job done.

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:

  • Work with a varied group of stakeholders to define and deliver key business outcomes. 
  • Ensure an appropriate degree of consistency in planning, documentation and core practices across teams to ensure meaningful velocity and promote our ability to scale how teams work across Canva
  • Understand the technical solution, be able to facilitate technical discussions with Engineering teams, help identify and close gaps
  • Build partnerships with cross-functional teams to influence decisions, drive alignment and prioritization
  • Monitor and track delivery status across multiple teams and projects
  • Promote accountability towards sustainable program delivery
  • Manage open issues relating to program delivery
  • Assess and manage program risks
  • Manage dependencies across teams and groups
  • Facilitate effective, timely and transparent team decision making practices
  • Facilitate continual improvement rituals to build the effectiveness of product development and engineering teams
  • Build a culture and environment to achieve excellence and innovation

You're probably a match if

  • A minimum of 5 years TPM experience at a established and complex environment
  • Deep understanding of Agile product development processes
  • Experience working with cloud data platforms with good understanding of related technology, tooling, governance and practices. 
  • Experience working with Product Managers, Designers and Engineers to deliver key company initiatives
  • Comfortable with ambiguity in a fast-paced environment with shifting priorities
  • A natural communicator who leads through influence, not authority
  • A love for navigating complexity and tackling ambiguous problems 
  • Process-oriented but flexible in approach
  • Motivated to provide an inclusive and psychologically safe environment for our diverse team to collaborate together, in a timely fashion, towards shared goals
  • Introspective focus to continually improve the effectiveness of Canva’s teams
  • Dedicated to personal growth and improving in your craft as a TPM 
  • Leadership capability to ensure clarity, alignment and accountability to achieve our crazy big goals
  • Ability to think strategically but also able to make crazy big goals happen. This role will be very hands-on!
