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 75 million monthly active users across 190 different countries and a team of over 2,800 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

As a Canva Product Manager, your mission is to create the most accessible design tool for every person in the world. You will help drive the direction of this mission, define what that future looks like, and build the products and features to get us there. We believe we can improve the world by empowering people to design and visually communicate better, and that starts with our own product.

Product Managers collaborate with Canva’s Founders to set the strategic direction, scope, and success metrics for product initiatives. We work cross-functionally collaborating with Designers, Engineers, Marketers and Analysts to ensure we continue delivering exceptional user experiences every time someone uses Canva. 

We are responsible for implementing and collaborating on product strategy, road mapping, and prioritisation as our product grows. It’s our responsibility to see products through their entire lifecycle—from concept through to validation, build, post-launch analytics, and iterations.

About the group and team

The Search & Recommendations Group is responsible for the discovery and searchable experience of all Canva content, from the 100-million public assets or a users’ private content. We bring this content to our users in a way that balances relevance and the numerous business needs, ensuring a fast and engaging experience. Search is both a fundamental user need and a critical value multiplier of Canva as a design platform. 

You’ll be responsible for the Search Quality product vision, strategy and roadmap. You will balance new feature development with iterative improvements, while always focusing on quality, speed and reliability. Collaborating with several product teams, you’ll work with highly proficient Engineers, Data Scientists, Analysts, Designers, and Product Managers across Canva.

  • Work closely with various surface owners to build a search that integrates into the homepage, marketplace, and editor seamlessly
  • Engage with technical, product, design and business stakeholders to prioritize and deliver value to the business and users
  • Propose, run, and analyze algorithmic improvements  with our data scientists and analysts - empowering our technical team to make informed decisions

  • You enjoy working with people across many specialties, from other Product Managers to Designers, Engineers, Data Scientists, and Data Analysts.

What you'll achieve in the first 3-6 months

  • Goal #1: Understand user and business needs, defining goals, success measures, and a roadmap for your team
  • Goal #2: Go deeper into the problem space identifying problems and solutions that will drive a better user experience
  • Goal #3: Work with cross-cutting stakeholders and engineers to understand the opportunity and align on the value and importance of search quality
  • Goal #4: Work with the data scientists on deploying a next-generation relevance model for ranking results and content understanding

What you'll learn at Canva

  • You’ll be on the ground floor of building out a world-class and high-traffic search system, working with highly skilled engineers and data scientists
