We believe deeply that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key for building the best product for our equally diverse community all around the world. We celebrate uniqueness and whatever makes you, you and encourage everyone who wants to help us transform the way the world designs, to join us on this journey. We value all different types of experiences. If you don’t think you quite meet all of the qualifications, we’d still love to hear from you.
At Canva, our mission is to democratise design and empower creativity for anyone and everyone, on every platform. Inspired by a team of talented thinkers, an amazing culture and a remarkable growth trajectory – we’re out to change the world, one design at a time.
Since launch in August 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 60 million monthly active users across 190 different countries who have created more than 6 Billion designs. We are one of the world’s fastest-growing technology companies and we have only achieved about 1% of what we want to do.
Location: West Coast with a preference for Los Angeles or San Francisco. We are also open to candidates globally who are open to relocation to the US or Australia.
Content & Discovery is Canva’s fastest-growing group, with over 600+ staff including product managers, engineers, product designers, visual designers, data scientists, creative contractors and more; it traces its lineage to Canva’s very first team! (“Marketplace”). We own Canva’s content strategy across supply and demand.
Canva wouldn’t be the same without its library of content and the ability to discover it to kickstart creativity.
As the Head of Search & Recommendations, you will be a visionary, defining the future vision of how search and recommendation works in the Canva product and library. You will build and lead our rapidly growing product and engineering team through strategy, development and the implementation of S&R technologies for the best possible user experience. We are not looking to make small step changes. We are striving for significant growth in this space and are looking to invest heavily with the right leader at the helm.
One of our core values at Canva, “Being a force for good” means we are actively working towards a world that isn't just good for a small few, but one that’s good for everyone. We believe deeply that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key for building the best product for our equally diverse community. To achieve this, we need to constantly work towards making Canva the best place to work, for everyone.
