About the Group
We're on a mission to help our users meet their needs in every situation. Help and support, especially at scale, is a complex and exciting problem space. Canva’s User Voice Help and Community team’s mission is to make getting help and inspiration simple for everyone and every design. Their purpose will ensure customers can easily exchange help, ideas, and inspiration with people using Canva around the world.
This Group Lead role will ensure that all parts of User Voice’s global network are built in a scalable manner and run as optimally and efficiently as possible.

The Group lead will map out the requirements of the rest of User Voice, and Canva are understood and will equip the group with the right skills, organisational design, resources, roadmap, and operational capabilities to deliver.

  • A deep love, and significant experience, of solving User issues at scale.
  • You thrive in constantly evolving environments, seeing opportunity everywhere and keeping a focus on delivery.
  • Direct experience in many of the areas of responsibility and capabilities.
  • You can use the numbers to prioritise and tell a story, and you’re also connected with the individual stories or each user.
  • You'll get buy-in from key stakeholders and have a track record of bringing people on the journey with you – they know what’s changing and why.
  • You love collaborating with people from different teams and countries and sharing a vision for User Experience but can also work independently.
  • You’ve got a good balance between big-picture thinking and nailing the details.
  • You’re not afraid of sophisticated problems – in fact, that’s where you thrive.
  • You know how to prioritize tenaciously and handle responsibilities for a wide number of projects – focusing your attention on the areas that matter most.
  • You like to move quickly, and aren’t afraid of fast growth and rapid change. Canva is growing faster than you can imagine – which means solutions that worked 6 months ago might break. You’re up for that challenge.
