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

The technical strategies you develop and implement will lead to solving problems of huge impact across the business and our millions of users. Your roadmap will encompass innovative "big bets" that will deliver step-change growth for Canva. It will be your responsibility to set the technical strategy and oversee and deliver on highly complex, green-field projects which venture into new domains for the business.
