Role:

Canva is looking for a Senior Product Designer to join their team. One of the principles of their design team is to ‘show the future’. Designers transport the rest of the company into a future they are yet to build. A big part of the role of a product designer at Canva is to be a visionary—visualising and reinventing the future of design. 

Product designers at Canva take the dream and make it something everyone can relate to and rally behind. They start from the very early stages: finding the right problem to tackle, exploring ideas for how to solve it and then refining it into a coherent solution. Their product designers carry out research, brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and collaboration with their engineers to ship great products. They are empathetic user advocates and respect their users’ opinions through interviews, usability testing, and data analysis, as well as wireframing, flowcharting, and journey mapping to show the different stages that customers go through as they come into contact with Canva.

They currently have 11 Product Designers based in Sydney and ideally want to double in size over the next 6 months. They are hiring at multiple levels so whether you have 3 years or 15 years experience, you could still be the ideal candidate!

Details:

What we look for:

  • You have at least 5 years experience in a Product Design role with a portfolio that demonstrates experience in product thinking where you have previously shipped UX/UI design for digital products.
  • You are a designer that is constantly inspired—motivating those around you through your passion and drive for what you do.
  • You are excited by regularly coming up with new ideas, shipping new products and features that address your users’ real needs. 
  • You shine through your designs—creating user flows and wireframes that simplify user interactions 
  • You are eager to visually communicate your ideas through prototypes to test with users.  
  • You thrive in a collaborative workplace; partnering with other designers, engineers, product developers and other disciplines throughout the company.
  • You appreciate big picture thinking. While details are everything, creating an experience that always keeps our users in mind is equally as important. 
  • You are a problem solver that’s excited by a challenge. You enjoy sitting in a room and whiteboarding ideas to confidently come up with simple, elegant solutions that everyone can move forward with.  
  • You are an empathetic user advocate that values the backing of research and data analysis when it comes to designing modern solutions. 
  • You enjoy a little flexibility in your work. Our growth means there are constantly new things to work on every day, as such it’s likely that you’ll often be working across the board on new and exciting projects.

What you'll learn at Canva:

  • How to think beyond mockups and prototypes—applying novel approaches and design thinking to the entire product development cycle.
  • How to think creatively and collaboratively into the future. We are passionate, inspired, motivated individuals who are excited by big vision projects that give us all the opportunity to think like a CEO—constantly pushing ourselves.
  • How to push your creativity and passion to the limit. How to solve problems that have never been solved before.
