Product design at Canva
 
Canva is looking for an experienced Mobile Designer to join us in our HQ in Sydney. Mobile at Canva means feature parity across web, mobile web and native platforms. This role is key to helping our product become more awesome and accessible on all platforms.
 
Canva reaches millions of users every single day on our different platforms. The mobile teams mission is to empower the world to make beautiful designs on the go. As part of the Mobile team, you will be impacting the mobile user experience by delivering new features on our native applications. 
 
One of the principles of our design team is to ‘show the future’. As designers we transport the rest of the company into a future we’re 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. We 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. Our product designers carry out research, brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and collaboration with our product managers and engineers to ship great products.  We are empathetic user advocates and respect our 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.

  • 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 an empathetic user advocate that values the backing of research and data analysis when it comes to designing modern solutions.
