Learning and Development Partner at Canva
Manila, PH
At Canva, we create tools that empower the world to design. Our mission is to make design simple for everyone. Inspired by a team of talented thinkers, an amazing culture and remarkable growth trajectory – we’re out to change the world, one design at a time.
Launched in August 2013, our platform combines a drag-and-drop design tool that is used by more than 10 million users across 179 different countries who have created more than 200 million designs (that’s eight designs created in its apps every second). And we’ve only achieved about 1% of what we’re capable of…
About the team
The mission of Canva’s People team is to hire and support the best engineers, designers, product managers, growth marketers and operations team in the world. Birthed in May 2018, Canva University has already launched a huge range of programs to support the skills people need to be effective - from specialty skill development, onboarding, mentoring, coaching, leadership, and personal development.
