At Canva, we create tools that empower the world to design. Our mission is to democratise design and empower creativity for anyone and everyone, on every platform! 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.
Since launch in August 2013 we have grown exponentially, amassing over 18 million active users across 190 different countries who have created more than 1 billion designs. We are one of the world’s fastest growing technology companies and we have only achieved about 1% of what we are capable of!
We opened our Manila office last 2014 and since then, we’ve grown our small team of eight to an amazingly diverse team of 200... and counting! Since day one, we’ve been committed to making Canva the best place to work and we have a dedicated Vibe team to look after just that. 
As we continue to grow our Manila operations, we are looking for a Pastry Chef to join the Vibe team who will help ensure a smooth flow of daily operations particularly supporting the graveyard shift operations.

When needed, there are also a variety of cakes and desserts, healthy snacks or meal to be prepared for weekend events hosted by Canva. 
If you're keen to work with a zestful cross-cultural team, then we'd love to hear from you!
