Hey, g'day, mabuhay, kia ora,你好, hallo, vítejte!

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

As Canva scales change continues to be part of our DNA. But we like to think that's all part of the fun. So this will give you the flavour of the type of things you'll be working on when you start, but this will likely evolve.

At the moment, this role is focused on:

You're probably a match if:

  • You possess 5-7 years of experience in engagement marketing, specialising in lifecycle channels such as Email, Push Notifications, and In-App Messages.
  • You have a deep understanding of current trends in lifecycle marketing that significantly impact user retention and engagement.
  • You can demonstrate hands-on expertise in developing and implementing campaigns using a multi-channel tech stack.
  • You've taken ownership of a messaging calendar and project backlog aligned with collaborator priorities.
  • You have a track record of innovation and achieving results through effective utilisation of testing frameworks.
  • Your proficiency in data analysis enables you to extract insights that inform strategy and tactical decisions.
  • You bring extensive experience in driving marketing initiatives on a global scale, catering to a diverse user base.
  • Your proven communication skills enable you to manage multiple priorities and transparently communicate progress.
  • You have previous experience in managing and leading other team members.
About the team:

The mission of the EDU Lead on the Lifecycle Marketing team is to engage our audiences via communications that help them get the most out of Canva and reward them for their contributions to our global community. Working in collaboration with the brand and business teams, you’ll implement recurring lifecycle programs that drive repeat visitorship and brand love. Your keys to success will be: the ability to connect with our community, craft resonant messaging across a range of formats, and efficiently deliver results on a global scale.
