We celebrate uniqueness and whatever makes you, you and encourage everyone who wants to help us transform the way the world designs, to join us on this journey.

About UsAt Canva, 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 a 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 60 million monthly active users across 190 different countries who have created more than 6 Billion designs. We are one of the world’s fastest-growing technology companies and we have only achieved about 1% of what we want to do.
About the teamThe People Group’s mission is to create the most effective and engaged company in the world.The People Development Centre of Excellence is a new team at Canva that consists of HR generalists and specialists that design and deliver transformative people strategies and programs for talent identification (internal), development, engagement, and movement. So far we’ve built a global company-wide career framework, job architecture system, and performance management process... and we are just getting started!
Our mission is to deliver strategies, products, and programs that energise our employees and foster an experience where everyone can design the best work of their lives. We do this by understanding our internal people development landscape and cultural context, researching new ideas and data-backed practices, reimagining traditional People Development programs and processes, collaborating and designing with partners across the company, and delivering innovative solutions at scale.
About the roleWe are seeking an outstanding Program Designer to lead the evolution of Canva’s competency framework (growth and development model) and embed it within all our related programs and experiences across the company.
Our competency framework forms the backbone for how our Canvanauts understand their roles, where and how to grow their skills, and how and when to seize new challenges and opportunities for their long-term development and impact.
You’ll be the main driver for this critical body of work and will work closely with organisational leaders and HR partners (Talent Acquisition, Learning & Development, Internal Coaching, Total Rewards, People Partners) to ensure embedding across the employee lifecycle (hiring, onboarding, and more).
You will continuously hold a high bar for the employee experience of this foundational work, such that it is seamlessly driving and inspiring growth that is grounded in Canva’s core competencies (skills) and values.
What you’ll doYou’ll be the owner, thought leader, and rallier behind further embedding Canva’s growth and development model across the business, and improving both its user experience and effectiveness in driving the growth of 2,000+ (and growing!) Canvanauts.
One of our core values at Canva, “Being a force for good” means we are actively working towards a world that isn't just good for a small few, but one that’s good for everyone. We believe deeply that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key for building the best product for our equally diverse community. To achieve this, we need to constantly work towards making Canva the best place to work, for everyone.
