We are responsible for implementing and collaborating on product strategy, road mapping, and prioritisation as our product grows. It’s our responsibility to see products through their entire lifecycle—from concept through to validation, build, post-launch analytics, and iterations.

Canva is currently one of Australia’s hottest technology startups and has been ranked Australia’s #1 place to work.
