Our mission at Canva is to empower the world to design and since launching in 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 100+ million monthly active users across 190 different countries and a team of over 3,000 people… and the best bit is that we’ve only achieved 1% of what we know we’re capable of.

Want to join Canva?
Canva would not exist without content. Our templates, photos, fonts, stock media and more play a critical and pivotal role in empowering our users to design anything and publish anywhere. Content has far reaching business impact and is a key driver of user acquisition, retention and revenue
The content strategy & insights team’s mission is to build the most valuable content library in the world to inspire our users to create their next design. We work collaboratively across the content & discovery group, and other group’s to identify & implement opportunities to drive user engagement through content.

About the role
As the Content Business partner for docs, whiteboards and websites you will be responsible for delivering a robust & cohesive content strategy, and delivering against this in partnership with our content teams, marketing teams, and product teams. You will be responsible for ensuring the content is compelling, relevant, and fresh; and driving the growth in engagement of that content in partnership with marketing, product & other key partners.
Working with our world-class content teams is a unique opportunity – you'll be exposed to the newest Canva products, and will play a key role in their success!

What You'll Do

  • Build the strategic and operational content planning process for docs, whiteboards & websites, and successfully deliver against this
  • Build a deep understanding of our key users & use cases by doctype, and monitor user engagement & experience to identify opportunities
  • Use data & insights to build out a robust content strategy & calendar which is aligned with the broader product & company priorities
  • Build the GTM plan to drive engagement & revenue through our content in partnership with product, marketing & other key partners

About You:

  • Have 4+ years proven experience in strategy, content, and/or a Go-to-market role or equivalent
  • Prior experience partnering with marketing & product to bring your strategy & plan to life
  • Can ruthlessly prioritize fast-moving strategic priorities, tackle operational challenges, and manage through hyper-growth
  • A bias for action, constantly striving to get things done. You have a strong sense of urgency when it comes to unblocking teams
  • Can rally teams and influence peers across the organisation. You love building relationships that lead to success and business growth.
  • Ability to think strategically (beyond just the here and now), and synthesise lots of complex information to come up with a strategy & plan with tangible impact
  • Ability to work autonomously in a fast-paced, high-growth environment.

What you'll learn and how you'll develop at Canva:

  • How to adapt to any situation in a hyper-growth environment where we are still developing the systems & process for operational excellence

  • You’ll push the boundaries of what you think is achievable.
