Canva’s Commitment and Mission

At Canva, we celebrate diversity. We deeply believe that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key to building the best product, team and company. We look for many different skills and abilities, as well as how you can enhance Canva and our culture. So, even if you don’t think you quite meet all of the skills listed or tick all the boxes, we’d still love to hear from you! 

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. 

Join us and design your future.

The Team & Role
Canva’s People team has a big mission to build the most effective and engaged company in the world! Our success is finding, growing and empowering the best Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Growth Marketers and operators in the world. 

Recruiting is a core strategic driver of Canva’s success - we’ve hired some of the best people from all over the world and it takes a curious, tenacious and creative Recruiter to make sure we’re always discovering talent that will take Canva into the future. 

As the Product & Design Recruiter, you'll develop meaningful relationships with product and design stakeholders to understand Canva’s continually evolving Design and Product organisation. You will own the hiring efforts for Product Designers, Brand Designers, Product Managers and other specialised roles within our product and design teams.

You'll develop creative recruiting strategies whilst focussing on global sourcing, diversity hiring, and innovative approaches to passive candidate engagement. You will be passionate about delivering an awesome candidate experience and act as the primary advocate for candidates leading them through the recruiting and interviewing process, connecting them to the magic of working at Canva.

Please note this is a fixed term contract position for 12 months.

What you'll do:

  • Hire the best Product Managers, Product Designers and Photographers
  • Work closely with your hiring managers across EMEA to gain a deeper understanding of their organisations and how each role you hire fits into Canva. 
  • Collaborate with the recruiting teams (Sydney and Europe)  to develop and execute creative sourcing strategies that ensure we bring diverse talent into the product and design teams.
  • Identifying top talent through various passive channels, including research, boolean searches, referrals, events and sourcing campaigns. 
  • Keep candidates warm and engaged! 
  • Share the Canva story, vision and culture with prospective candidates and act as a brand ambassador when representing Canva and job opportunities in the external marketplace.
  • Employer branding activities - build a strong employer brand in the Czech Republic and collaborate with our teams on building a strong EB strategy in EMEA.
  • Entire life-cycle recruiting: You’ll own the recruiting process from start to the end, sourcing, interviewing and hiring top talent. 
  • Be obsessed with the candidate’s experience!
  • Data-driven: You always try to improve our hiring process, and you will think with a data-first approach.

What we're looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience in a fast-paced recruitment role and have a successful track record of hiring top design talent. 
  • You have experience hiring Product managers, Designers, Photographers or similar positions
  • You’re an independent, adaptable and highly motivated Recruiter who loves what you do. 
  • You’re able to get into the details and deliver quality results on time.
  • You’re a wearer of many hats and can juggle multiple priorities at the same time.
  • You’re creative (and know that job adverts and LinkedIn are not the only channels of headhunting candidates).
  • You love to research and understand that the art of sourcing is always evolving.
  • You get stuck into various platforms, technology tools, social networks and databases to uncover the best talent in the world.
  • You have the aptitude to leverage our product, culture and mission of Canva to attract the right candidates.
