Ngā Manawanuitanga me ngā uaratanga o Canva 

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 86 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.

About the Ecosystem Group

Canva’s Ecosystem Group was formed in 2021, unifying Canva’s developer ecosystem investments, to create an abundant (app and developer) ecosystem that tailors Canva for each user. Our aim is to build the world’s richest Ecosystem of apps and integrations for visual design and communications on Canva. We are building strategic integrations, developing a platform to enable apps with seamless workflows, and building an array of developer tools.

We are building out the next-generation developer platform, called the Canva API, to provide developers flexibility in creating innovative app experiences within Canva. We are already working with a number of third-party developers using the Canva API, and you will drive the future of this platform and the corresponding app ecosystem.

This role will work directly with the GM for Canva Ecosystem and the Ecosystem Engineering, Design, and Partnerships leadership team to ensure the success, growth, and adoption of the Canva API and associated ecosystem. You'll work with Engineering and Group leadership across Canva product teams to ensure close alignment between Canva API and the growth objectives of key existing and emerging products across Canva.

What you'll be doing

    • Develop and lead the vision, strategy, and roadmap for the future of Canva API
    • Partner with key members across Canva product teams to ensure close alignment between Canva API and the growth objectives of key existing and emerging products across Canva
    • Build a highly aligned and collaborative PM team for Canva API and build an ecosystem of apps using these APIs
    • Regularly review and update the vision and strategy for Canva API in collaboration with the cross-functional leadership team and in an open and inclusive manner
    • Maintain a solid understanding of the end-to-end user experience across key user segments within the Ecosystem business and set priorities for delight
    • Understand Ecosystem competitive position in major markets and ensure we maintain a strong position that aligns with our business principles
    • Instill a culture of data-driven decision-making within the team

About you

    • Experience coaching Product Managers to shape and deliver product roadmaps
    • Product Management experience of a software product (with platform or integrations experience a huge plus) launching and landing high-quality products
    • Both passion for and experience shipping tools for developers. For example, you’ve shipped APIs, client libraries, and/or CLIs
    • You understand more than just the fundamentals of good UX. You love Canva’s seamless and simple design, and are going to be ruthless in protecting that
    • Experience working across all phases of the SDLC and understand both the excitement and challenges that developers face at each phase
    • leads through influence, not necessarily through authority
