At Canva, we create tools that empower the world to design. Our mission is to democratise design and empower creativity for anyone on any platform. Inspired by a team of talented thinkers, an amazing culture, and remarkable growth trajectory—we’re out to change the world, one design at a time.
Since launch in April 2013 we have grown exponentially, amassing over 20 million monthly active users across 190 different countries who have created more than 2 billion designs. We are one of the world’s fastest growing technology companies and we have only achieved about 1% of what we are hoping to do! We're growing rapidly and building a product that users really love -- just check out Twitter!
One of the principles of our design team is to ‘show the future’. As designers we transport the rest of the company into a future we’re yet to build. A big part of the role of a UX designer at Canva is to be a visionary—visualising and reinventing the future of design.
UX Designers at Canva take the dream and make it something everyone can relate to and rally behind. We start from the very early stages: finding the right problem to tackle, exploring ideas for how to solve it and then refining it into a coherent solution. Our UX designers carry out research, brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and collaboration with our engineers to ship great products. We are empathetic user advocates and respect our users’ opinions through interviews, usability testing, and data analysis, as well as wireframing, flowcharting, and journey mapping to show the different stages that customers go through as they come into contact with Canva.
