Hey, g'day, mabuhay, kia ora,你好, hallo, vítejte!
Thanks for stopping by. We know job hunting can be a little time consuming and you're probably keen to find out what's on offer, so we'll get straight to the point.
Where and how you can work
Our flagship campus is in Sydney. We also have a campus in Melbourne and co-working spaces in Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. But you have choice in where and how you work. That means if you want to do your thing in the office (if you're near one), at home or a bit of both, it's up to you.
What you’d be doing in this role
As Canva scales change continues to be part of our DNA. But we like to think that's all part of the fun. So this will give you the flavour of the type of things you'll be working on when you start, but this will likely evolve.
Almost 100% of our users will interact with Search and Recommendations Group features every time they come to Canva. We are responsible for the AI, Machine Learning, Infrastructure, & User Experience that powers many parts of Canva’s core product experience.
Our work is the key discovery mechanism to promote and expose Canva’s content to current and potential users. Without good discovery, users will never know we even have content!
Once you’ve settled in and have a comfortable grasp of the product, environment, and processes, you’ll get to tackle more responsibility and start leveraging your previous experience — bringing new insights to the table concerning everything from feature development, process improvement, and product suggestions. Your day to day activities will consist of solution design and hands-on software development – working closely with leads, designers, and product managers to deliver features and functionality to our customers all over the world.
Some of the key capabilities we own/contribute include:
- Running & deploying our core search & recommender indexes & services
- Improving our ML rankers across search & recommendations
- Integrating AI technologies into our ranking & content understanding capabilities
- Building the amazing search & recommendations experience in the editor & marketplace
- Building the private search experience - similar to Google Drive
- Iterating on our generative design product - Magic Design
- Experience in using machine learning / data science to conceive, implement and deploy product features (especially in search/recommendations)
- Experience in quick validation of new ideas via prototypes and solid measurement of benefit via experiments (especially in search/recommendations)
- Query understanding
- Natural language processing
- Machine learning in search
- Data analysis in search
- Recommendation models
Experience in any of these areas is beneficial:
