Research and Design at Canva
As a company with design so central to its DNA, our design teams play an integral part in the vision and success of our company. Our Product Design team across Sydney and Beijing is growing rapidly and needs a Design Researcher who will plan and conduct user research to generate actionable insights for a variety of projects, and provide direction on Canva’s roadmap through design research. You will be primarily involved in early phases of a project, ensuring the products and features we ship are solving real user problems.
As our Design Researcher, you will be an integral part of Canva’s growth trajectory by driving projects with high strategic value and working on design research across all of Canva’s products. Focussing on qualitative insights, you will unlock insights for our Product Designers to use as inputs that continue to improve Canva’s product.
The ideal candidate is an all-round qualitative researcher with both planning, facilitation and some design skills. They will thrive in a fast paced work environment that requires strong problem solving skills and independent self-direction, coupled with an aptitude for team collaboration and open communication. This individual should have a passion for understanding and defining the needs and behaviours of customers, and for working with the product teams and key brand stakeholders to create exceptional features that serve the needs of our users. At Canva, successful researchers have the opportunity to exercise and show off all their researcher skills, influence the design direction of the company and see their insights drive features that go live on a regular basis.
