Since launch in April 2013 we have grown exponentially, amassing over 10 million users in over 100 languages, making us one of the world's fastest growing technology companies. We're growing rapidly and building a product that users really love.

As a Software Engineering Intern, you will have the opportunity to learn from engineers who has worked with the likes of Google, JetBrains, Yandex, Atlassian, Amazon, Facebook, and other popular technology houses from all over the world. You will get the opportunity to learn and apply best-practice software engineering, focused on strong software engineering fundamentals and pragmatism. You will have the opportunity to do meaningful work and build features and functionality that impacts millions of users around the world.

We have internships on both Product Frontend and Backend Engineering throughout Summer 2021/2022.

If your preference is Backend, you'll be working on a massive distributed backend environment - built on Java microservices, hosted on AWS, and utilizing a variety of tools, technologies, services, and libraries. We've got some nifty bespoke components that do a bit of magic as well!

This will be perfect for you if you:

  • Are currently within 12-18 months of completing a Bachelor's or Master's degree, at any stage in your PhD, or have completed software engineering/web development certifications
  • Have strong Computing and Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) Fundamentals
  • Are comfortable working in Java
  • Have strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Have the desire to learn and grow as a technologist
  • Have less than a year of full-time software engineering experience excluding internships.

It would be awesome if you also have:

  • AWS or Google Cloud experience
  • Experience working with databases - SQL and/or NoSQL is fine!

Unfortunately, Canva does not sponsor immigration visas for internships at this time.

Requirements:

  • Please provide us with the latest PDF copies of your CV and grades/transcript (or certificate of completion from engineering/web development courses) by compressing them into a zip file and uploading it via our Careers Page.

We ensure that the Canva workspace is set up for you to do your best work and have a great time doing so, with breakout areas, little nooks, quiet places to retreat.

We have three in-house chefs that whip up amazing breakfasts and lunches for the whole team, check out what's cooking at: https://www.instagram.com/canvalife/
