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 -- just check out Twitter!
As a graduate software engineer, you will have the opportunity to work alongside carefully selected engineers from the likes of Google, JetBrains, Yandex, Atlassian, Amazon, Facebook, and 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 also have the opportunity to do meaningful work and build features and functionality that impacts millions of users around the world. Since the Canva code base was built to scale from day one, our engineers get to spend their time optimising performance and releasing new features rather than fixing legacy code. We also have a flat structure where engineers are invited to comment on the direction their peers are taking and are paired for peer-reviewing of code to occur. This ensures that knowledge around the code base is shared and speed of release is quick and efficient. To dig into the in and outs of engineering at Canva, here's an article written by our CTO, Dave, discussing how we get things done.
You'll be working on a massively 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!
