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 Software Engineering Intern, you will have the opportunity to learn from 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. 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.

We have internships on both the Product Frontend and Backend throughout the summer of 2020/2021.

If your preference is Frontend, you'll be working on a fat client layer, built on Native JavaScript and a new React Mobx Typescript stack, hosted on AWS, 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, or at any stage in your PhD.
  • Have strong Computing and Object-oriented Programming (OOP) Fundamentals
  • Are comfortable working in Java or Javascript but a background in any language is fine!
  • Have strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Have the desire to learn and grow as a technologist
  • Please note that this role is not eligible for immigration sponsorship.

We'd love it if you have:

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