Listing Description

Join the team redefining how the world experiences design.

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, Australia but in Aotearoa, we have a hub in Auckland that we call home to our local operations. And with that, you have choice in how and where you work. That means if you want to do your thing at our Auckland hub (if you're nearby) or 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.

This specific role is tailored around designing, developing and maintaining fundamental infrastructure components within the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) based on the best practices described in the "Google Cloud Architecture Framework". This includes designing and implementing automations around
- GCP Organization structure
- GCP project creation / deletion
- Access control (IAM) for GCP Org
by expanding existing provisioning / baselining services as well as Infrastructure-as-Code modules. 

At the moment, this role is focused on:

  • Designing, implementing and maintaining processes and automations for Canva’s engineering teams to simplify the provisioning and configuration of their workloads in the Cloud and other platforms
  • Be an subject matter expert in Infrastructure-as-Code (specifically, in Terraform and GCP)
  • Developing infrastructure solutions with scalability, high-availability, and security in mind
  • Collaborating with other teams to work out the best solutions to their cloud problems
  • Proposing and contributing to new approaches and solutions to ensure we future-proof Canva's distributed cloud infrastructure as we continue scaling globally

  • You're probably a match if
  • You have advanced coding proficiency in either Python or Golang (both preferred)
  • You have at least 3 years of hands-on experience in designing, maintaining, automating Cloud Infrastructure in Google Cloud Platform
  • You have experience working with infrastructure as code - Terraform (preferred), AWS CloudFormation / SAM / CDK, or similar 
  • You have strong Computer Science background and knowledge of OOP fundamentals
  • An understanding of cloud security best practices
  • Working knowledge of DevOps best practices, Microservices, Kubernetes, Container Orchestration, Serverless
  • About the Team:
    Cloud Essentials team’s primary mission is to provide easy ways to provision, configure and manage fundamental infrastructure components in the Cloud for all engineering teams at Canva. In order to fulfil this mission, we are not only following Software engineering best practices and Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) methodologies, but also designing, maintaining and implementing supportive automations and Cloud architectures.

    Therefore, we expect Cloud Essentials team members to possess a spectrum of skills from general computer science skills, Cloud solution architectures, IaC tooling to high-level programming languages.
