At Canva, we’re transforming the way the world designs by building a suite of easy-to-use design tools (for graphics, animation, video, and print) in over 100 languages, and across browser-based and mobile platforms.
Since launch in April 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 30 million users in over 100 languages.  We are the most valuable technology company in Australia, and one of the world’s fastest-growing technology companies in the world.  We’re a values-driven organization with an engineering mindset that applies to everything that we do.  Last year we continued to increase revenue and profitability, grew our valuation, and cracked the Top 10 in the Cloud 100.
