At Canva, we’re transforming the way the world designs. We are well on our journey as a startup - a profitable one (and currently the most valuable private tech company in Australia). As we continue that journey, we are seeking engineers with strong skills in system administration and corporate infrastructure to join us in our HQ in Sydney. 
Secure, scalable, well-maintained systems are the foundation of our development and design processes and we strive to ensure the same for our company’s technology operations.  This is an opportunity to be a member of Canva’s crucial Internal Infrastructure Team, playing a key role in the global expansion of one of the world’s most exciting technology companies.
Currently in our Sydney HQ, we have over 600 people over 6 floors and 3 buildings, conference rooms, multi-use presentation spaces, a cafeteria, a rooftop bar and cafe. We have no plans to grow into a large corporate entity with layers of middle management and archaic processes - but instead, continue our progressive approach to the workplace, using engineering to codify the unique ways in which we work.
As an individual contributor, the role will be focused on the administration, support, and delivery of business-facing projects with respect to our internal systems, apps, and office infrastructure. You will be joining a newly formed Systems Operations function within the Infrastructure Group, with a focus on systems automation and streamlining of IT operations.
