Senior Data Scientist - Pexels

Full time

Employment Information

Join the team redefining how the world experiences design.

Hiya, 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 we have a swanky new office in London that has all the bells and whistles. Even though you’ll find us in Shoreditch, you have choice in where and how you work, we trust our Canvanauts to choose the balance that empowers them and their team to achieve their goals.

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.

At the moment, this role is focused on:

  • Find insights that help us understand both Pexels and our customers - we want you to be creative and insightful, rather than just throwing the usual metrics at the wall to see what sticks.
  • Suggest and run interesting experiments that will actually move our metrics - when we push tests to 100% we want to actually see the bump in the relevant graph.
  • Build and maintain dashboards for our product teams, and make them look really good - you don’t need to be a designer or have any design talent, you just need to want to build cool things!
  • Own projects, data models, dashboards, and other artifacts and keep them up-to-date and high quality in a hypergrowth environment.
  • Use our giant databases to answer the sort of questions that sound really simple but turn out to be challenging (and fun!).
  • Help us extend data literacy and curiosity throughout the whole company.

You’re probably a match if

  • You have strong competency with SQL. Experience with data warehouses such as Snowflake, Redshift, or BigQuery is a plus!
  • You are experienced with data wrangling and analyzing data using Python or R.
  • You can demonstrate skills across optimizing product funnels, running experiments, and building dashboards that effectively communicate results and outcomes.
  • You may have a grounding in mathematics/statistics and a bachelor’s degree in a STEM area (not mandatory).
  • You may have played with very large data sets (not mandatory).
  • You are a strong communicator, verbally and written, with the ability to break down complex topics into simple solutions and ideas.
