About your role

You'll have the opportunity to participate in defining how motion looks at Canva for templates, deliver a wide variety of creative campaigns and the freedom to influence design direction

What you'll do:

  • The intern coming into the Video Squad will not only learn all the amazing skills Canva has on offer, but will also on top of that develop the knowledge on how to produce world class video templates.
  • You will receive training in the principles of video and motion
  • You will be trained on how to make incredible video templates that are engaging, look great and most importantly user friendly
  • You will be exposed on how to conduct effective design research and identify key design trends
  • Learn how to work amongst an agile team and work across a variety of tasks
  • Have an impact across the entire production process and the ability to see your impact on any given project.
  • You will be working amongst some of the best designers and animators in the industry

We'd love it if you have:

  • A strong portfolio or reel demonstrating your passion for design, movement, and editing
  • The confidence to try new things, and a passion for big ideas and storytelling
  • The ability to brief illustrators, animators and videographers to create beautiful and quality content;
  • The ability to work collaboratively in a creative team environment;
  • Diligence to hit deadlines, and offer suggestions to streamline and improve team processes.

While we won't be taking any blood samples, we'd love to see some Startup DNA – you will need to be flexible, pragmatic, strategic, tenacious, and take ownership of deliverables and outcomes – ya gotta have hustle!
