Head of Global Payroll


As Canva continues to rapidly grow and expand globally, the payroll function faces increased complexity in managing regulatory compliance, vendor management, international expansion, systems integration, and technology necessary to support our global payroll operations. In this role, you will take charge of shaping the vision and strategy of the payroll function while leading a motivated team across Australia and the Philippines.

We are looking for a strategic payroll expert to lead our payroll team – someone who seeks to redefine rather than follow the crowd. You are excited by the prospect of driving the evolution of the payroll function unconstrained, looking to elevate capabilities across people, processes, and systems.

As the Head of Global Payroll, you will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the company’s payroll function, including payroll operations, accounting, compliance, and international expansion.

Your expertise and leadership will play a pivotal role in evolving Canva’s capabilities in this space, while ensuring that the payroll function’s roadmap is aligned with the company’s overall strategic objectives and supports its growth plans.
