Head of Sourcing // CANVA


Francisco works at Canva as the recruitment lead for Backend Engineering and Android recruitment.  Although he has a bachelors’s degree in Cognitive Psychology and a doctorate in Law, he has always been a tinkering technologist at heart.
After moving from the United States to Australia, he entered the technology recruitment market to gain a better understanding of the Australian and Asia Pacific technology landscape.
Having worked with many large ASX-listed corporates as well as many a scrappy startups, he aims to educate businesses on “best practice” with respect to the recruitment process, technology, and candidate experience.

Francisco is not really a recruiter, he operates as a business partner within the organisations he works with to make sure he is connecting the right candidate to the needs of business he supports.He is the most technically gifted person in his industry I have ever come across, understands and has a passion for technology and would probably be able to do most of the roles he places. Francisco is without a doubt the crème de la crème in his industry.
