Media Organization: TED Conferences
TED is a warm and creative workplace, based in New York, where we think all day about sharing ideas. Inside the TED organization, we create the TED Talks video series, the globe-spanning TED Fellows program, the TED-Ed movement to support learners of all ages, and many more idea-driven ideas and initiatives. And it's all powered by our world-class technology, administrative and partnerships teams. We're a values-centered, nonpartisan organization, owned by a nonprofit, with a smart foundation for stable growth. TED is a great place to work
