The Audacious Project is the newest initiative at TED, and one of its most ambitious. The goal: each year, curate up to five jaw-dropping ideas with the potential to affect millions of lives or change systems, then rally donors and the public to start full-scale movements around them.
The Audacious Project Creative Director is responsible for developing and directing the editorial strategy around this program, thinking deeply about how to connect with the TED audience and larger public through articles, videos, podcasts, and other media. They will shape how we tell the story of the program at large, and how we communicate the impact of each individual project — from Robin Steinberg’s The Bail Project to Environmental Defense Fund’s MethaneSAT.
We’re looking for a great editor and producer who’s bursting with ideas, who’s a proven leader and up to take on a big role on a small but mighty team. Should have a strong interest in global change, a passion for telling stories that sway hearts and minds, and the multi-platform skills to make everything from newsletters to special video series to social media content shine.
