TED is looking for an experienced Designer to join the Media team’s design department. We’re focused on delivering the best experiences possible across a wide range of platforms – our annual conferences, our editorial channels, our global distribution efforts, new content formats, and much more. This position will report to the Design Director and Associate Art Director.
Roles and responsibilities:
You should be a highly conceptual visual thinker and detailed in the execution of ideas, from cradle to completion. You have created work for digital and print, and are familiar with print processes and production. You’re someone who knows how to create beautiful work and how to share your wealth of knowledge with junior members of the team. Above all else, you understand the importance of community, and are ready to help support your fellow team members. No task is too big or too small, and you are happy to lead as the visionary on a project as well as assist your teammate in the execution of their vision. You are committed to the health of the team as a whole.

This position is based in TED’s Manhattan office.
Generous health/dental/vision benefits and a company-matched 401K are part of the deal. Every employee also gets an annual continuing education allowance to use for attending conferences or taking classes.
Our team is passionate about TED’s content and the prospect of creating a stronger platform to enable the exchange of ideas worldwide. We’re endlessly curious. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. And we love to work alongside nice people.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less), though we’re experimenting with this format everyday. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.
