TED is seeking an Operations Coordinator to join the TEDx media team to manage, refine, and improve our media operations. The focus of this role will be on process management, community outreach and engagement, recruitment and professional development. This position will work directly with the Director of Digital Media & Programming to grow capacity and stimulate change within our complex and high volume operations.
Over the last nine years, the TEDx program has grown rapidly, enabling more than 22,000 independently organized events in more than 170+ countries. These events range from highly produced gatherings in world capitals to small events in rural communities. Talks at these events are filmed and posted online. As a result, there are now more than 120,000 TEDx talks on YouTube, and they were viewed a billion times last year; more than half were delivered in a language other than English. To support this, we are seeking a highly organized, globally minded individual to join our team to keep up with this growth and to maximize the impact of these ideas from around the world.
Key responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

A passion for TED and TEDx and a broad interest in the world – including science/technology, design/architecture, global development, entertainment/arts – will make you a great candidate. Intellectually curious and globally minded, you’ll excel in this role if you believe in the mission of TEDx and TED to spread ideas. The knowledge and skills required for this job include:
