[INTERN] TED Conferences looking to hire 2 Product Interns

Product Intern

TED TECH | New York, NY, United States


TED is a critically acclaimed, award-winning conference and website featuring inspired talks from the world’s leading thinkers and doers. Since 2006, our talks have been watched more than a billion times worldwide. And we’re hiring! We’re looking for friendly, curious, detail-oriented problem-solvers to join our small, collaborative product team.



  • Support product development leads, experience designers, and engineers in detailed data acquisition and analysis, requirement gathering, and project management

  • Perform various quality assurance and program management across mobile applications and emerging platforms

  • Write, copy edit, and perform various editorial related tasks

  • Coordinate with program managers of volunteer translators to help translate ideas and interfaces into different languages

  • Research and evaluate tech trends and competition, and gather requirements for product development



  • Strong writing and communication skills

  • Strong technical background and ability to understand tech challenges and trends

  • Exceptional organizational skills, attention to detail, and ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment

  • Able to execute tasks with minimal guidance, and work well with remote team members

  • Passionate about TED’s content and mission, and about helping to support TED’s leadership

  • Experience with source control tools (GitHub, etc.), and bug reporting software

  • Fluency with Google Calendar, Google Docs, Gmail, and Keynote

  • Big plus: experience in mobile app development and/or user experience design. More brownie points if you are bilingual.


Ideal candidate should be the kind of person who can navigate the multi-device media world with ease — perhaps you download and check out apps for fun, or know the ins-and-outs of mobile-first design principles, or maybe even built a thing or two you can show us. We only hire extremely nice people who love to collaborate in a startup-like environment.


This is a full-time (3 months), paid internship in the TED office in Manhattan. Telecommuting is not an option.
