About National Geographic

National Geographic was founded in 1888 by a group of visionaries who embodied an era of exploration, discovery, invention, and change. With offices around the world and headquarters in Washington, D.C., today we are one of the world's largest scientific and educational institutions.

We offer a unique opportunity to be part of a world-class institution, a strong global brand, and an organization with a rich history of scientific discovery and exploration.

Every day matters. A career with us means working hard to achieve our mission in a collaborative and inclusive culture. We have a talented team with diverse people, ideas, interests, and skills. Our behaviors are guided by a deep commitment to National Geographic's internal values: being inclusive and respectful, curious and innovative, empowered and accountable, proactive, and team players.
