About us

Created by visionaries who embodied an era of exploration, discovery, invention, and change, National Geographic is now the world's largest nonprofit scientific and educational institution. The organization is guided by a growing awareness of the critical need to protect the planet's natural resources, and the realization that young people must better understand the world if they are to become its future leaders.

National Geographic's headquarters is located in the heart of Washington, D.C. In addition to a unique and dynamic work environment, National Geographic offers its employees a comprehensive benefits package, including health care and dental benefits, generous vacation and leave time, a 401(k) plan, flexible work options, and a tuition-assistance program.

A career opportunity at National Geographic is an opportunity to become part of the organization's rich history and culture and to have a chance to learn from, work with, and grow professionally among people who are leaders in their fields
