Ted – Search Scientist Mascot

Ted has been with us from day one of Search Scientist, but led quite the life before then. Starting out as a lab technician, Ted always had a curiosity for science. His eyes wandered into the field of time travel, in which he invented his own machine! He traveled through time and saw that Online Marketing was the future. He sought out the best talent to team up with and continues to happily be part of the Search Scientist team.
