Jobs at HQ
Climb Aboard the Mothership
Galileo HQ is a great place to work. But don’t take our word for it—Galileo was recently ranked one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the SF Business Times for the fifth year running and was named one of Inc. Magazine's 50 Best Companies to Work For.
Our business is summer camp, but don’t let that fool you: we’re an ever-growing company at the forefront of innovation education (with a very healthy business model). Our team is dedicated, hard working and a whole lot of fun to be part of, especially if you agree that camp games and projects aren’t just for summertime…or just for kids.
It takes a village to bring fresh, inspiring, ever-evolving camp programs to over 20,000 campers every summer, and our Oakland-based team is up to the challenge. We believe that WE are Galileo. United by a shared dedication to our mission to create a world of fearless innovators, we encourage innovation in everything we do, whether writing cutting-edge curriculum, staffing exceptional summer teams, purchasing and packing supplies, spreading the word about our camps or delivering top-notch customer service.
We post year-round positions as they become available, and each fall begin the hiring process for seasonal roles (January – June/August) on our People Operations, Customer Service and Warehouse teams.
