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 sixth 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 team is up to the challenge. Across our Oakland HQ and satellite SoCal and Chicago offices, 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.

Headquarters Teams and Open Positions
It takes a stellar team of solution-oriented, out-of-the-box thinkers to keep 3 regions, over 50 camp locations, one warehouse and countless Go-Karts running smoothly. Galileo’s Operations team works cross-functionally to oversee data management, technology systems, process improvements, facilities, and day-to-day operations of our headquarters and camp locations.
Our dedicated Field Operations team expertly manages the complex jigsaw puzzle of details that go into elevating the camper experience to be truly memorable. From selecting exceptional Camp Directors to envisioning the next Camp Galileo or Galileo Summer Quest locations to coordinating facility operations, the Field Ops team are the dynamic project and people managers of over 50 camp locations in 3 major metropolitan areas.
Galileo’s Customer Service team acts as the voice of Galileo, introducing families to our groundbreaking programming and ultimately, the camp experience. The unique commitment to genuine customer engagement is what differentiates our Camp Support Specialists. Like the most attentive concierge, our experts deliver high-touch communication, guiding families towards a personalized experience suited to individual camper’s interests.
Galileo’s curriculum team are the torchbearers of our pedagogy. This inventive group of education professionals develops the dynamic material to capture campers’ attention and spark curiosity. Year-round, they create rich, riveting new subject matter that ultimately turns Galileo campers into fearless innovators.
The People Operations team is not your average (ahem, boring) Human Resources department. Everything about the way they approach their work — from the way they attract and select candidates to the quality of service and the benefits they offer to our employees — reflects the pride they take in (and fun they have) hiring and retaining exceptional HQ, Camp Director, and summer staff teams.
Professional Development & Training
The Professional Development and Training team creates thoughtful, personalized training designed to help our staff achieve their goals. Our meticulously crafted staff development programs offer abundant support and coaching to our teams. With this customized training plan, it’s easy to see why over 97% of our summer staff say they would recommend working for us.
Our Finance gurus are more than bookkeeping and accounts payable aces. They oversee the best financial forecasting to ensure successful camp seasons for the next generation of campers. As we grow, our finance team is committed to building outstanding relationships with their field and HQ teammates through providing support on modeling new program offerings to resource planning for expansion.
The Marketing team communicates Galileo’s mission to the world. With superior creative talent, Marketing collaborates with internal leaders and external creative partners to deliver consistent marketing concepts across digital, print, and event audiences. This team is dedicated to sharing how much brilliant innovation is in progress — and how much fun we’re having — at over 50 Galileo locations.
We think the world needs innovators. And innovators need tools to help them change the world. Our Warehouse team has got it covered. These masters of multitasking and organization successfully coordinate the purchasing, inventory management, and delivery of all camp materials. Imagine a place filled with glue sticks and googly eyes, pool noodles and paper mache. It’s behind-the-scenes magic in the making, all year long.
