Climb aboard the mother ship
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 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 15,000 campers every summer, and our Oakland-based team is up to the challenge. United by a shared dedication to our mission of creating 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.
Customer Service Specialist
In addition to responding to customer phone calls and emails with enthusiasm and professionalism, Customer Service Specialists assist with Galileo’s financial assistance program, reviewing applications and awarding financial assistance to over 1,500 campers. If keeping accurate track of details, working with software and technology, and being part of a close-knit team sound enjoyable, then this might be the fit for you. This is a temporary position, beginning in December and running through July or August of 2015.
Responsible for screening thousands of applications, bringing camp to life through phone interviews with hundreds of candidates, and passing the best of the best along to the final stages of our hiring process, Interview Specialists need a keen understanding of people and a warm, friendly phone presence. This is a temporary position, beginning in January and running through June of 2015, with the possibility of extending through July or August.
A talented team of Area Directors is at the core of Galileo’s success. Each Area Director manages four to eight of Galileo’s K-8th grade summer camps, and collectively, the Area Director Team drives the overall direction of Galileo’s programs. This is a full-time, year-round role based at our Oakland headquarters.
