We value divergent thinkers who bring various experiences and viewpoints to the table at Galileo. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented groups and people of diverse backgrounds to apply.
Who are you?
- You are intrigued or inspired by Galileo’s mission and purpose. Innovation education, project-based learning, and working in a professional, welcoming, deeply camp-inspired environment should sound like things you’re ready to explore or sign up for.
- You’re a creative, experienced marketer and program manager. The depth and breadth of your experience speaks volumes. You’ve led multiple marketing programs, and joyfully maintain current knowledge of marketing automation, demand generation programs, and integrated marketing best practices across all channels (digital, social, mobile, and traditional programs).

- You care deeply, and are a servant leader. You measure your success in part by the success of teammates, and by how well you’ve supported cross-functional stakeholders and business partners. You view your working relationships as an ecosystem, and feel excited to serve those who rely on you. You help people grow both personally and professionally, and believe the role of a manager is to lift up—and inspire greatness in—those they supervise and support.
- You thrive in a fast-paced, highly collaborative environments. You see it as a personal goal to crush deadlines, and love supporting a team’s overall success. From supporting website maintenance or copywriting to developing presentations, nothing gives you greater satisfaction than helping all stakeholders get what they need, on-time or ahead of schedule.
Who are we?
We think the world needs more innovators. We also think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear—the essence of innovation—are happier, more creative and more confident when faced with life’s challenges. And we think kids with these skills are more likely to change our world and be the masters of their own.
It takes a village to bring best-in-class, ever-evolving camp programs to over 30,000 campers each summer. At HQ, we believe that we are Galileo; through the work of each contributor and team, we bring our values to life, and constantly make our company and culture better. Because here, values aren’t just lip service — we aim to be more visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective each day, and back that effort up with structure to ensure our success. People who work hard, seek feedback to improve their work and themselves, feel deeply accountable for excellent work product, and play very, very well with others tend to thrive in our culture. Complainers don’t.
We like each other, we joyfully work hard together, and united by a shared dedication to our mission to create a world of fearless innovators, we encourage innovation in everything we do. We’re also a certified B Corp, and uphold a company-wide commitment to camper inclusion and broadening our impact. Learn more about our purpose from our CEO & Founder, Glen Tripp.
