Galileo is looking for a people-focused, detail-oriented administrative assistant to join our Southern California team. This extremely organized and energetic self-starter will thrive on our team—both streamlining and executing a wide range of administrative tasks. This role is a rare opportunity for anyone who values working in a strong, collaborative environment and wants to learn from and work closely with the leaders of award-winning Galileo programs.
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?
Who are we?
We think the world needs 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. 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.
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.
What’s the job, really?
You’ll support the work of our Territory Director team. Although you’ll work directly with our VP in Southern California, you’ll support the nationwide team. You will manage calendars, schedule and coordinate meetings, book travel, manage email, print/collate/scan/file documents, participate in team meetings (take notes, drive action items, set up technology), complete expense reports and submit invoices, and provide all kinds of other administrative support as needed and directed. You might do research, take on special projects, review data and prepare analysis, and run an errand or two here and there, all the while helping your team shine.
