People Services Coordinator



As a year-round People Services Coordinator you will play an integral role in ensuring all Galileo employees are well-taken care of through smooth onboarding and offboarding, a top-notch benefits program, and timely and accurate pay.


Who are you?


  • You’re inspired by Galileo’s mission and purpose. Innovation education, project-based learning, and working in a professional, welcoming, deeply camp-inspired culture should sound like things you’re ready to explore.


  • You can juggle—and juggle well. You can manage a variety of projects simultaneously. Changing deadlines? Multiple stakeholders? Easy breezy. You manage your time well and are meticulous about the details.


  • You make it possible for others to do their jobs exceedingly well. You’re a critical thinker and a servant leader who’s continually looking for the best way to reach a goal, and nothing brings you more joy than setting others (and yourself) up for success. “Yes, and . . . ” is your mantra.


  • You’re deeply accountable and determined to get the job done right—always. There’s a big difference between delivering and delivering excellence. You live and breathe that difference, and see it as your place to bring it to fruition. You meticulously leave everything you touch better than you found it.


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. 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.

Position Description


What’s the team like?


The People Operations team is not your average Human Resources department.

What’s the job?


We’re looking for a People Services Coordinator to deliver internal support for over 2,000 summer staff, as well as our year-round and seasonal staff teams.

  • You’ll make sure our employees are paid accurately and on time. You’ll execute weekly tasks to process payroll for HQ staff and ~2,000 summer staff. You’ll build on existing team experience to identify and implement year-over-year improvements to our processes and resources.


  • You’ll support employee benefits administration, including enrollments, reporting, and payroll deductions for all HQ employees.


  • You’ll skillfully deliver employee program-related communication through our ticketing system (up to 1,000 tickets per month during the summer), maintaining a high level of approachability, warmth, accountability, demonstration of service, and team leadership. 


  • You’ll meticulously maintain current employee records in our payroll software, applicant tracking and onboarding platform, and internal tracking docs, taking a variety of actions at all employee transition points including hire, rehire, and role changes.


What are we looking for?


  • College graduate, or equivalent experience


  • 1-2 years’ experience in Human Resources, benefits, onboarding or payroll administration, preferred, but not required


  • Experience in project management, managing work plans and interfacing with multiple teams


  • Demonstrated experience with Excel and Google docs, and ability to quickly pick up new software and technology


  • Warm, welcoming, and professional attitude and disposition, with excellent written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills


We welcome your application, even if you don't feel like you meet all of the requirements listed above.




  • Virtual, part-time training: February 16th - 26th 


  • Full-time schedule begins March 8th, with 45-55 hours/week during summer 


Compensation & Benefits 


  • $22.00/hour


  • Employee medical and dental benefits provided by Galileo; employee-paid dependent care and multiple ancillary benefits available


  • 401(k) provided after one year of employment
