Galileo is looking for a people driven and detail-oriented Office Coordinator to join our Oakland Headquarters team and to support our day-to-day office operations. The ideal candidate is an extremely organized and energetic self-starter who thrives on streamlining and executing a wide range of administrative tasks, while supporting the success of a team. This 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 tens of thousands of 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 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 Inclusion & Diversity, camper inclusion and broadening our impact. Learn more about our purpose from our CEO & Founder, Glen Tripp.
