Staff Selection Specialist

Location
US-Remote

 

Galileo is looking for astute, service-minded Staff Selection Specialists to join our fast-paced People Operations team. These seasonal team-members are the first to greet our applicants—including reviewing resumes, and scheduling and conducting interviews—all while embodying a constant commitment to candidate care.

 

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 deeply accountable, performance-driven team-player. You take great pride in contributing your talents, leading to concrete success toward both team and individual goals. 

 

  • You can juggle—and juggle well. You can manage a variety of projects simultaneously. Incoming emails? Multiple stakeholders? Easy breezy. You manage your time well and keep your calendar in tip-top shape. 
  • You’re nimble and eager to grow. You’re excited to join a high-functioning team, and continuously seek feedback to learn and grow. 

 

  • You care about people and the relationships you build with them. You communicate clearly and effectively, while acting with a deep sense of empathy.

 

Who are we?

At Galileo, we believe the world needs innovators and that innovation can be taught. We also think kids who learn to explore and who are willing to tackle challenges despite their fears 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 educational programs to tens of thousands of kids each year online and in-person. Each of our employees takes personal responsibility for bringing our values to life and to make our company and culture better. Here, values aren’t just lip service — we aim to be visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective each day, and back that effort up with structure to ensure our success. People who joyfully work hard together, seek feedback to improve themselves, feel deeply accountable for their work, are mission driven, and play well with others tend to thrive in our culture. 


We’re a certified B Corp, were recently ranked #1 on the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area (and have been on the list for twelve plus years running), have been named one of Forbes’ Best Small Companies in America, and over 97% of our summer staff say they would recommend working for us. Joining Galileo means joining an organization that is a model of innovative learning, with a company-wide commitment to Inclusion and Diversity, broadening our impact and a stellar staff experience.



What’s the team like?

 

The People Operations team is not your average Human Resources department. You’ll be on a team that approaches everything—from the way we attract and select candidates to the quality of service and the benefits offered to our employees—in a way that reflects the pride we take in hiring and retaining exceptional staff teams.
