Galileo is looking for a Director of Staffing who is a talent acquisition mastermind and operations expert to join our People Operations team. This warm, and experienced people manager will establish and execute hiring processes for our headquarters positions as well as thousands of seasonal jobs we fill every summer. As a key member of our People Operations team, this role will keep our hiring processes market-relevant through research and development, while inspiring and mentoring a team of recruiting specialists.
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?
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?
This position will be reporting to the Vice President of People. 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.
What’s the job, really?
We’re looking for a people-focused, process whiz dedicated to crafting and executing swift, equitable hiring processes that support Galileo’s growth and that maintain all candidates as fans. Our Director of Staffing will oversee hiring execution - from application to interview to offer - ensuring impeccable service to our candidates and hiring managers. Essential responsibilities include overseeing hiring processes for all of our applicant streams, supporting recruiting specialists in execution, and executing executive level searches.
What are we looking for?
Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the requirements, women and other underrepresented people tend to only apply when they match every criteria. If you think you have what it takes, but don't necessarily meet every check box in this job description, we encourage you to still apply. We'd like to learn more about you and see if you could be a great fit for Galileo.
These requirements are representative of those that must be met by an employee to successfully perform the essential functions of this job, with or without reasonable accommodation:

Whether you require a reasonable accommodation or exemption will not impact consideration of your candidacy.
