Field Operations Coordinator



Galileo is looking for an astute, service-minded coordinator to join our fast-paced Field Operations team. Our Field Operations Coordinators ensure that all gears on the team run smoothly, supporting the A-Z logistics of delivering exceptional camp programming to 30,000+ kids each summer. They’re organizational masters and can easily pivot from detailed systems management to providing thoughtful support.


We value divergent thinkers who bring various experiences and viewpoints to the table. 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 get deep satisfaction from supporting the vision of a team. You’re motivated by a feeling of personal accountability to provide excellent service to your colleagues. It’s part of your personal brand to be a quick, thorough, and friendly email responder and take ownership of anything on your plate.
  • Creating and maintaining tools and systems is your jam. Your natural inclination is to put things in order, and you recognize the impact a strong system can have on the whole team. The only thing you enjoy more is identifying and pursuing ways to improve existing tools and systems to provide even better service.
  • 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 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 masters of their own.


It takes a village to bring best-in-class educational programs to tens of thousands of kids each year. Our employees take personal responsibility for bringing our values to life and making 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’ve been recently ranked #1 on the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area (and have been on the list for twelve plus years running) and named one of Forbes’ Best Small Companies in America. 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
