Galileo is looking for an experienced, performance-driven People Services Manager to join our People Operations team, and be our in-house ADP system expert and reporting specialist. This stellar project manager will play an integral role in ensuring all Galileo employees are paid on time and accurately, as well as play an integral role in ensuring all Galileo employees are held and paid in accordance with all existing labor laws.
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 masters of their own.
It takes a village to bring best-in-class educational programs to tens of thousands of kids each year. 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’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 have been 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.
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.
What’s the job, really?
We’re looking for a People Services Manager to manage the payroll duties for over 2,000 summer staff, as well as our year-round and seasonal staff teams. This payroll dynamo will be a deft executor and detail-oriented leader who thrives on team management and executing administrative tasks in a fast-paced environment.
What are we looking for?

Bay Area preferred (Galileo Headquarters, 1021 Third Street, Oakland, CA 94607). We are able to employ remote candidates who are based in the following states: Washington, California, Colorado, Illinois, Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland.
