Online Application

Based on your application, we’ll consider which locations and open positions fit your preferences, skills and interests.

What to expect and prepare:

  • Get familiar with our audacious mission.
  • Have your resume ready to upload as a Word, PDF, or Dropbox document.
  • Set aside 10-15 minutes to complete the online application in one sitting.
  • You’ll hear from one of our Selection Specialists within 2 to 5 business days about our decision and next steps. Until that point, you’re welcome to contact of 510.595.7293 x2 if you have questions.

Face-to-Face Interview

Meet a Galileo Camp Director, get a taste of Galileo culture and the camp day, and finalize the exact position, location and team that is right for you (which in some cases means supporting multiple teams and locations!).

What to expect and prepare:

  • Depending on schedules, either attend an in-person group interview or a video group interview.
  • In group interviews, several candidates and Galileo team members come together to simulate a camp team experience. It’s likely you’re there with your future teammates, rather than competitors. You’ll participate in small group activities — including leading your own camp activity (and gleefully participate in activities led by others) — and having a one-on-one interview with a Galileo Camp Director.
  • Within two weeks, you’ll receive a final decision and next steps.
