Working at Galileo


Our business is summer camp, but don’t let that fool you: we’re an ever-growing company at the forefront of innovation education (with a very healthy business model) all driven by our mission of creating fearless innovators. Our team is dedicated, hard working and a whole lot of fun to be part of, especially if you agree that camp games and projects aren’t just for summertime…or just for kids.



At HQ, we consider ourselves the champions of Galileo’s audacious mission, and the torchbearers of our values and culture. Modeled after the Innovation Approach that comes to life in our classrooms during the summer, our values form the backbone of all we do.



At Galileo, we believe that leadership can come from anywhere within the organization. We reward success, and put systems in place to help you achieve it. Regular goal setting and evaluation, incredible manager support, and regular touch points to share and receive feedback all add up to a transparent and supportive environment. We also promote a team and family spirit that fosters high-functioning teams and depth of value in our colleagues.

We like having a good time at work, so there’s always something exciting happening— themed potlucks, songs and games, or crazy celebrations! It’s all just another day at HQ. Don’t think of yourself as the singing, dancing, costume-wearing type? That’s okay! We know (and love) that our special brand of “campy” takes all kinds! As a courageous and collaborative member of our team, you’ll be inspired to put your own unique spin on Galileo culture, in the ways that feel most authentic to you.


We’re a fun group, a smart group, and a diverse group. We’ve got artists and tinkerers, Ivy League and art school grads, bibliophiles and mountain bikers, and a shared love of the work we do.

Our year-round HQ team is split between our Oakland office, Hayward Warehouse, and satellite SoCal and Chicago offices. We post year-round positions as they become available, though we tend to do the most hiring in the early to late fall. In addition to our year-round team, each fall we hire seasonal team members (January – June/August) on our People Operations, Customer Service and Warehouse teams, bringing our HQ team up to about 70 (plus 50+ amazing Camp Directors, who work with us from January-August each year). Sound like a perfect fit?
