Galileo is looking for a highly motivated, service-minded Administrative Assistant to join our Hayward Warehouse team. This crucial teammate will be integral to the administrative success of the purchasing sub-function, while also supporting general office management of warehouse.
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?
You’re 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’re a deeply accountable, service-minded powerhouse. You take great pride in leveraging your administrative talents to support others. It’s part of your personal brand to be a quick, thorough and friendly teammate, and take ownership over anything on your plate.
You can juggle—and juggle well. You can manage a variety of projects simultaneously. You manage your time well and are meticulous about the details.
You’re an organized problem solver. You love fine-tuning operational logistics, ensuring program efficiency, and learning new strategies for driving overall performance.
You’re a visionary collaborator. You can confidently contribute to a creative vision and have the team-oriented mindset to effectively work with others to realize it.
Who are we?
We think the world needs innovators. We also think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear—the essence of innovation—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, ever-evolving camp programs to over 30,000 campers each summer. At HQ, we believe that we are Galileo; through the work of each contributor and team, we bring our values to life, and constantly make our company and culture better. Because here, values aren’t just lip service — we aim to be more visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective each day, and back that effort up with structure to ensure our success. People who work hard, seek feedback to improve their work and themselves, feel deeply accountable for excellent work product, and play very, very well with others tend to thrive in our culture. Complainers don’t.
We like each other, we joyfully work hard together, and united by a shared dedication to our mission to create a world of fearless innovators, we encourage innovation in everything we do. We’re also a certified B Corp, and uphold a company-wide commitment to camper inclusion and broadening our impact. Learn more about our purpose from our CEO & Founder, Glen Tripp.
