Who are you?

You’re a creative visionary. You aren’t stuck on a single design style, but rather are able to embody each brand personality you come across in a way that captures their essence in new and inspiring ways—particularly in the digital space.

You’re multi-faceted and well-versed across multiple marketing mediums. From building and updating brand guidelines to HTML email to print brochure to video—you’re passionate about all things marketing, and have demonstrable success to show for it.

You’re incredibly organized, and a true servant leader. You do what’s needed when it’s needed, including everything from mentoring teammates to successfully managing outside vendors and agencies, building excitement and ensuring final deliverables are always spot-on, consistent, and exceed expectations.

You thrive in a fast-paced, highly collaborative environments. You have a deep sense of accountability, see it as a personal goal to crush deadlines, and love supporting a team’s overall success. Nothing gives you greater satisfaction than helping all stakeholders get the final deliverables they need ahead of schedule, in dazzling form and ready to go.

Who are we?

We think the world needs more 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.
