People Operations Specialist

Galileo Learning

About the organization

Founded in 2002, Galileo operates summer day camp programs at 70+ locations throughout the Bay Area, SoCal, and Chicago. Our mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world, and we reach this mission through employment of our unique pedagogy, the Galileo Innovation Approach.

We’re ranked #1 for Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the SF Business Times (and been on the list for ten consecutive years!), and were named one of Forbes’ Best Small Companies. Being a Galileo Camp Director means joining an organization that is a model of innovative learning, with a company-wide commitment to inclusion and broadening our impact.

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.


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 Operations Specialist who not only enjoys delivering exceptional candidate or customer care, but also relishes managing logistical details in support of the success of a team.

‌• You’ll coordinate the logistics of the candidate interview process, including day-to-day management of the interview schedule, materials preparation for hiring managers, and more.

‌• You’ll keep the gears of our well-oiled hiring machine turning. You’ll deftly track all communication with thousands of summer staff candidates in our applicant tracking system, from pre-application inquiries to post-interview references.

‌• You’ll be the first voice of Galileo to hundreds of candidates. High volume customer care is the name of the game here. You’ll skillfully and warmly deliver guidance and service to candidates via email and phone.


What are we looking for?

‌• Bachelor's degree preferred, but not required

‌• 1-2 years experience in an administrative role preferred

‌• Demonstrated experience with the Microsoft Suite and Google products, as well as the ability to pick up new systems quickly (like our applicant tracking system)

‌• Excellent time management skills, and the ability to engage professionally and enthusiastically with applicants and internal clients via phone and email

‌• Experience working with children or in an educational organization helpful, but not required

‌• Skill and experience with soliciting and implementing feedback to improve performance
