About the organization
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.
As a Regional Director on the Galileo Field Operations team, you’ll manage a region of 3-8 camp locations, impacting hundreds of children and staff members in each community.
• You will contribute to the development of Galileo programs and to our organization as a whole.
• You’ll brilliantly build and maintain relationships with host school partners.
• You’ll hit your numbers. You’ll skillfully confirm and drive camper enrollment, revenue, and profit goals for your sites based on history, community demographics, and cost structure.
• You’ll hire, train, collaborate with and develop a team of 3-8 site directors.
• You’ll liaise cross-functionally, ensuring the success of your region. You’ll work closely with cross-company stakeholders on projects ranging from creating and executing effective grassroots marketing campaigns to assisting with recruiting outreach and analyzing staff hiring performance.
• You live and breathe the Galileo mission. You believe in innovation. You believe that when kids are fearless, they learn and care more deeply. You believe that these fearless innovators will go on to change the world.
• You’re a leader — a servant leader — at heart. You believe that the best managers are ones who serve and support their teams, and you measure your success in large part by the success of those around you.
• You have an extensive hat collection. You wear many of them. You operate with an all-hands-on-deck mentality and understand that there’s no task too small, especially when your impact is so big.
• You’re an adept time manager. Juggling isn’t just a party trick—it’s your specialty. You know when to switch gears from detail management to supportive mentorship.
• You’re a glass-half-full hard worker. You’re committed to quality and are prepared to put in long hours when necessary. You take ownership over your own performance and strive to make Galileo—and yourself—better every day.
