Vice President, Marketing
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.
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 on the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the SF Business Times (and have been on the list for ten years running), have been named one of Forbes’ Best Small Companies in America, and over 97% of our summer staff say they would recommend working for us.
What’s the job, really?
You’ll envision, cultivate, and drive our nationwide marketing strategy. From developing and executing a nationwide annual marketing plan to creatively growing new camper acquisition tactics, you (and the team you lead) will be accountable for growing our business in new and existing markets.
You’ll deftly manage customer service and retention programs. You’ll bring special care and know-how to driving customer retention, providing stellar service, and growing existing loyalty programs. You see as much value in—and are as excited about— creatively retaining customers as you are building new business.
You’re an inherent (and proven!) brand-builder and storyteller. You’ll lead our strategy for brand positioning and messaging for all of Galileo Learning (LLC), including Camp Galileo (K-5th grades), and Galileo Summer Quest (5-8th grades).
You’ll consistently act, achieve and operate. Working from a results-oriented mindset, you’ll lead the continuous analysis of all marketing results, and provide ongoing recommendations for campaign optimization.
You’ll be a collaborative and invaluable company leader. You’ll also be a key member of the VP and executive leadership team, consulting on topics ranging from company-wide initiative to growth strategy. You’ll also contribute to decision-making on everything from camp program pricing and refund policies to recruitment brand positioning to shared field marketing event strategies.

-Bachelor’s degree required; MBA preferred
-Minimum 10 years experience leading B2C marketing; at least 5 years at Director level or higher, with experience managing high performing teams
-Experience marketing education (K-12) and/or kid-related marketing a plus
