Location: Naperville
Posted on: May 17, 2020

Job Description:

Love the details? Get deep satisfaction from a job well done? Love helping things run smoothly? Find delight in supporting the administrative needs of a team and providing excellent customer service? Obsessed with check lists and office organization?

The Operations Coordinator is the operational heart of each Galileo camp site. This leadership role sets the tone for service mentality and work ethic for every other camp staff member, and role models the flexibility required at camp-there is no job too big or too small. There is a lot of work, and an emergence of anticipated and unanticipated needs. Perfect for detail-oriented administrative masters.

ABOUT GALILEO

Galileo's mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. We know it's bold. We also know that we can't achieve it without asking staff to be role models of an innovator's mindset-visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective. It's not always easy. Camp staffers work hard. Very hard. You can expect days in which there's a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it. But part of what makes our culture great is that no one is too proud to complete any task that needs doing. Our camp staffers bring camp magic to life-for campers, and for themselves.

This isn't your average summer recreation gig. Galileans are expected to take ownership of their own performance and make this place better every day. People with a can-do attitude thrive here and those with a victim mentality don't. We manage to keep this level of performance expectation high in a relaxed environment; we take our work, not ourselves, seriously.

Being a Galilean means jumping into action to bring camp magic to life. Depending on the day, that could mean creating a gorgeous sign that highlights the Galileo Innovation Approach, donning a tutu for a skit, or playing a board game with two campers to build connection. Galileans know what it means to be a vital part of a team. Galileans want to grow. Galileans like to have fun at work. Galileans love sharing in-and helping to create-joyful experiences. After all, we run summer camps. You get the point.

WHAT YOU'LL GET

Purposeful work in a playful, supportive environment. Plus, you'll join a lifelong community that stands for innovation, credibility, and expertise. We're a certified B Corporation that is ranked #1 on the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area, were named one of Forbes' Best Small Companies and a Top 100 Impact Company, and are authentically committed to inclusion and equity company-wide-which includes joyfully upholding a robust financial assistance program.
