Regional Director

Galileo Learning - Los Angeles, California - Full time

Our Regional Directors are passionate about working with kids and making an impact. They think innovation is important—so important that it’s at the cornerstone of how they lead, motivate, and inspire their staff. They are effective project managers, detail-oriented operations specialists, and visionary entrepreneurs. They care about our culture, our work, our development, and our community efforts. They embody our values of being visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined, and reflective. They are Galileo.

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.

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.

Core Requirements

  • 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.

Required Experience & Education

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience, advanced degree preferred
  • Experience in multi-site operational management, managing projects, programs, or services
  • Minimum 5 years experience working with K-8th grade range and managing people, ideally a team
  • Readiness to stick around: we find that our Regional Directors benefit from a 5 year minimum commitment

Essential Duties & Responsibilities

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.
