Galileo is building the future of healthcare - today. Using innovative mobile technology and human-centered design, we’re looking to improve the quality and affordability of medical care for all—including those with Medicare and Medicaid. Our organization is founded by a successful entrepreneur (One Medical, Epocrates), led by a top-notch team, and well-funded from some of the best investors in the country. We seek curious, talented, team-oriented individuals with a diverse set of backgrounds who ultimately want to make a difference.
What You’ll Do
Reporting to our Field Operations Lead, Galileo’s Health Advocates are at the heart of our care teams, building trusting and supportive relationships with a group of patients to help them meet their goals. As a Health Advocate you are naturally empathetic and a good listener; you understand what’s going on in the lives of the patients you work with and you invest quality time with every patient getting to know them as a real person. Our Health Advocates continuously collaborate with our team of clinicians and social workers creating tailored care plans and then working closely with each patient, ensuring they are well supported and empowered. Specifically, you will:
- Be embedded within the community, spending more time in people’s homes and in their neighborhoods than in an office
- Leverage your local knowledge to find and implement creative solutions to address your patients’ health and social barriers
- Combine your natural people skills with helpful processes and tools, ensuring each patient is engaged and well-connected to resources
- Work alongside an interdisciplinary team of devoted clinicians and social workers
Who You Are
A successful Health Advocate is an intrinsic people person - you relate and connect well to others, delight in not only helping solve problems for people but creating lovely experiences. You are responsible, organized, and know the devil is in the details. You understand the importance to both the team and to patients of being reliable, prompt, and trustworthy. You have extensive knowledge of and ties to your local community- figuratively and literally speaking the language. You are up for a challenge and are excited about making a true difference in the lives of community members.
How We Hire
Galileo is committed to hiring the best talent from a range of backgrounds and experiences—including but not limited to—gender, ethnic, political, economic, religious, sexual orientation, and other personality traits.

We appreciate candidates who are open and honest about what they’re looking for so we can ensure it’s a fit on both sides.
