  • Overview

    We are working with an innovative, loving family in San Francisco seeking a warm, flexible and calm nanny to join their family and household team. The family is seeking both weekend nannies and full-time candidates who are local to the Bay Area. 

    These busy professionals appreciate a nanny who is ready to be part of the team and can bring their calm, loving, and flexible personality to the role. This opportunity to join a new nanny team in a fully-staffed home can be best described as informal, organized and efficient environment so a keen sense of teamwork and dedication to your role are key!


    The weekly schedule will be rotating. The families travel with some frequency so a desire and willingness to jet-set is also a key for the successful candidate. You will be working with other household staff to provide loving and dedicated care to infant-aged children. Compensation is $30-40/hr including a comprehensive benefits package.

    The ideal candidate will be familiar with the RIE philosophy and be able to demonstrate their extensive and recent infant care experience. Experience traveling as a nanny and working in a fully-staffed home would be appreciated, but not required. A calm, collaborative, and go-with-the-flow attitude is key!


    This position is open to all Adventure Nanny candidates who live in the Bay Area, are legally able to work in the US, and bring an enthusiasm for their career as a nanny to the table.

    To be considered for this position please submit to the position online. Should your profile and experience stand out as a match, we will in touch with next steps. Because of the highly competitive nature of this position, we cannot update each applicant to the status of their application. We appreciate your interest and energy!
