  • Overview

    An adventurous, loving family based in Palo Alto, CA is seeking a travel-ready, energetic, and flexible on-call and travel nanny/assistant who is excited and able to travel around the world!
    With two growing and curious children, aged 4.5 and 1.5 years old, this family enjoys embarking on adventures and spending time outdoors. They especially love to visit their roots in Thailand and instill a love for the world and other cultures in their children. Having the flexibility and availability to travel for long periods of time will be essential! They are hopeful to find a candidate who can be a safe, fun-filled nanny to their children while traveling, and who can pitch in with both childcare and assistant tasks while they’re at home. The family enjoys their community and is seeking a nanny who is welcoming and willing to extend their childcare on occasional date nights within their tight-knit family friends. 
    This is an on-call and travel nanny/assistant position. While home, the family is offering 24 guaranteed hours per week, which generally fall on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays. While traveling, the family is offering 12 guaranteed hours per day with accommodations provided. Their generous compensation and benefits package includes $30-$35/hour, with guaranteed annual earnings of $80,000 minimum (and potential to earn more), in addition to fully paid healthcare, dental, and vision coverage, 401k plan with 4% match, and a $10,000 relocation reimbursement. They hope to find the perfect candidate as soon as possible! 
    This position is open to all Adventure Nanny candidates who are legally able to work in the US and are local to California, possess a valid driver’s license and passport, and are able to travel for extended periods of time. This family will be prioritizing local candidates at this time. Out of respect for the privacy of the families we work with, we cannot provide any additional information about this position other than what has already been provided in the job description.
