Travel-Ready, Educational Nanny Needed For Outdoorsy Bay Area Family



A loving, on-the-go family based in San Francisco is embarking on a year of travel with their 3 and 1-year-old children, and are seeking a reliable, kind, and adventure-ready nanny to join them!


Based in San Francisco proper, this adventurous family is planning for an exciting year of travel! Over the next year they plan on spending months at a time in the Bay Area, Hawaii and beyond. Their 3-year-old is highly verbal with a sense of humor and attends school part-time while their nearly 1-year-old is just coming into his jolly personality. They are hopeful to find a safety-conscious, fun-loving, and proactive nanny with a genuine love for working with children to join their team.


This position is ideal for a candidate who is ready for a year of adventure, has a go-with-the-flow attitude, and is educationally-minded. The family is excited to find a nanny who will be 100% engaged with their children throughout the day, supplementing their education with enriching activities, and being a supportive rock for both the kids and the family as a whole. A candidate with a love for travel and the outdoors will feel right at home in this role (a passion for skiing, swimming, and/or surfing will come in handy)! The family’s household team includes a housekeeper, family assistant and an all-hands on deck attitude including pitching in with light tidying and child-related household duties will be valued and appreciated. This truly wonderful career opportunity will be perfect for a candidate who is ready to be engaged, proactive, organized, and collaborative when working with this family and staff.


This is a full-time, live-in position with a schedule of 40-50 hours per week. The general schedule will fall on Mondays through Fridays between 8am to 6pm, with flexibility for extended travel required. The family is offering $38-42+/hour with frequent opportunities for overtime and travel, in addition to health, dental, and vision insurance, and PTO. Driving will be required for this role and a vehicle will be provided while on duty. The position will begin as soon as they find the perfect fit, and the family is hopeful for a 1-year contract with the potential to extend.

Candidates with an Associate’s degree or higher will be prioritized. This family is happy to consider relocation candidates for this position.
