Employment Opportunities at
San Francisco National Maritime Park Association

Since 1951 we have worked to bring maritime history to life. We do this both through our partnership with San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park and our stewardship of USS Pampanito, a World War II submarine museum and memorial. Together at both locations we inspire over 18,500 children and adults a year in daytime and overnight education programs, and over 250,000 visitors aboard the National Historic Landmark ships. Over 1,000,000 visitors a year view our ships from shore. Every day visitors and students learn history, science, technology, and leadership aboard the historic ships. The ships and their stories inspire in a way that replicas and simulations cannot.

We believe that our organizational success is dependent on the concerted efforts of people dedicated to maritime preservation and education. We depend on our team's good judgment, enthusiasm, creativity and professionalism to help us fulfill our mission to preserve and interpret our nation's maritime history for all generations.

The following are the values we, at the Association, have chosen to guide our actions and decisions and create a positive and productive work environment for our crew:

  • We work to bring the spirit and tradition of our seafaring heritage alive for the public.
  • We apply good business principles to advance dynamic programs and projects which preserve and proclaim maritime heritage.
  • We bring integrity, professionalism and dedication to all our endeavors.
  • Our courteous and prompt customer service enhances the visitor's experience.
  • Our "can-do" attitude allows us to take advantage of opportunities.
  • We respect the unique contributions of individual to the fulfillment of our mission.
  • We believe in creating opportunities for fun. For us, fun is both an incentive and a reward.
  • Our people are at their best when they enjoy what they do.
