Employment Opportunities

Magic Beans is a locally-owned toy and baby gear retail company. The company is the brain child of a Boston-area husband and wife team invested in creating a hybrid toy/baby gear retail company with a competent, well-trained staff. Our goal is to provide our customers with a great shopping experience that is complimented by our quality products and exemplary customer service.

We are always looking for exceptional and motivated candidates. Having a great customer service ethic is imperative to joining our team. 

Open Positions:

BOUTIQUE SALES CONSULTANT (SALES ASSOCIATE) - ALL STORES

Working at Magic Beans allows you to become an expert in a relatively small industry, work directly with the brands you sell, have your voice heard, and build mastery in the surprisingly complex world of baby gear. You won’t just be an employee, you’ll be an authority on all things car seats, strollers, and more! There’s much more to Magic Beans than meets the eye, and we just may be exactly what you’re looking for.

We at Magic Beans are looking to grow our team of experienced, specialty retail consultants in both our Cambridge and Wellesley locations! At Magic Beans, employees can expect flexible scheduling, reasonable operating hours, (our brick and mortar storefronts close at 6:00pm at the latest), competitive wages, benefits, and a work environment which supports our staff and fosters their personal and professional growth and development.

Experience in specialty retail is highly recommended though not required. A Magic Beans retail team member will split the majority of their time either focusing on our extensive selection of toys, books, and educational items, OR consultation focused, appointment based interactions with expecting families and parents as they navigate the world of strollers, car seats, baby carriers and nursery furniture. Customer service proficiency is a must and a desire to maintain an upbeat, jovial disposition with our customer base in order to grow your clientele is a baseline expectation. Extensive training is provided and curiosity is key in the process of developing and supporting new hires as they transition to a fully gear-trained member of our team.
