Sales & Marketing Coordinator

Mr. Rogers once said: “Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.” At Thames & Kosmos, we 100% agree!

For the past 20 years, we have dedicated ourselves to providing toys and games that are both fun and educational. We believe that authentic learning experiences combined with hands-on exploration are a powerful way to engage curious young minds, and to keep them hungry for knowledge as they continue their journey into adulthood. Whether it’s building a robot, playing a board game, or performing a magic trick, we hope our products empower kids to take risks, experiment, innovate, cooperate, problem-solve, and sometimes even fail.

The Sales & Marketing team at Thames & Kosmos is responsible for connecting the decision-makers in both retail and consumer communities to our story about who we are, what we do, and why it’s important. A position on this team requires a unique mix of creativity and administrative skills, as well as a true passion for our mission and product.

If you’re looking for a career that will challenge you to grow, make a difference in the lives of young people, and recognize your contributions as a valued member of our team, then please read on!
