First of all, we are a toy company so working here should be fun. We know that for some of you who worked for other toy companies out there this will come as a shocker but we strongly believe that:"If you have fun making it, they'll have fun playing with it". Fun, however, does not mean it is easy or for everyone. We are picky and hire more for attitude than for skills. So if you have a fancy resume and a bad personality, move along.
Here is what we look for in a candidate. If this describes you, we want to talk to you!

Working at Macmillan Toys
Macmillan Toys loves CLEVER... We'll be honest, what we are doing is not easy. No one's job is a piece of cake. After all, if it were easy everyone would be changing the world. We look for people who thrive in the kind of fast and chaotic environments that can produce real step-changes in thinking. Clever is more than just intelligent: It's about finding solutions, not just discovering problems. You will be asked to do tasks that aren't part of your existing skill set, focus on things that may be out of your comfort zone. Whatever the challenge everyone here at Macmillan Toys pulls together to create something great.
Macmillan Toys loves CREATIVE...
We don't have the luxury of endless time and resource. We move quickly, and cost-effectively. We need you to be creative, and scrappy: quickly find things that work and then build successfully on them. And we need you to have great taste!.
Macmillan Toys loves NICE... Teamwork and good relationship are a critical part of our success. If you can't act with integrity, you won't be able to help us all reach our goals. We do not tolerate office politics of any sort and if you have a history of not getting along with your colleagues, no matter how smart you think you are, we are not the place for you. We have a zero jerk policy so kick butt but play nice.
Macmillan Toys loves PASSIONATE... We love what we do.We want you to be excited to come to work every day, even if it is a gorgeous Southern California sunny day. We want you to dream up new ideas and help us change the world, one toy at a time. A passionate team will create products that customers will adore.
Macmillan Toys loves FRUGAL...
Let's face it, we all have seen "big" companies waste money, time and resources. We don't. If you are used to spending a lot of OPM (Other People's Money) then we are not the right place for you. But if you thrive on the challenge of stretching a dollar and using your brain instead of just your wallet, you are our kind of people.
