About the Company

Ruby's Garden is an independent children's boutique in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland. We hand-select the best-of in all categories to fit the taste of our local clientele so customers can shop with us without already knowing what they're going to get. We have grown steadily over twelve years by offering great product in a welcoming place. We will soon launch a webstore to make it even easier for customers to get what they need, how and when they need it. We demonstrate our commitment to local by supporting makers, merchants, schools and non-profits in our community and beyond. We are proud to contribute to the physical fabric of Telegraph Avenue and Oakland by being a place where locals gather and connect. 

Store Associate


We are looking for part-time associates who are excited about our mission and connect with our merchandise. While selling cute things and keeping the store looking great are very important, we primarily want someone who is personable, self-motivated and 110% committed to giving our customers an excellent store experience. 


The people who have been successful at this company are kind and hospitable, sharp and efficient, and keep cool under pressure. A basic proficiency with computers and alpha-numeric data are a must; a flexible schedule is a plus. You will need to handle and move merchandise. 


Please get to know us  by visiting our shop, checking out our website and Insta. If you like what you see, send your resume and a thoughtful email about why you'd make a great addition to the team at Ruby's Garden. Describe your availability including weekends and any special skills you'd like to contribute.
