Key Holder/Sales Associate
The Nookie's a sensuality shop with a mission to foster human connection.
We were founded in 2017 by a social psychologist and former healthcare executive who believes that sexual pleasure is an essential - and often misunderstood - aspect of wellness. We’re seeking a Key Holder/Sales Associate to oversee daily operations in our innovative, socially progressive, rapidly growing environment. This position offers opportunities for development, competitive compensation, performance-based raises, generous merchandise discounts, and free product samples.
Join us as we work to change the stigma around sexuality. By serving our community in an educational and elegant environment, you’ll do more than just sell products – you’ll help people change their lives.
