Job Description

While most people know us best for the beloved little red wagon, Radio Flyer is always dreaming up FUNomenal new ways to deliver joy to families by introducing new products every year.

From go-karts and scooters to kids’ bikes and the Lithium-Ion Tesla Model S for Kids, our Chicago-based team innovates in every product category we enter and we are looking for talented individuals to join our award-winning team! 

For over a century, Radio Flyer has served as the first set of wheels for generations of kids.

Now, with over a billion Radio Flyer wheels on the road, we have introduced our biggest innovation for all the kids at heart - Flyer is a line of electric bikes and scooters, our first ever product line created for adult riders.

Radio Flyer has consistently been recognized as a top workplace nationally and locally. Our team has received numerous awards over the years including Fortune’s Best Small & Medium Workplaces, Chicago Innovation Awards, People Magazine’s Companies that Care, the Daily Herald’s Best Places to Work in Illinois, and Vault Top 50 Intern Programs nationwide. Robert Pasin, Chief Wagon Officer and grandson of company founder Antonio Pasin, was recently recognized as a Top CEO of 2021 on Glassdoor. Radio Flyer is also proud to have been named a top workplace for women, minorities, and LGBTQ+ community members over the years by Crain’s, Daily Herald and Vault.                             

At Radio Flyer, we welcome and appreciate all backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives — encouraging everyone to bring their authentic selves to work.
