GENERAL SHOP ASSISTANT
TI CYCLES FABRICATION
In addition to building custom frames, forks, racks and components in titanium and steel, Ti Cycles Fabrication provides prototype development, fixture manufacturing, design consulting and general custom fabrication, welding, and repair. While our primary focus will always be working on cycling products we also do fabrication work for motorsports, watercraft, aircraft, breweries, et cetera. Ti Cycles also designs and imports production titanium frames and components for sale under the Ti Cycles and Ren Cycles names.
We have an immediate opening for a general shop assistant.
Duties will include but are not limited to:
:: Frame QC and finish machining
:: Frame finishing
:: Prep/cleanup for frame repairs
:: Bike assemblies
:: Inventory control
:: Freight/Shipping + Receiving
:: Online order fulfillment
:: Brazing experience a plus.
:: Lathe/Mill machining experience is a plus.
:: Painting experience is a huge plus.
:: Experience with top tier bicycle components such as Shimano Di2, Campagnolo EPS, Rohloff, Gates Carbon Drive, and E-assist systems such as EcoSpeed, BionX, SunStar and the like preferred.
While experience with the aforementioned duties are not required, the ability to learn, self-direct, and independently problem solve are a must, as are personal integrity and reliability. Knowing a few good jokes and having a healthy sense of humor will go a long way as well.
Shop address is 15707 NW McNamee Road PDX 97231 — please Google Map the address before considering the position.
Work would be on an ongoing contract basis, with hourly compensation depending on relevant skills and experience. 30-40 hours per week with flexible schedule available.
While this position will touch on nearly every area of bicycle manufacturing and sales it is not a framebuilding apprenticeship. We conduct regular framebuilding classes for instructional purposes.
