Job Title: Website Content Creator

Job Summary/Functions: The primary purpose of this position is to help populate the website with products we want to carry, maintain the categorical flow of the site, and promote expanding into new categories. This becomes a very detailed process as categories change over time, model years change, and we have multiple shipping locations. Daily functions will include not only working to put up new individual products, but to also asses the overall categorical organization.

Job Skills: The candidate for this position must be familiar with computers, the world wide web, and have at least 5 years experience in the cycling industry. Attention to detail is an absolute must. The candidate should have a total, overall, knowledge of the entire cycling industry, not just one aspect of it. Candidate should be familiar with distribution channels within the industry. As the job is based from a computer, the candidate must be able to work with minimum supervision and have strong time management skills.

Hours per week: 40 hrs. Full time job. 8 1/2 hour days, with a 1/2 hour lunch during the day. We would request a 2 year commitment, as there is quite a bit of training at first.

Salary: This job starts at 40k. After 6 months, as training is done, there is an increase to 45K. If the candidate can proceed, becoming more valuable with more skills, we will move them up to 50K from there. Slight cost of living increases are also provided as the years fluctuate. The compensation for this position has been designed for someone possessing the skills mentioned above.

Additional benefits: Health insurance (Kaiser, right now) and 2 weeks vacation time.

Opportunities for growth: There are plenty of opportunities over time for growth. Eventually, we will have an entire staff devoted to Website administration. We will need to expand into other categories in the cycling industry, and even other industries over time.

How to Apply: Please send resume to mike(at)universalcycles(dot)com
