Job Description
The Bike Commuter is looking for a customer service superstar to take charge as Store Manager.
We are a busy, growing neighborhood shop, and it is time to hire a manager to oversee daily operations of the store.

This position will include ALL duties necessary to keep the shop running smoothly. The bulk of the work will be mechanical, with an emphasis on professional, detail oriented service work on a variety of bicycles from kids bikes to full Di2 machines.
Daily tasks may include: service work, ordering, inventory receiving, service writing, store cleanup, bike building, warranty work, and most importantly, customer service.

The ideal candidate will have prior bike shop experience, be detail oriented, a fantastic communicator, and be willing to work under pressure with deadlines, enjoy burritos, and have a passion for all kinds of bicycles. Any candidate must take direction from, and work closely with the owners to keep the workflow progressing smoothly. We are willing to train the right person, but we would prefer a UBI gradute, or a certification from another training program.

We are a friendly shop, known for excellent customer service, so any candidate will need to make our customers an absolute priority.
We foster a non-judgemental environment, where all cyclists are treated with respect. No typical bike shop “snobbery” will be tolerated here!
