Job Description
SprocketFly’s mission is to provide fast, convenient, and exceptional service to bike riders all over town. As a SprocketFly Mobile Bike Tech, you’ll ensure Portlanders are safe on their wheels and are bowled over by your professionalism and outward friendliness.

You’ll be part of an upstart team of independent but affiliated can-do bike enthusiasts, and you’ll get wholesale access to repair parts and accessories. Many of our events are at offices and organizations around town, but we’re branching out more to servicing individuals where they live. Key benefits to you include independence/autonomy, schedule flexibility, and very competitive revenue share. We pay you directly to your bank account, and no cash changes hands at the point of service outside of tips.

-Be a great teammate at workplace events with other mechanics
-Provide Tune-ups, repairs, overhauls and installs
-Maintain and take stock of a shared pool of tools and supplies
-Be friendly
-Be prompt
-Be yourself

Strong candidates will:
-Be easily reachable through phone
-Be able to get around town efficiently with repair tools and supplies
-Reliably respond to emails
-Have a passion for the people who ride bikes as much as their equipment
-Be UBI certified
-Have retail and/or bike mechanic experience
-Have strong communications skills
-Be able to work well alone and with others
