Joe Bike

Job Description *
1. Custom Build Shinobi: Help people build their dream bike. End-to-end, one-on-one consulting, quote building, assembly, and follow-up. Mostly high-end touring or urban but some cyclocross and other off-road bikes. Lots of independence if desired, including the possibility of off-site and/or off-hours work.

We’re open to a wide range of mechanical experience levels, but strong wheelbuilding experience and detailed knowledge of the kinds of bikes we specialize in will be useful.

In exchange you’ll need to be responsible, personable, communicative, well organized, and well motivated. You must write and speak well.
Most communication with customers is via email.

Compensation is commensurate with the responsibility and with your qualifications. Benefits include good subsidized health insurance, paid sick days, and other good stuff to be unveiled soon.

2. Seasonal mechanic. We’re looking for a part- to full-time mechanic for now through September, with the possibility of extension. We’re open to a wide range of experience levels, but UBI certification and/or bike shop experience are strongly preferred.

How to Apply *
Please email and give it your best shot.

For the seasonal mechanic position, you can alternatively stop by during less-busy hours and be prepared for an on-the-spot interview.
