Job Description *
Bike Friday (Bicycle Manufacturer) Service Department (Wrenching, Purchasing, Parts Order Picking)Ever dream of having a job building something environmentally benign that at the end of the day you can feel good about? We are an ambitious group of people trying to do our part to make the world a better place to live. Green Gear Cycling (Bike Friday) is an internationally recognized manufacturer of high performance folding bicycles for traveling and utilitarian/commuting use.While the position we are filling for is for a bicycle mechanic to work in our service department, the team member may be cross trained to work in the production line on occasion. This differentiates this position from a traditional bicycle shop service job as you get to participate in the fabrication of bicycles. Prior bicycle shop (service mechanic) experience while not required, is generally needed.

Qualities/ Skills required:

-Superior mechanical aptitude
-Strong bicycle mechanical / repair skills
-Positive, optimistic attitude
-Strong communication skills
-Desire to be held personally accountable
-Ambition
-Exceptional problem solving skills, both in person as well as on the phone with customers

This position will be some flexible mixture of wrenching, order picking, and perhaps some purchasing and light fabrication/ assembly. In essence, the ideal person would be floating around to the various needs Bike Friday may have within the Service Department.

What we offer is a challenging environment with supportive co-workers who will be interested in your success. If the position becomes permanent, benefits include profit sharing, 401K , health / dental/ vision insurance contributions, covered bike parking, shower facilities, discount on bike parts, paid holidays, shop privileges and family friendly. And, you get to build yourself a personal bike on the company’s dime.
