Job Description

Clever Cycles is seeking a skilled and thoughtful individual to fill a position in our service department. Hopefully you’ve already heard of us. If not, stop into the shop or poke around our website. Do you like what you see? Want more folks riding bikes everyday to do things that people do? Are you ok with kickstands? Are you intrigued by bikes that fold or have the ability to carry more than a rider? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then we’d like to talk.

We are seeking a mechanically-inclined individual to assemble bikes, perform repairs, answer phones and emails. Additionally, you will do glamorous things like sweeping, and taking out the trash. Ideally we are looking for someone to work 4-5 days a week, but are open to accepting applications from everyone. You will be rewarded with the smiles of happy people of all ages, the occasional drink after work or cookie during, easy working hours (weekend availability is a plus), competitive wage, sick pay and health insurance.

What you should have:
A strong work ethic
Thirst for knowledge
A drive to ask questions first
The ability to own up to mistakes, and learn from them
Love for people, bicycles and children
Love for order, detail and communication
Willingness to mechanic on electric and non-traditional bikes and trikes
Experience in a bike shop is a plus, but if you are a hard-working individual that can prove mechanical aptitude, then please apply. We’re also open to folks with retail experience looking to transition into the service department.

How to Apply

What we want from you (in person or via email):
A resume
A cover letter (tell us why we want you!)
Your availability and desired schedule
