Job Description

Clever Cycles is seeking a personable, diligent, curious person to join our sales team, full-time. We hope you’ve already heard of us. If not, stop by or poke around our website. Want more folks riding bikes everyday to do things that people do? Are you ok with kickstands, steel, belt drives, e-bikes, and kid seats too? Are you intrigued by bikes that fold or have the ability to carry more than a rider? If so, let’s talk.

We are seeking a service-minded person to connect customers with the best bikes and accessories for them, in person, by phone and email. You’ll also help brainstorm and implement attractive merchandising and promotions. Ideally we are looking for someone to work 4-5 days a week, but accept 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 requirement), a competitive wage, sick pay, and health insurance.

What you should have:

• Love of people, including children, and bicycles
• A strong work ethic
• Thirst for knowledge
• A drive to ask questions first
• Ability to own up to mistakes, and learn from them
• Love of order, detail and communication

Experience in a bike shop is a plus, but if you are a hard worker and quick learner, please apply. Depth of experience and knowledge of shop specialties will affect compensation, but we will consider all proficiency levels if you exhibit excellent work habits, readiness to learn, customer service and communication skills.

How to Apply

Please send your resume with introductory note to, or drop by with a hardcopy.
