Keeping our customers safely on the road requires a group of qualified service staff: mechanics who value quality work, and take their craft seriously. We’re currently hiring any and all levels of bike mechanic, but of urgent need is a mechanic who can start with simple jobs like bike assembly, flat tires, and accessory installation.
Our mechanics are a diverse bunch who, in turn, service the most diverse array of bikes in the country. One day, you’re working on a highly proprietary Brompton folding bike; the next, running diagnostics on a Bosch electric assist motor; the next, tuning the steering mechanism of a Dutch cargo bike—all while fixing a bunch of standard bikes in between. You'll also be fixing lots of flat tires, assembling new bikes, and installing accessories. Of course, this all depends on your skill level.
First and foremost, we require someone with experience. That could mean prior experience at a bike shop, or working at local co-ops like Bike Pirates or Bike Chain. Second, we require someone with strong diagnostic skills: in other words, someone who knows when it's best to fix or replace a part. Also, you have to know when to ask for help (humility is most definitely a virtue). Finally, we require serious efficiency from our mechanics. We can work to develop your speed through a process-approach to bike repair, but you need to have the smarts, the skills, and most of all, the disposition. If this sounds like you, please apply!
