Testing 123. Stop looking at the website code :P

We’re hiring!

We are hiring for a half-time position that begins as soon as possible. We are looking for an experienced mechanic to hit the ground running. Shop experience or established mechanical training is a must. Applicants should be able to do service-writing and full tune-ups. Wage will be based on experience.

Advantages:

  • The shop is run as a worker’s collective, which provides a lot of freedom to make changes and implement ideas.
  • Accessibility, sustainability, and inclusiveness are more important to us than the financial bottom line.
  • Our do-it-yourself ethic means that our mechanics fulfill many different roles with co-workers, customers, and distributors.

Challenges:

  • The primary goal of the Bike Kitchen is to serve the community, so we don’t always function as a regular commercial bike shop. Patience and effective communication skills are a must!
  • Our diverse clientele encompasses recreational riders, avid commuters, and high-end road/mountain bike riders.

Qualifications:

  • strong mechanical skills
  • exceptional social skills
  • a commitment to teaching bike mechanics
  • demonstrated appreciation of, and commitment to, the values of the grassroots cycling movement, including environmental sustainability and social justice
  • the ability to work harmoniously and respectfully with a diverse range of people

We hope that you will continue to develop and learn as a mechanic in our shop, but this is not a training position.

Please email your application – including a cover letter, resume, and references – to info@thebikekitchen.com.
