Bike Mechanic

Company: 
Spokes Bicycle Rentals
Job Address: 
1798 West Georgia St
Vancouver, BC V6G 2V7
Job Type: 
Full Time
Job Status: 
Permanent
Job Description: 

WE ARE HIRING!

Spokes Bicycle Rentals is a large bicycle rental shop and has been around since 1938. We enhance the outdoor experience that is Stanley Park and Vancouver by bicycle through our commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service.

We are looking for: Bike Mechanic!

Summer is near and our shop is getting busy. We're looking for another bike mechanic to help spread the load.

We are looking for someone who has solid knowledge of all basic bicycle repairs, and good over-all mechanical sensibility. The bikes we have are fairly straight forward; you won't find hydraulic brakes or complicated suspension setups here, but we have hundreds of bikes and sometimes knowing how to set up and brand new derailleur won't be enough.

If you can stay calm in a busy environment, are polite and considerate to customers/coworkers, and know your way around a workshop… this might be the job for you!

Job Requirements

Qualifications: 

You will need:

  • A good strong understanding of bikes and how they work (some shop experience is definitely an asset)
  • Wheel and hub knowledge is a must!
  • Experience using hand tools of all kinds, and some powertools such as drills and grinders
  • General knowledge of Stanley Park and the surrounding area
  • To be tidy, and able to clean up after yourself without being asked
  • A good sense of humour
  • To be fit enough to lift bikes of various styles up and down and sometimes over your head
  • To be willing to lend a hand, if needed, wherever needed

We all chip in outside from time to time and dealing with people is part of that. We don't have room for ego here. We only have room for teamwork.

If you're interested in learning and being part of a fun team, we look forward to meeting you.

Salary: 
TBD
