This is a very fast paced work environment where the ability to juggle tasks while staying cool, calm and collected is very important. Outside of the daily operations, we host and attend a number of community programs including youth and adult workshops, beginner bike camping trips, free repair days, film screenings, and more. Interest in organizing and running these events is a huge plus!

This is a part time position of up to 25 hours per week including some Saturdays, but there is the possibility for full time employment with time split between Cycles PHL and our other location, Germantown Bicycle Supply, which will be opening in the coming months.
Pay is competitive but dependent on experience.
