Cycles PHL in North Philly is hiring! We are a small (but mighty!) 3 year old service based bike shop adjacent to Temple University. We pride ourselves on the bright, friendly and comfortable space we have created to serve the bicycles and riders of North Philadelphia. 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, free repair days, film screenings, and more. Interest in organizing and running these events is a huge plus! With the size and pace of the space there isn’t much distinction between roles, so flexibility is key.

-Basic to advanced repairs on a diverse range of bikes, including walk-in services
-Refurbishing used bikes for sale in an efficient and cost effective way

-Is interested in community development and/or youth education
-Is comfortable working unsupervised in a fast paced environment
-Loves spending their off-days on the bike, either on the road or the trails
