Community Bike Shop Manager

Do you love bicycles – and helping people? Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop seeks a qualified and enthusiastic part-time bike shop manager. We are a hub for all things bike-related in Everett, WA, and seek someone who wants to be the center of that wheel.

The shop manager will oversee daily shop operations and finances, ensure outstanding customer service, manage and develop staff (1-2) and volunteers, coordinate annual kids bike programs, and work with the Board of Directors to promote our shop’s development and growth.

Your day will include fixing bicycles, helping volunteers and visitors fix bikes, selling used bikes and parts, and assessing repairs and donations. See the full job description here.

Sharing Wheels is an established nonprofit with a mission to “connect unused bikes to people who need wheels.”

Hours: The job is currently part-time, starting at 20 hours a week, including the need for weekend and evening availability. The exact schedule may be negotiable. The job is expected to grow with the right candidate.

Pay starts at $15 an hour, and may be increased based on experience.

Apply by emailing your resume, cover letter, and contact information for three references to Board President Brice Howard,c/o sharingwheels@gmail.com. Your cover letter should describe how you meet the qualifications in the job description.

Position open until filled. Next review of resumes will take place Aug. 15. We hope to have someone start soon to allow for a training period with our longtime volunteer shop manager.

Volunteer Work Parties on Third Thursdays

Have you wondered how to get started as a volunteer at Sharing Wheels? Have you taken a class or helped with kids bikes, and want to keep practicing what you learned? Are you a past Sharing Wheels volunteer, and ready to re-engage?

Come to the shop on the third Thursday of each month for a volunteer orientation and work party. We’ll pair up new and experienced volunteers, and put you to work – fixing bikes, organizing, cleaning – wherever your skills and our needs meet.

Work parties are from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop, 2531 Broadway, Everett. Our entrance and parking are at the back of the Broadway Mall building.

Upcoming work parties: 6:30 to 9 p.m. Sept. 15, Oct. 20, Nov. 17.

Speaking of volunteers, we need a volunteer snack provider for each work party. Let us know if you like to bake cookies or buy salsa!
