MPLS, Minnesota Bicycle Shop and Coffee Bar Seeks a Stellar New Teammate
We are a small collective of passionate bicycle nerds with a penchant for awesome coffee and we are looking to add one more to the team. Our ideal match would be someone that is stoked on bicycles and the lifestyle that is riding bicycles; whether it through the mountains, down long gravel country roads, across continents, or just to and fro your favorite food stop or watering hole. We believe that bicycles are transportation, recreation, and fitness tools that can change how we view and experience the world around us. If these things emulate with you then we’d love to have a conversation about how you might fit in at Angry Catfish. Before you get too excited think about a few prerequisites:
Product knowledge. You gotta have it. You gotta want more of it. Our customer base trusts us to be experts and put them into the right bicycles, clothing, suspension, brakes and coffee.
Attention to detail. Everything matters. How this handlebar tape is wrapped, how long each piece of housing is, tires being seated correctly and at the right pressure, which chain goes on what drivetrain, ect. We like to make things look pretty, we hope you do too.
The ability to work in a fast paced environment self sufficiently. We all need to take on many tasks from start to finish. Seeing a project through and knowing when to ask for help are very important attributes in our ideal hire.
Basic knowledge of bicycle fit. We can always learn more, but do you know how your bike fits? Do you know why it fits that way and why you like that it fits that way? Being able to talk to fellow cyclists about their wants/needs for how a bicycle fits is very important.
Weekends. We need you here on weekends. Not to say you’re not going to be able to get out and participate in some events, races, or bike packing on the weekends, we want you to do those things, but we need you here too.
You must be prepared to take on a variety of tasks including but not limited to: SALES, SERVICE, INVENTORY MANAGEMENT, BUYING, SOCIAL MEDIA PROMOTION, INFLATING BASKET BALLS, SWEEPING, CLEANING TOILETS, PUTTING UP WITH NARCISSISM AND EGOS, HAVING A GOOD TIME, DRINKING COFFEE, DRINKING BEER, MEETING COOL PEOPLE, and MORE.
This is a full time, year round, livable wage position with benefits.
