Now, the touchy-feely stuff :
We want someone to change the world with us.
We want to make the world a better place with our bikes. We’re looking for someone who shares our vision and goes the extra mile to bring it to life.
You’ll need to be as stubbornly focused as we are.
We do more with less here. But everything we do should inspire companies to get riding, and it’ll be your job to make that happen.
And you'll have to be damn inventive.
We don't just want someone who can tick the boxes, we're looking for someone who can solve problems of all sizes, lean into the chaos, and help us get better every day.
We're growing like crazy, so you'll also need the patience of a saint and the persistence of a bulldog. Things move fast here, but that’s all part of the fun.
Do you think you can roll your sleeves up, and get your hands dirty in the making, building, problem-solving and growing we'll be doing in 2019 and beyond?
We want to hear from you.
