BICAS staff en route to Bike!Bike! annual bike collectives conference

BICAS is Hiring!

Snapshot:

  • Seeking applicants diverse in regards to age, race, gender, &/or sexual orientation with varied skills and interests who are at once highly self-motivated/independent and invested in collectivism. Must be excited to learn new things constantly and work closely with others to face challenges and grow as a group.
  • All positions are part mechanic-educator (the part you see when you come to the shop), part co-manager of a small non-profit (behind the scenes work – lots of it!).
  • Starting pay: $13.50/hr. Pay increases to $16.00/hr upon a successful one year review.
  • Benefits: Sick time & paid vacation after 90 days. Employee discounts on new parts/gear. No health insurance at this time.
  • 30-40 hours/wk – weekend availability a must.
  • Year-round residence in Tucson is required.
  • Preference will be given to applicants who plan to remain at the job at least 2 years.
  • Speakers of Spanish, French, or Swahili highly encouraged to apply.
  • Open until filled.

Positions currently open:

  • Art Coordinator/Mechanic
  • Volunteer Coordinator/Mechanic
  • Mechanic/Shop Committee Member

To apply:

If you have never been to the shop, please start by coming in for a visit. Next, read the job description & qualifications for the position you are interested in and send a cover letter and resume, including 3 references, to: hiring@bicas.org . Be sure to indicate which position you are applying for.

Rolling deadline, open until filled. Please check your submission carefully before sending; incomplete applications will not be considered.

Summary for all positions:

The ideal candidate will be passionate about the bicycle as a sustainable, equitable, and healthy form of transportation. BICAS staff frequently work with youth, houseless, refugee, immigrant, and low-income populations. Experience working with these populations in any capacity is a plus, as is being multilingual. We encourage those who can work our WTF (Women, Transgender, Femme) workshop on Mondays to apply. Bicycle mechanical knowledge is not required but is desired. The ability to teach in a patient, compassionate, and hands­-off manner is necessary. Some evening and weekend availability is expected, as well as some work outside the shop, for example: administrative tasks, outreach events, teaching classes, etc.  Please note that working at BICAS is much more than a mechanics position; the ideal candidate will be excited to participate fully in the communal governance of a small non-profit organization and be committed to the Tucson community.

All new hires will have paid training and a 90 day trial period, during which they are expected to work a full schedule, without extended vacations. Upon achieving a positive 90 day review, new staff become fully-fledged members of the BICAS Collective. BICAS holds mandatory Collective Meetings every first and third Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:30pm. All new employees will be required to work weekends for one full year at minimum.
