The ideal candidates will be passionate about the bicycle as a sustainable, equitable, and healthy form of transportation. BICAS applications should be interested in HR work, social media, fundraising, and nonprofit management. We are seeking someone excited to participate fully in the communal governance of a small non-profit organization and be committed to the Tucson community.


Summary for all positions:

All positions will be cross trained in bicycle mechanics and business administration. The ideal candidate will be passionate about the bicycle as a sustainable, equitable, and healthy form of transportation. BICAS applicants should also be interested in behind-the-scenes work such as HR, social media, fundraising, and nonprofit management. 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 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 should demonstrate precious commitment to the Tucson community.

To apply:
Please complete our online application. You will be required to upload a pdf, doc, or docx of both your cover letter and resume in order to be considered.

Please read the entire job description* before applying. Note that is NOT just a “normal” bike shop job! *Youth Programs Job Description coming soon.
