  • Bicycle Mechanic – Managerial Position

     

    Oxygen Bike Co is West Toronto’s leading bicycle retail store. We

    specialize in road, mountain and hybrid bicycles for both families and

    racers. We have a new larger location, a new service area and maintain the

    highest standards in customer-focused service.

     

    We are seeking a full-time (year round) Head Mechanic/Manager to be both a

    hands-on Technician and mentor to our Tech team.

     

    Technical duties would include full repairs on bicycle such as tune-ups,

    builds, BB replacements, hydraulic brake bleeds, frame swaps and more. We

    work with all the major suppliers such as LTP, Lambert, OGC etc.

     

    Managerial duties include store opening/closing, scheduling, training etc.

     

    The successful incumbent must come from the bicycle industry past or

    present– this is not an apprentice level role.

     

    Compensation will depend on experience, but we know it’s better to employ

    experienced people and pay a little more, than to hire “cheap”. IF YOU

    ARE FROM OUT OF TOWN AND WOULD CONSIDER MOVING TO TORONTO/MISSISSAUGA AND

    REQUIRE A “MOVING INCENTIVE” TO HELP GET YOU STARTED, WE CAN HELP. This

    is obviously a case by case basis, but if it’s time to start fresh in a new

    city, we’re happy to work something out.

     

    To apply:

    Email your resume and cover letter to shawn@oxygenbikes.com or call

    416-259-2453 and ask for Shawn or Chris for an initial conversation.
