Why Work Here?

“We put our staff first and believe they should should have a good work/life balance with the ability to earn a living in our industry.”

We’re growing our team in beautiful La Jolla village and looking for an Assistant Manager for our Specialty Electric Bike Shop.

We are San Diego’s oldest full service electric bike shop, specializing in high performance, premium ebike sales (these ain't your mamma's ebikes!) as well as service, guided tours and rentals.

We are passionate about sharing the electric bike culture with our customers! Our team of A-game players approach our work with enthusiasm, passion, and focus to consistently be the best at what we offer.

We put our staff first and believe they should should have a good work/life balance with the ability to earn a living in our industry. Bring your “A” game and we’ll reward you!

If you’re looking for just a job, then this isn’t for you, but if you’re ready for a career in the industry with a lot of room to grow professionally and monetarily, then you might be a great fit!

As an Assistant Manager, here’s the activities you’ll be helping with:

Shop Sales: 35%

  • Managing Tour & Rental business: You’ll be eventually overseeing the tours and rentals at this location.

  • eBike and Service Sales: You’ll be engaging with our customers to help them figure out the best solutions for their needs.

  • Eventually interfacing with DMC’s for organizing corporate event tours.

Internal Operations: 35%

  • Inventory Management: You’ll be in charge of managing and accounting for inventory that moves through the store.

  • Merchandising of the store to ensure a professional, accessible, and inviting shopping experience. This also includes labeling the bikes for sale with pricing and other marketing material.

  • Helping out in the service shop where necessary: This includes doing bike builds, QA’s, interfacing with customers and suppliers.

Giving Tours and Customer Outreach: 30%

  • Running our booth at the Sunday Farmer’s Market and collecting sales leads for you to follow up on.

  • Initially you’ll be doing a sizable share of our guided ebike tours, but fewer as you’re able to take on more shop responsibilities.

  • We’ll also have you visit local hotels in La Jolla to remind them of why they should send their guests to Fly Rides.

The right candidate would ideally possess the following attributes, in no particular order:

  • Passionate about Bikes: We’re looking for a candidate that loves all things bike related. Ideally you will have worked in a bike shop for an extended period, like to commute to work by bike, bike recreationally, and maybe even know how to wrench a bit! If you’re not all about bike culture, then we’re probably not the best fit.

  • Self-motivated: If you don’t already plan your day, then go ahead and rule yourself out. We’re looking for someone who wakes up each day with an agenda and knows how to execute on it.

  • Sharp/Detail Oriented: We’re not talking academia here, but the type of calculating sharpness you’ll need to absorb information, make intelligent decisions & then execute thoughtfully and thoroughly.

  • Teachable: Big egos need not apply. We’re looking for a team member who knows how to absorb and apply what we teach them quickly & efficiently without being defensive. You should consider yourself a quick learner and have a general curiosity about things and how they work.

  • Outgoing and Communicative: This position requires a lot of connecting with customers, manufacturers, and other team members. You should only apply if that is something you would be comfortable with and that doesn’t intimidate you.

  • Earnest: When you commit to something, are you determined to see it through? Are you sincere and resolute in that commitment? Do you take pride in doing a job well?

  • Trustworthy: Most people will just gloss over this one, but do yourself a favor and be honest with yourself so you don’t waste your time or ours.

  • Positive: Are you consistently upbeat and enthusiastic, even when circumstances would make most others feel otherwise? Having a positive and optimistic mindset will allow you to better deal with situations as they arise.

Compensation:

You’ll start at $15/hr for the first 3 month trial period. In addition, you’ll have the ability to earn tips and commissions of $10/review you receive from your tours (reviews on select websites, must be 5 star and mention your name). You’ll also have the opportunity to earn sales commissions of 6% of net + bonuses for hitting sales goals.

After the 3 month trial period, if you are indeed the right candidate, we’ll bring you on as a salaried employee with an increase in pay. You’ll also be incentivized to reach sales goals and will receive extra monthly/quarterly/annual bonuses for hitting these goals.

Benefits and Perks working w/ Fly Rides:

First and foremost, we’re a stellar place to work! We value our team members and give them extensive training, and then the ability to work autonomously. We do road and eMTB club rides and offer employee ebike discounts. We also participate/race in a lot of local events like the Boogaloo eMTB races as well as others. Salaried employees get paid time off too, woohoo!
