Job Description & Requirements

Hey, cyclists—you just found your dream job. 

Northtowne Cycling & Fitness seeks to fill not one but two positions that represent the cycling management trifecta: the Sales Manager and Service Manager will have the opportunity to work in a multi-generational, stable store in the bike industry, located in one of the most vibrant, affordable, and bike-friendly towns in America, in a career-track position with more-than-competitive compensation and a supportive boss, to boot. 

Like we said: dream. job.

Despite the dubitable success of so many cycling shops these days, Northtowne Cycling & Fitness remains a stable, profitable, and expanding icon in the industry, topping the ABBS/Top 100 Retailer list for 10 consecutive years. The shop has been an integral part of the Cedar Rapids community and cycling industry for more than 9 decades. With a new, 4th generation leader at the helm, the family-owned and -operated business is looking to cultivate a new leadership team to drive Northtowne’s position as a trailblazer in the industry. The new management team will be given the tools, training, and support to enhance their personal skillsets in order to propel the business and their own career forward. 

Other benefits of the management positions include a competitive salary ($50 to $60,000 annually), a supportive and extenuating training program, medical insurance, paid time off, paid holidays, simple IRA, commuter tax credit, and a rewarding, family-oriented work environment with a renowned cycling culture. The city of Cedar Rapids straddles the line of small town charm and big city convenience, with extensive cycling infrastructure, affordable housing, great schools, and a vibrant, cool vibe. It’s the perfect place and position to settle into a fantastic career in the industry you love. 

So, are you qualified? Both the Sales Manager and Service Manager require candidates with enthusiasm, excitement, and energy for their industry, their employees, and their shop. Ideal applicants should bring extensive experience in employee and retail management, as well as the ability to make executive decisions to help direct, guide, grow and evolve the team and business. Qualified candidates should feel comfortable supporting the sale or service of 15+ brands of new bicycles, e-bikes, and fitness equipment and interacting with a broad range of cycling and fitness clientele, from novice to elite-level cyclists. If you’re detail-oriented and ambitious with a heart for customer service and a mind for team development, then this is the job for you.
