Title: Administrative Assistant — PeopleForBikes Coalition
Location: Boulder, CO
Industry: Bicycle Industry Nonprofit
Employment and Classification: “At will” employment status; full-time position
PeopleForBikes works to unite millions of Americans, thousands of businesses and hundreds of communities to make every bike ride safer, more accessible and more fun. Our mission is to get more people on bikes more often and make biking better for everyone. Nationwide, PeopleForBikes represents 280 supplier members, more than 1,100 Ride Spot retailer members and nearly 1.4 million individuals. We support and promote bicycling’s benefits and back crucial bike infrastructure policies, projects and programs.
PeopleForBikes is hiring an entry-level administrative assistant who will report to the chief of staff (COS).
While PeopleForBikes transitioned to mostly remote work in the last year, this role will be required to be in our Boulder office about two days per week most weeks, and more for certain event weeks.
The ideal candidate is extremely organized with an eye for detail and helping set up the organization and individual employees for success. The ideal candidate also demonstrates a strong desire to support the success of others and take initiative to help people, teams and the office be more productive and efficient. This role will juggle running day-to-day operations and multiple organizational, office and team administrative tasks.
Compensation and Benefits
This “at-will” position offers a competitive salary commensurate with experience with a range of $45,500 - $48,000. PeopleForBikes offers an excellent and comprehensive benefits package. This includes paid health insurance for employees, a generous paid-time-off (PTO) policy including 22 days plus federal holidays, paid parental leave, a flexible work schedule including work from home options and optional participation in a deferred compensation retirement plan, with immediate vesting of the competitive employer match. In addition, we provide long-term disability insurance, a regional public transportation pass, a cell phone plan and a computer along with other benefits.
At PeopleForBikes, our agreed-upon set of team norms is what drives us to do our best every day we show up to work. We continually strive to build and strengthen our team, we work together effectively to serve our mission and we have fun. Beyond that, we’re casual, we work flexibly with some remote work allowed and we love dogs. You don’t have to be an amazing bike rider to work here — what matters to us is a desire to work alongside passionate people improving the world through bikes (and hopefully you love bikes too).
Our work to create safer, more comfortable and accessible places to ride for everyone starts with us. As an equal opportunity employer, we are committed to hiring a diverse workforce and will consider alternative ways in which an applicant may have gained the required qualifications outside of traditional pathways.
We are working to ensure our staff reflects the backgrounds, experiences and perspectives of the communities we serve. Employing a diverse staff enables us to better serve diverse communities and build an empowering, collaborative and innovative work culture. We strive to create an inclusive work environment where employees from all backgrounds and communities feel welcomed, valued, respected and received.
Externally, our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Subcommittee is working to make the bike industry more inclusive and welcoming by cultivating authentic relationships with historically marginalized communities, developing and sharing DEI resources and working to combat racism, homophobia and misogyny within our own companies. Recognizing that change starts internally, we’re improving our talent management lifecycle. Below are some examples of our current initiatives. This list is not comprehensive nor complete, and our work to create a truly diverse and inclusive workplace is an ongoing process :
We believe that no matter who you are, where you're from or why you ride, everyone can find joy on a bicycle. When you work at PeopleForBikes, you help us do the same.
