Love cyclocross and want to work in the cycling industry? We’re looking for an account exec to join our small team who can help grow our business through sales of targeted print and interactive advertising packages to cycling brands, agencies, race promoters, bicycle stores, and more.

•Spend 10-20 hours per week on average on building relationships and growing the business

Notes: There are certainly many perks to working for a bicycle industry startup, but please keep in mind we’re a very small operation with a shoestring budget. Your efforts can go a long way to changing that, however. Also, we do appreciate proactive communication from motivated candidates. We need more help because we are far too stretched thin – so don’t be afraid to follow up with us if you don’t hear back.
