Icycle Sports is now hiring bicycle mechanics and sales staff.
Come and join the biggest and most advanced bike shop North of 60 with a rapidly growing ski/board business.
Join our family of passionate outdoor enthusiasts, and cyclists who both work for us and are our best customers.
Surrounded by an endless wilderness of mountains, lakes, and rivers, Whitehorse is a place for adventurers and hardy, resourceful people. There are hundreds of kilometers of mountain bike trails for quick after work rips to all-day missions.
Endless backcountry to explore is also literally at your doorstep, in a small town with big city services.
Summers under the midnight sun and winters of world-class cross-country and back country skiing await. We also have an extensive networks of groomed single-track fat bike riding.
Who we are looking for
Icycle is looking for bicycle mechanics with preferably previous experience at a specialty bicycle shop, but this is not essential.
Potential candidates should be familiar and practiced with all aspects of common hydraulic brake systems, suspension forks and shocks, full-suspension pivot services as well as all types of bicycle drivetrains (even the old stuff).
Candidates should have experience with road, gravel and e-bicycles. An interest and/or previous experience with ski tuning both XC and alpine is an asset as we are looking for year-round mechanics with skills/interest in ski tech work.
Icycle is also looking for sales staff with previous customer service experience and a friendly outlook, as well as a willingness to learn.
Icycle’s large selection of products is based around high quality, best in class technical products which require a lot of product knowledge. Our customers are generally very knowledgeable, but value high quality advice.
Our year-round permanent staff benefit from a stable, higher than most, salary with 2 weeks paid vacation and paid sick time; as well as a healthcare benefit program.
Icycle has a furnished apartment attached to the shop to help with the housing situation for new to Whitehorse staff. We also have many local contacts with housing opportunities that never make it to public advertising due to the accommodation shortages.
Seasonal service and sales positions
If you are unsure about making the plunge and re-locating permanently and are looking to try a summer up north, we also have some seasonal service and sales positions available.
Hours of operation
Icycle Sports is currently open Monday to Fridays from 10 am to 6 pm and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In the summer, Saturday hours are extended to 6 p.m.
Pre-pandemic we were open on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and these hours will likely resume in the summer of 2022 to better serve rental bike customers.
Candidates must be willing and able to work on weekends. We do our best to guarantee 2 consecutive days off to all staff members with some exceptions when circumstances dictate.
