Now Hiring

Nonprofit Executive Director

Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop seeks a qualified and entrepreneurial executive director to be the hub of our growing nonprofit organization in Everett, WA.

 Sharing Wheels was established in 2002, when we offered bike repairs at the local homeless shelter once a month. We continue to serve a diverse clientele of people who use and love bicycles. Since hiring a professional bike mechanic to run our shop location three years ago, sales of used bikes and parts have more than tripled. Now we need someone who can apply structure and strategic planning to ensure our busy shop serves our  mission.

Desired results:

  • Diverse and stable revenue, including our bike shop and donors
  • Expanded and engaged volunteer base
  • Regular schedule of classes and events
  • Welcoming shop environment that supports sales, volunteers, and staff
  • Balanced programs for adult and child bike repair and work-trade
  • Effective communications and contact management

The executive director will oversee shop operations, implement and evaluate programs, manage and develop volunteers and staff, and implement fundraising and partnership efforts. You will supervise a lead bike mechanic and a part-time staff person.

The job is currently budgeted at 20 hours a week, starting at $26,000 with health insurance, vacation and other benefits. Schedule and salary are negotiable, though some weekend and evening work is required. 

You do not need to be a bike nut or mechanic to apply or excel at this job. You do need to care about sustainable transportation, serving diverse people in need, and partnering with a nonprofit board. 

Maybe you’ve been raising kids, but now want to return to work part-time in a job that matters? Maybe you are easing out of a high-stress career, but still want to make a difference? Perhaps you are a recent college graduate or non-traditional student with the skills to take us to the next level?

The right candidate has the energy or experience (preferably both) to make an immediate impact. Read our blog post for a bit more background.

Apply by emailing your resume, cover letter, and contact information for three references to Board President Kristin Kinnamon, bikenbus@gmail.com. Your cover letter should describe how you meet the qualifications in this Job Post (PDF) and the official Job Description (PDF)

Position open until filled. First review of resumes will take place Oct. 1.  We hope to have someone hired by mid-November.
