Physical Demands:  The physical demands described here are representative of those that must be met by an employee to successfully perform the overall duties and responsibilities of this job.

Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities to perform the overall duties and responsibilities.  While performing the duties of this job, the employee is regularly required to stand, walk, use of hands and fingers, handle, or feel, reach above head with hands and arms, lift, push, climb, stoop, kneel, crouch, and/or crawl, pull, talk and hear. The employee must lift and/or move up to 20 pounds. Vision may be corrected within normal range. The noise level in the work environment is quiet.

Why work here: For 25 years Santa Cruz Bicycles has tried to do things a bit differently. Our ultimate goal is to consistently build the best bicycles in the world and have fun doing it, but there is a lot more to it than that. 

We can offer you great benefits that include 100% paid health, dental and vision insurance, 401K matching, monthly employee events and major discounts on bikes and bike gear. Those parts come with the industry. We can offer you a relaxed working environment, local singletrack, and the opportunity to work with a group of bike enthusiasts in a great place to live. Those parts come with the territory.

But what we really want is what you have to offer us. We want to attract job seekers that are looking for a brand that they can be an integral part of, and not just "a company to work for". It's the individual personalities, and the raw enthusiasm for the brand that makes this place special, and that comes directly from the employees of Santa Cruz Bicycles.

Santa Cruz Bicycles

Santa Cruz Bicycles was founded in 1993 in a space the size of a single car garage in the Seabright Cannery, in Santa Cruz California. Our first bike, the Tazmon, was a single pivot dual suspension bike that rattled established sensibilities and helped define our then- ethos of "simply advanced."? That bike was the cornerstone for a brand that was founded on the notion of doing things our own way in order to build the best. We have been rattling sensibilities ever since. We now manufacture 12 models of mountain bikes and a full women's Juliana range, made from either carbon fiber or aluminum, from hardtails to 8.5"? travel downhill machines. We offer suspension designs ranging from the simple efficiency of our single pivot designs to the cutting edge performance found in our unique VPP system. These are available with a wide range of component and suspension options to choose from. Each and every one of our bikes is the distillation of our desire to ride and build the highest performance mountain bikes in the world. No more, no less.
