Bike Guide, San Francisco
We want top-notch bike guides who can provide our clientele with exceptional, unforgettable experiences. We’re a very young company, but our goal is to be the best in the business. We’re already the #1 rated tour on Trip Advisor in San Francisco, but you’ll be helping us get even better!
What kind of guides are we looking for? Read through the questions below. If you can answer “yes” to most of them, we’d love to hear from you.
- Do you have exceptional people skills? Can you converse with all different types of people? Are you interested in other people’s stories?
- Do you know San Francisco? How long have you lived here? What are you most passionate about in this city? Is it the food, the bike culture, or its wild history? What about its diversity, its eccentric people, or its art?
- Do you have outdoor or urban guiding experience? If so, what is it about guiding that you love the most?
- Are you energized by quickly thinking on your feet? Can you solve problems confidently and on the fly?
- Are you willing to change bike tires, adjust brakes and shifters, and in general, get your hands dirty? Do you do most of the maintenance on your own bike? If not, are you willing to learn how?
- Are you OK with having non-traditional work hours and working weekends and holidays?
- Does working in a young, unique, fun, and growing organization appeal to you? Does it excite you that you could help us refine our day-to-day processes, offerings, and future direction?
