Production Finisher

We are one of the world’s best ultra-premium bicycles brands and are renowned for our exceptional craftmanship. Our advanced engineering provides the highest level of performance and all-day riding comfort. We love the art and technology of bikes, but most of all we love riding them. We believe that our bikes should be built with pride and a fanatical focus on quality, so that their new owners can experience the true joy of riding something special.

The business is growing, and we’re looking for outstanding people to join our team. We celebrate diversity, uniqueness and a little oddball creativity. We don’t hire aholes and we do work hard. We’re dedicated and passionate and we’ve got each other’s back. We get sht done!

We’re looking for someone with a solid work ethic, attention to detail, and the interest to learn how to help produce best in class bicycles right in Beverly Massachusetts. In this role, you will help prepare frames for the customers’ desired finish. Either getting them ready to go into our paint lab or right out the door with our signature raw carbon finishes. As much as it would be awesome if you already knew everything there is to know about finishing carbon fiber frames, we 100% do not expect nor require it! Our hope is to help a motivated, positive, attentive craftsperson learn everything there is to know to produce these beautiful machines so we can continue to make our customers’ dream bikes come to life.

It would be nice if you loved bikes, but it’s more important you are interested in the craft of making a handmade product. You’ll work within a small, dedicated team, learning about materials we use and how to best work with them, while ensuring frames meet quality standards and customer specifications. We lead with a smile on our face, an optimistic outlook and with a kind firmness. You should expect the same.

We don’t care where you went to school or which chess club you were president of. What we care about is your attitude and your desire to learn and grow. We don’t care where you come from, but we do care about where you’re going. Even if you don’t have experience at all the things listed below, if you feel that you’ve got a valuable set of skills and the right traits and would be excited to learn and grow into the role, then reach out. We want to hear from you.
