Are you looking for a job in the bike industry? Then you’ve come to the right place! On this page you will find job offers from well-known bike brands like Shimano, Scott, Frog Bikes, Trek or Specialized.

Popular bike brands

Frog Bikes is a family-run company from Wales that specialises in children’s bikes. Jerry & Shelley Lawson founded Frog Bikes in 2013, when they themselves were searching for the perfect bike for their children. Five years later, their philosophy of focusing on children has earned them worldwide recognition and industry awards for innovation and design.

The bike market is a strong industry with a promising future

 

Sporty & dynamic companies. Young & familiar teams. Insights into the latest developments. These alone are three reasons to apply to a bicycle brand or start-up. In addition, the bike industry is a stable sector, especially in Europe, and thus produces attractive employers with good future prospects. Because: cycling is more than a sport, it is a lifestyle. Thanks to e-bikes and innovative designs, biking has also arrived in urban areas in recent years. The growth of the industry is correspondingly evident, with annual sales of around 7 billion euros
((according to ZIV in Germany, 2019)).

Requirements for a job in the bike industry

What do I need for a successful career in the bike sector? From our previous job advertisements of the various suppliers, three things have emerged very quickly that are essential for a bike job:

A passion for cycling

Unlike other industries, the bicycle industry – similar to the entire sports and outdoor scene – lives from attracting employees who are passionate about sports. So it takes a lot of enthusiasm and passion for mountain biking, road cycling or other two-wheeled sports if you want to gain a successful foothold here. Not only will you enjoy your job more, you probably also bring the necessary know-how, networks and inventiveness to help your company move forward. Only if you ride yourself do you know what a bike has to be able to do and how to address the target group correctly

Know the products and the market

Two wheels, a handlebar, a saddle and a frame – that has to be a bicycle. It ‘s not quite that simple. Unlike other sports, cycling, even as a pure hobby, requires a minimum of know-how about the different types of bike and its components. Focusing on a career here, you should already have more than just a layman’s understanding of the market and the relevant product categories and their characteristics. Mountain bike, BMX, road bike, trekking bike, cross bike, e-bike, etc. – the product range is deep and wide.

Also with regard to bicycle technology, at least a basic understanding is a great advantage, especially when it comes to tyres, brakes, suspension and frame.

Concentrate on your hard skills

It doesn’t matter whether you come from a different industry or graduated in a non-sport-related program: You can transfer your skills to the bike industry. Bicycle brands are looking for engineers, marketing, sales, purchasing, product management, business development or accounting staff who know their trade, or who want to take on new challenges in their familiar field.

The situation is different in trade: If you want to work as a bicycle technician, bicycle mechanic or two-wheel mechatronics technician, you need the appropriate training and particular skills specifically tailored to bicycle technology.
