The Vanilla Workshop Is Hiring! (Closed)



The Vanilla Workshop houses three brands: Vanilla Bicycles, one of a kind and built by Sacha White; Speedvagen, our batch built race bike brand; and Coat Paint Shop, painting and powder coating for independent bicycle frame builders including Vanilla and Speedvagen.

We do a lot of things here at The Vanilla Workshop. At the core of what’s going on here is the design, innovation and refinement of the bicycles we make from scratch for our customers.

We’re looking for someone who is organized and consistently nails their goals. Someone who likes challenges, who communicates well, is good-natured and who feels at home in a shop environment. A mantra at our shop is that if it isn’t going to be 100%, or damn close, we’re not going to do it. As part of this, we will hire someone who is very particular about details.

Our new co-worker will have a minimum of 2-years full time frame building experience and should be totally comfortable with both Oxy/Acetylene torch and TIG. Additional management duties will include:

  • Scheduling
  • Organizing materials orders
  • Developing tooling
  • Managing frame building assistants
  • Coordinating with paint, design and mechanics to meet goals on time and on budget.

Pay and benefits:

The pay for this position  will be based on the person’s level of experience. We're committed to a good standard of living.  On top of the base wage, we offer a solid benefits package including health insurance, profit sharing and paid time off.

If you feel that you’re a good fit, please apply by email. In the body of the email, state the length of your last two jobs and the amount of time you’ve spent working with a frame building shop, or building frames on your own. Also attach a one-page resume and a one-page cover letter describing your life experience as it applies to this job, including any experience with bicycles or the making of things to:

The deadline for submissions is ­­­­­­­­­October 28th, 2013.
