Old Fort, North Carolina   |   Full Time

[Covid-19 Update: we are collecting applications for this job, but we have paused the interview process in order to do our part preventing the spread of Covid-19. Please do not hesitate to apply, and we'll be back in touch when we resume the interview process.]


Enjoy meeting every visitor to the Kitsbow Cycling Apparel factory, as well as most of the customers entering our new Old Fort Ride House ... and delighting them with delicious beverages. Our unique and welcoming bar is the central meeting point for employees (who enjoy subsidized beverages), our guests, and our customers.


What do you bring? Easy-going hospitality, amazing artistry and care in pulling shots and pouring lattes, and an interest in the wonderful people who ride bikes.  You'll also be giving plenty of advice about the trails and roads here in Old Fort (aka The Other Pisgah).


In fact, Kitsbow is one of the few apparel manufacturers in the U.S. utilizing lean manufacturing (aka Toyota Way methodology) where we can and should make adjustments and improvements to the gear we make. And we make it here in Old Fort, NC. We need awesome customer service talent that will help us make those improvements and inspire new products so that we continue to make gear that is both beautiful and incredibly functional, just-in-time. 


Because we’re changing the world, we’re developing our methodologies and software to support our methods… as we do our work. Developing best practices while using those same practices can be challenging. This is not for the faint of heart.


And we don't just subsidize our employee's thirst for beverages hot and cold, we also pay 100% of the monthly premium for excellent health care insurance. We want them, and you, to be happy and healthy. There are a few other benefits as well... so consider joining our hardy team of adventurers.


Location: We’re located in Old Fort, NC -- and we ride gravel and single track from the office. We practice “Wear Test Wednesdays” when we ride our bikes and test the products that we make… regardless of your skill level, everyone is welcome.
