The Pro's Closet | Photographer/Videographer- Marketing
This job post has expired
The Pro’s Closet (TPC) was founded on an obsession with cycling and sustainability. We believe we can make the world a better place by getting more people on bikes, and by repurposing the abundance of high-quality bikes and parts that are already out there. Clearly, a lot of people think like we do because we are experiencing phenomenal growth, and just received $40m of VC funding from groups such as TGC, The Foundry Group, and Edison Partners. We are on the lookout for highly talented, like-minded people who want to take part in our mission: to change the way people buy and sell bikes.
What sets TPC apart:
We are committed to building a great company that provides unparalleled customer service. We believe this starts with great people and a great company culture. Each individual has a key role to play in TPC’s success, but we all work as one team dedicated to constant improvement and efficiency. We welcome making mistakes, learning from them, and not making them again. We are driven by internal innovation and accuracy, and “Lean” is a guiding principle.
Our structure allows you to take responsibility and shape the company for the better and be recognized for it. From top to bottom, we adhere to core beliefs in transparency and openness. We love to work hard, but always leave time to ride our bikes.
If you enjoy being part of a high-growth company that is disrupting the bike industry then we want to hear from you!
