PUBLIC is Hiring


PUBLIC’s mission is to encourage everyone to think more intelligently about the way we get around and to improve the quality of living in our cities and communities. We think that bikes offer one great solution. We’d like to change the world in our own modest way, and we need like-minded individuals with high standards to help us achieve our goals. A passion for our mission is essential for anyone interested in working at PUBLIC.

We’re motivated by the excitement and challenge of building a nationally-recognized brand known for quality bikes. We are growing quickly, and we are recruiting for several positions listed below. If you have a friendly demeanor, curiosity, and a desire to change the world, please send us a note of interest and resume. All inquiries will be kept confidential, and we will follow up in more detail with any qualified applicant.

Director of Merchandise - Full Time (San Francisco)

PUBLIC seeks a full-time person to oversee Merchandise and Product Development. This position reports to the Founder/CEO and will work closely with all other departments. We need a hands-on team player with 5-10 years product management experience with related specialty web centric retail businesses. This person must be comfortable working in a fast paced small company environment rather than a more formal large company structure. This position will oversee all aspects of merchandise, product development and inventory (including bikes). Management experience with product assortments, improving margins, and managing inventory in a web and store-based environment is expected. Leadership skills include a visionary and entrepreneurial attitude and a good sense of humor. Having larger company experience is valuable, but this position is for a hands-on person who can manage their own spreadsheets and make their own travel while taking on management responsibility.
