General Manager Job Description & Requirements


General Manager

Position: Full Time Year-Round
Location: Downtown Denver

Description: As shop General Manager, you stand as the nexus of three relationships: to our community, to your team, and to the business. Elevation Cycles exist to server people through bikes. As General Manager, it is your opportunity to instantiate our mission to your community. To know how to make bikes better in your area, you must know the needs, missed opportunities, and passions of your customers. This requires you to live it, you can’t phone this one in.

In your relationship to your team, you are responsible for hiring great people and helping structure their environment to bring out their super powers. We know that we are only as good as our team and great teams are cultivated, not found. The GM is responsible for keeping an eye out for how to help each member of his or her team grow. Beyond developing your team, you must also set clear expectations, hold folks accountable to those, and ensure a healthy, trusting work environment. 

In your relationship to the business, we expect you to let us know what your team needs as much as we expect you to make sure they know what the business needs. You are the voice that translates the requirements of the business into actionable steps for your team and translates the momentary needs or your team into long term solutions.
