Do You Like Bike Parking? Want to Make it Better in DC?
WABA seeks a Bicycle Parking Program Coordinator to assess locations for bike parking and to install bike racks throughout the District. This is a unique job. It involves traveling the city, often by bike pulling a trailer and carrying tools, to install bike parking racks. It also involves becoming a resource to answer bike parking-related questions for businesses and property owners. You will need to be willing and able to bike with a trailer, lift 50 pounds (occasionally more), learn appropriate installation techniques and use a hammer drill safely. You will also need to become an expert on the regulations governing bike parking requirements and installations in public space. Most importantly, you need to be detail-oriented and self-directed, and committed to making the District better for bicycling one bike rack at a time.
Benefits include flexible schedule, pro-rated vacation, sick and personal leave and WABA’s retirement and health insurance programs. The position is part-time, 32 hours per week.
