Fleet Technician, Cascadia Mobility

Eugene, OR

Status: Part-Time and Full-Time positions available

Reports to: Operations Manager, Cascadia Mobility

Location: Eugene, OR

Wage: $15-17.50/hour

BACKGROUND & SCOPE OF RESPONSIBILITY

Cascadia Mobility is the nonprofit operator of Eugene’s bike share program, PeaceHealth Rides. We are growing our team as our scope broadens in 2022.

A driver’s license and a clean driving record are required

The Fleet Technician team is nimble and tight-knit. Typical weekdays begin at 7:30 am. You’ll first use web-based map and data tools to make a list of rentable vehicles that need attention. Based on your list, you’ll build a route and select one of our fleet vehicles—from a van to e-trike—to complete your route. For the second part of your shift, you might return to the field for preventative maintenance or perform repairs in our shop.

Though no formal experience is required, mechanical aptitude, wayfinding, and computer literacy are strongly preferred. Our training program will cumulatively and comprehensively build your skill and confidence in mechanical service, hardware, and software. 

Cascadia Mobility is a growing, dynamic organization; successful candidates will be team players with personal initiative and a positive attitude.
