PAID INTERNSHIP - PEDAL PROFESSOR

About Handlebars

 

Handlebars is the UK’s fastest growing repair network for micro- mobility. Part of the JustPark family, Handlebars aims to help cities breathe. With more bicycles and scooters on the road than ever before, but fewer and fewer maintenance workshops to support them, we’re on a mission to turn underutilised urban spaces into perfect locations for repair and maintenance. We have big plans and are just getting started. 

 

We are hugely enthusiastic about cycling & care deeply about helping people to travel around inner-cities without harming the environment. We are on a mission to repurpose under-used spaces (buildings, shops and car parks) and offer a convenient place for all forms of bicycles to get serviced and fixed. Today, there are too few places for repairs and this problem will grow as more people use the trusty bicycle.

Something about the three workshops that are currently open...

 

Cyclists using the Handlebars service will have access to:

  • Super convenient, central locations - As our network of locations grows we will provide full city coverage. 

  • Handy collection service - we believe customers want convenience and if that means we need to collect and drop off the bike, we will. 

  • Smooth, simple technology - our background is helping build tech for JustPark - a platform which allows drivers to pre-book parking. As well as being into our bikes we are also tech geeks and believe we have the right knowledge to build an awesome platform which is easy for cyclists to use and help  mechanics work smartly and efficiently 

  • Quality services - not only will our mechanics be the best in-class, we are a friendly company who is obsessed with giving our customers unbeatable services using great new technology

 

The business is in hyper growth so this is a rare opportunity to join from the beginning and help shape our future.
