Shipping and Receiving

We are seeking a Shipping and Receiving handler to process orders and package inventory.  The perfect candidate will be a fellow bike nerd with a strong attention to detail and the ability to work on their feet throughout the day.

 

COMPANY OVERVIEW

The Pros Closet (TPC) is the world’s largest retailer of previously-owned and overstock bikes and cycling gear on eBay.  TPC helps bike retailers, athletes, manufacturers, and bike enthusiasts sell their gear in a hassle-free way.   TPC currently operates exclusively on eBay and study’s auction science to sell its inventory quickly and efficiently.

Founded in 2007 by a former professional mountain biker living out of his Volkswagen Bus, The Pro’s Closet started as a hobby and quickly grew into an easy way for professional cycling teams to sell their used gear.  Since then, TPC has become a highly-regarded ecommerce destination for people around the world to buy and sell previously-owned bikes and gear.

With just under 40 employees in our casual, yet fast-paced environment, we recently received an investment from an experienced investment firm to expand our marketplace beyond eBay and to further accelerate our rapid growth.  With deep industry relationships, we are already the leader in what we do and we’re barely scratching the surface.  This is an exciting time to join us!

 

MISSION STATEMENT

To be the trusted marketplace for cyclists to buy and sell gear they use to pursue the sport they love.  Our marketplace is built to inspire cyclists to discover more ways to extend their ride by unlocking the value in gear that already exists.
