Bike & Build is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that hosts cross-country and regional cycling trips centered on engaging young adults around affordable housing issues across the country. Bike & Build’s staff is small but mighty, made up of 3 full-time Directors. Together with the Director of Outreach and Communications (DOC) and the Program Director (PD), the Director of Operations and Development (DOD) works to ensure the long term sustainability, success, and growth of the organization. The staff structure is unique in that there is no Executive Director; the 3-Director, laterally-structured staff collaborates daily with the Board of Directors, with the full-time staff taking on considerable responsibility in directing the future of the organization.

The DOD’s role is split into two main areas of work – general operations of the organization and fundraising. Specific areas of focus are listed below. Because Bike & Build’s current organizational structure is lateral, and without an Executive Director, this role also takes on the majority of the interaction with the Board of Directors, supported by the PD and DOC. The DOD will spend the majority of their time working remotely, but will support the PD with trip-related travel as needed. Proximity to an airport is ideal to support the PD with trip orientations and end of trip visits, but is not required.
This is a full-time, year-round position, with benefits. Bike & Build is currently an entirely virtual staff and Board, so this job can be performed from anywhere in the United States. While participation in a previous Bike & Build trip as a Rider or Trip Leader is a plus, it is also not required.

About Bike & Build

Bike & Build engages young adults in service-oriented cycling trips to raise and awareness for the affordable housing cause. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that fosters a sustained connection to community. We advocate for the need for affordable housing in thousands of communities across the country.

For nearly 20 years, Bike & Build has organized bike trips and bike rides centered around affordable housing. Each summer we have about 120 participants (ages 18-29) who spend their summers pedaling across or around the US, committed to education around affordable housing; advocating for the cause; and spending 15-20 days volunteering on-site with a range of affordable housing organizations along the way.
