General Manager - Everything dude, Marketing/Sales/Web Guru

Snowboard Addiction is currently searching for new General Manager.
Interviewing mid-late October 2014 with an immediate start.
The position is basically the assistant to Nev Lapwood the owner of Snowboard Addiction.
It involves all types of activities related to running a small snowboard company including:

  • Web development (specifically front end web development using Shopify)
  • Design
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Video editing

  • Customer service
  • Managing interns

Skills needed:

  • Being a technical wizard is a big help
  • Web development and graphic design skills
  • Strong sales and marketing ability and confidence in sales
  • Prefer snowboarders

Previous GM:
My previous GM was a front end web-developer. I found his skills particularly useful especially with regards to developing the website, SEO, video diagrams, product design and branding. Our website is built on the Shopify platform. An advanced knowledge of web design using Shopify is a major asset.

Starting with 20 hours per week with the potential to go full time especially over winter.

We are an extremely flexible place to work. Our typical office hours at 3pm - 7pm Monday to Friday. This is the perfect job if you live in Whistler and never want to miss another pow day. If you need to take a week off for a last minute snowboard trip we can usually always make this work.

Our office is in Creekside.

Snowboard Addiction is an extremely small company and a lifestyle based business. We are extremely flexible and an awesome place to work but the wages aren't amazing. Pretty much in line with most other jobs in Whistler but a way better place to work. The starting wage is between $12-$15/hour depending on your skills and experience. Most of the previous general managers have been on $15 or $16/hour after 6 months working here.
If you are really awesome and can help build revenue and profit in the company then you will rewarded adequately and tied into a bonus schedule if you stay long term.

Next Step:

Do not delay! Appropriate applications will be called in for an interview and the most appropriate applicant will be chosen to start approximately October 20th - 25th.
Good Luck!
