Careers

From the beginning, our goal has always been to produce the best riding mountain bikes in the world. Bikes that not only perform at the most elite levels of the sport, but that also enabled every Pivot rider to achieve things they never thought possible out on the trail. We continually push the boundaries of what is possible in bike design and technology, bringing every performance gain possible to each new model. Our culture is one where our employees share in Pivot’s success and drive to always be the best. Everyone wants to be part of the winning team so as a company we involve our employees in ways that make us all part of something bigger and better. We love to have regular company events and bike rides.

As the founding sponsor and primary funding source for the Arizona Interscholastic Cycling League we encourage and support our employees to volunteer with the league and at events. We also donate bikes every year to kids that would like to join the team but don’t have the ability to afford a bike. Sales success is important, but sharing in customer satisfaction and our involvement in the community are what brings us together and makes Pivot an incredible place to work.
