Real World Job Title : Assistant Race Director

Brokeman’s Job Title : Assistant Race Director

Reports to : You will work directly with the owners of the company.

 

Applications will be taken from June 13th 2017 - June 20th 2017. (That’s one week)

 

About Brokemans : We provide a positive, affordable and community oriented racing environment that's low cost, low frills, but fully supported. We aim to bridge the gap between the road race atmosphere and the trail race atmosphere. Sustainability, affordability, community support, non-intimidation and tons of fun. So we have done away with the fan fair, the free bottles of wine and the giant inflatable arches, and lowered the cost to give everybody a chance to give running a shot!

 

Mission Statement : Brokeman's Running is a local grass roots running movement aiming at taking the glitz and swag out of the racing scene and bringing back the focus on community, the beauty of the grind, and the promotion of physical and mental health.

 

Know before you go : Start-up Status.

 

“Startup is a state of mind,” says Adora Cheung, cofounder and CEO of Homejoy, one of the Hottest U.S. Startups of 2013. “It’s when people join your company and are still making the explicit decision to forgo stability in exchange for the promise of tremendous growth and the excitement of making immediate impact.”

 

Brokeman’s Running is a start-up. Please read about what a start-up is before you go forwards.

Salary : One thing this means is that the salary and benefits will be very low to start. We ARE looking for someone who wants to grow with us. We ARE looking for someone who cares about what Brokeman’s is doing and the impact it is making in the running world and the community it’s creating. We are looking for someone who isn’t an employee, but takes ownership in their role in the company and grows it like it’s their own. We WILL be compensating as quickly as we can. The salary will be percentage based off of net race profits to start with. We will work together at making this a fair paid position as fast as we can. We are looking for someone who wants to grow this position into a full time career and help our company grow and become more impactful.

 

Position Summary :  The assistant race director will be in charge of helping the Brokeman’s Races operate.

We have events that take place all year round in cities all around Ohio.

 

We are looking to solidify the brand and operations of Brokeman’s races and grow the existing ones. We are also looking to expand the races/events and add more in the coming years. We are looking for someone that feels comfortable in adding their own ideas and opinions and will eventually be able to operate without constant guidance once learning the brand. We’ve been around for over 3 years, so you are out of the baby start-up phase, and onto the exciting start-up phase.

 

Our company, being a continuously growing start up, is constantly trying to find it’s place in the world and we are ever growing and changing to stay relevant, inspiring, and community focused.
