WHY DRIVE A RICKSHAW?
This is a fun opportunity to make good money. You get to be your own boss, set your own schedule, get in shape (though bikes are battery powered for your ease), be in the lovely outdoors, share your love of Asheville, and express your unique self. We welcome lots of play and self-expression!
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We are looking for driving partners who have lots of energy and love engaging with humanity. You must be collaborative, creative, spontaneous, self-motivated, enthusiastic and have great communication skills. In addition you must be in good shape, know your way around downtown Asheville and the River Arts District, and be willing to engage with the public. A great sense of humor helps too.
As a driver you will be an independent contractor. This means you will be your own business. As per your schedule you will be leasing the equipment and be solely responsible for covering your own shifts. The rickshaws are battery run, which will help with the labor. All drivers will be fully trained and must agree to city ordinances before rickshaws can be leased. Each rickshaw will be equipped with a phone/GPS/square/taxi application. In addition, fun props and audio system will be provided for driver and rider adventuring.
WHAT WILL WE NEED FROM YOU?
To qualify as a driver, the city of Asheville requires that you:
1 Are 21 years or older
2 Have a valid NC Drivers License
3 Have or are willing to obtain a physicians note insuring you are medically fit to drive a Rickshaw bicycle.
