Santa Cruz Bicycles

Our mission at Santa Cruz Bicycles is to make the best bicycles, and to have fun doing it. For 25 years, we’ve been doing just that, and finding unique and innovative solutions for everything from suspension design to manufacturing processes along the way. We offer great benefits that include 100% paid health, dental, and vision insurance, 401K matching, monthly employee events and major discounts on bikes and bike gear. Those parts come with the industry. We offer a relaxed working environment, local singletrack, and the opportunity to work with a group of bike enthusiasts. Those parts come with the territory. We offer a home for people who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo, to think differently, and to find the best solutions to the thorniest problems. We’re much more than ‘a company to work for; we’re a well-respected brand, we’re manufacturers of exceptional products, and we’re a family. Those parts come from Santa Cruz Bicycles.
