Brief Job Description:

The Boston Transportation Department (BTD) is seeking a highly motivated person who can  work creatively to lead the implementation of an e-bike rebate pilot program. 

Reporting to the Commissioner or designee, the E-Bike Program Manager will be responsible for developing, executing, and evaluating a pilot program to offer certain Boston residents rebates on the purchase of e-bikes at local retail locations. Further, the  Program Manager will support the growing community of e-bike riders (and those curious about  e-bikes) in every Boston neighborhood through programming and partnerships. The selected  individual will also be expected to liaise with colleagues doing similar work in other government  agencies locally, within the Commonwealth, and across the nation. 

This position requires familiarity and experience with community outreach, public engagement,  coordinating between a wide variety of interests, and establishing meaningful connections with  populations historically underrepresented in planning processes. The right person for this  position will be someone who is independent, self-driven, and excited about bicycling in the  City. 


  • Researches and communicates best practices and lessons learned from similar programs offered nationally and internationally. 
  • Builds strong relationships with local bike retailers, the disability community, Boston’s  population of older adults, and other community partners. 
  • Collaborates with City agencies and departments to develop a user-friendly application  and payment system for both retailers and residents. 
  • Communicates the vision for biking and, specifically, e-bikes in Boston to a general  audience. 
  • Generates interest and excitement through programmatic offerings, including but not  limited to creating digital and print promotional materials, convening conversation  groups, hosting “bike rodeos” and “petting zoos”, organizing bike riding workshops and  group rides, presenting at community meetings, and tabling at community events. 
  • Establishes programs in coordination with the Age Strong Commission, the Mayor's Commission for Persons with Disabilities, and others as appropriate. 
  • Aides in the procurement and ongoing oversight of an external research partner to  evaluate the pilot program. 
  • Performs related work as required. 

Minimum Entrance Qualifications:

  • Four (4) years of relevant experience as a community organizer or doing  substantially similar work, including some experience with the management of programs  and services.
  • A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with  specialization in urban planning, public space design, community engagement, public  administration, or related field is highly preferred.
  • A master’s degree in a field listed  above may be substituted for three (3) year of the required experience.
  • Demonstrated ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with peers, superiors, and public and private representatives. 
  • Ability to lead, strategize, and problem solve. 
  • Demonstrated ability to communicate effectively orally and in writing. 
  • Demonstrated ability to work with limited direct supervision and perform assigned duties  in an accurate, timely and professional manner. 
  • Strong customer service skills, including rapid and quality follow-through.
  • Commitment to furthering the City’s sustainability, safety, and equity goals.
  • Proficiency in Microsoft applications, and Google Suite.
  • Additional language proficiency in one of the City of Boston’s top ten commonly  requested language accommodations is preferred.
  • Ability to exercise good judgement and focus on detail as required by the job.
