Staff of Everything

In this multi-faceted role, you’ll make the gym run.

This role provides flexibility and variety, both in your duties and your schedule, and invites you to find your niche and grow in your role. If you are enthusiastic about climbing, yoga, and fitness and want to work as part of a fun-loving dynamic team, this position is for you! Learn more.

Belay Staff

If you’re looking for that super flexible side-hustle where you don’t need any art skills, you’ve come to the right place. Our team of belay staff chooses available shifts at their convenience (though we may occasionally beg you nicely to come help us out) and provide belay services for birthday parties, special events, private groups, and other activities. This position is great for anyone who wants complete control of their schedule, or who just want to be part of an awesome team! Learn more. 

Summer Camp Counselor

Shaker Rocks’ Camp Counselors are enthusiastic, encouraging and patient. They love working with kids, and aren’t afraid to get a little silly doing it. Camp Counselors lead groups of campers entering grades 1-8 through various activities—climbing and otherwise—and want to support their campers’ growth as both climbers and people. If you like kids and want to share your love of climbing, this position is for you! Learn more.

Routesetter

Routesetters at Shaker Rocks are the team that create our product: the climbing. Routesetters are enthusiastic and experienced climbers themselves, and enjoy working on a team. As a routesetter, you develop and set new bouldering and sport climbing routes each week and take care of the walls and holds; repairing, sorting, and cleaning as needed. Essentially, routesetters are the keepers of the keys to climbing—without them, we wouldn’t be much of a gym. If you are a team player who wants to bring quality climbing to the community, this role is for you! Learn more.
