Citi Bike is all sorts of terrible things, they some crazy people say, but it is quite the jobs creator. The ever-embattled bike share program’s got lots of open positions available in Brooklyn, from checkers to dispatchers to “outreach ambassadors,” so screw all those college kids who got full time jobs before they even graduated, eh? We’ve rounded up a few other available gigs that are ripe for the picking, too, so you can spend summer fighting your landlord for lower rent money in financial peace.

As previously mentioned, Citi Bike is looking to fill a number of positions in Brooklyn. They need Outreach Ambassadors to  help promote the program in neighborhoods with access to it; bike checkers to maintain and clean bikes; and bike mechanics to make solid repairs when those suckers break down. All jobs require intimate knowledge of the NYC cycling scene and the basics of bike repair.

Disney parenting website Babble is looking for a social media manager to work their social media platforms. Applicants should have 1 year of experience in reporting and analysis and know how to work Facebook Ads, WordPress, Advanced Excel and other marketing tools. 

Brainteaser and trivia site Mental Floss is looking for a contributing features editor to write pieces for their bimonthly print magazine, and conceptualize, assign, and edit features for both the site and the magazine, as well. The work is freelance and can be done remotely, but the gig is paid, with some editing experience necessary.

Online design mecca Apartment Therapy is looking for a graphic designer to work on their website. The work is full time, and they do ask that you have experience working on commercial, digital advertising projects and creating ad banners. But think of all the cool photos you get to look at!

Internet troublemakers ANIMAL are looking for an intern, but what sets this apart from the pack is that you get paidddd. They need one intern on the editorial side and one on the video side. You’ll be writing posts or shooting video and don’t need to be in school, but they also don’t want any cowards.. They were very specific about that.

The Brooklyn Public Library needs a literacy advisor to help guide their Adult Learning Programs. Applicants should have 1-2 years of experience working with adult literacy instruction and may have to work evenings and Saturdays.

And finally, the Brooklyn Museum needs an Associate Manager of Visitor Services. Duties would include managing the Visitor Center staff, dealing with visitor signage, coordinating the production of visitor publications and staffing Target First Saturdays, among other things. The position does require “significant experience” in in arts administration, marketing and branding and customer services, and you should have had at least one prior job working in a museum. But the position is full-time and salaried, and they are hiring immediately.
