*KL&A is currently hiring for both hybrid and fully remote positions.*

Who We Are:

KL&A is an IT consulting firm that knocks the socks off our clients. We work closely with organizations across the United States to develop creative business solutions through project & program management and custom software applications so they can focus on what’s most important…their mission.

We are honored to be named a Top Workplace by the Detroit Free Press for six consecutive years! Here at KL&A, we love what we do and believe that our employees are our greatest asset which is why we search for the best and brightest (and perhaps the most caffeinated) of the bunch. This is why our employees have the opportunity to work in an environment of their choosing: whether in the dynamic office environment, in your PJ bottoms at home, or a combination of the two.

Who You Are:

You love developing creative solutions that solve customers’ needs and enhance their user experience. You elevate those around you by sharing your knowledge of software patterns and coaching team members on best practices. You’re able to communicate and share your expertise through a variety of methods to audiences of all skill levels. With a keen eye for understanding and unraveling complex business problems, you apply your technical expertise to provide consultative solutions that align with our clients' strategic goals. You’re a natural collaborator, welcoming ideas from any source and are able to build on them to make the team successful. Writing quality code is important to you, as well as creating and implementing challenging UX designs and instrumenting performance improvements. You thrive when solving perplexing technical problems and have fun developing applications that focus on functionality, appearance, and quality.

About the Role:

As a Software Engineer at KL&A, you will embrace solving complex technical problems and implementing creative solutions that are eye-catching and functional while also being efficient and scalable. You’ll program in modern HTML, CSS, and Javascript frameworks to solve front end problems and leverage Microsoft technologies to build scalable, robust backend solutions, emphasizing advanced database integration. You will work on a large, complex, and challenging project within an agile software development environment. But your reach doesn’t stop there; you will also have the opportunity to set standards and patterns that will be used by projects throughout the organization. Your collaboration with our team of expert engineers, seasoned business analysts, and client stakeholders will result in applications that have an exceptional user experience from start to finish.
