Fully Remote Remote Worker - N/A
Description


Who We Are:

We are a software development and IT consulting firm who knock the socks off our clients. We work closely with organizations to develop creative and custom software solutions so they can focus on what’s most important, their mission. 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. Which 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. P.s. We don’t mean to brag, but we’re honored to have been named a Top Workplace by the Detroit Free Press for the third year in a row.

You love developing creative solutions that solve customers’ needs and enhance their user experience. You have a knack for frontend development and are willing and eager to learn all layers of web applications.

You’re a natural collaborator, welcoming ideas from any source and working as a team to ensure they’re implemented. Writing code of both high volume and quality is important to you, and you thrive off of receiving feedback and learning from your colleagues.
