Legwork Studio

Web Developer

Type of work: Full-Time
Location: United States
Date Posted: September 17th, 2012

Legwork is looking for an accomplished, experienced and creative JavaScript developer. You should be capable of producing work that is commensurate with our portfolio. And, perhaps, let us know what we could do to improve our approach. We provide competitive salaries and a flexible work environment.

If you’re like us and want to cut the red tape, let’s get to it. Please send a cover letter with a link to your Github repository and/or portfolio. Resumes are optional.



Legwork is looking for an industry leading web developer to join our team in Denver, CO. Our office is just south of downtown on Broadway among some of Denverʼs best venues, galleries, bars and restaurants. Drive about 20 minutes west and you’re in the mountains.

Here are links to some projects we’ve completed this year:

Weʼre looking for someone to own their projects. We value passion, innovation and attention to detail above everything else. Weʼre looking for someone strong in JavaScript, HTML and CSS, but any Rails, design, Flash or backend experience is a plus. You should be comfortable enough with jQuery to write a plugin. At a minimum, you should have:

- Expert knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript
- Expert knowledge of cross-browser development and responsive design
- Experience in version control systems (We use Github)
- Assess possibilities and obstacles early on in projects

Even better:

- Experience with Ruby on Rails and/or PHP
- Deep knowledge of HTML5 elements such as Canvas, WebGL, etc.
- Experience using Pivotal Tracker


Our main goal is to provide an amazing work environment for a world class team. We’ll give you the opportunity to work on innovative projects for national brands. We set the bar in work place flexibility, if your work is done and you are available when we need you, the rest us up to you. We give all the normal paid holidays. Weʼll give you two additional weeks off, plus all of the days between Christmas and New Yearʼs. We trust you, so weʼll keep it open ended on personal days. Weʼll provide a hot new iMac or Macbook Pro for you to work on. We offer a competitive benefits package. Good work and extra effort donʼt go unnoticed here.

Salary is competitive and commensurate with your experience. If youʼre not in Denver and we like your stuff, weʼll make accommodations for you to join us here for an interview. We need you to be in and able to work in the United States though.

How to apply:

We value excellent communication skills, so please include a cover letter with a link to your repository or portfolio. Resumes are fine but not necessary. Please contact us at:
