Freelance Web Developer

Freelance role: Per project and/or contract

Reports to: Digital Design Director

Company Overview

Strada is a Denver-based creative agency specializing in branding, marketing and placemaking. That means we not only develop and guide brands for places such as reinvigorated downtown districts, emerging communities and, in some cases, whole new regions, we actually have a hand in creating the places themselves. It’s diverse, exciting, meaningful work. So with every position, we look for people who share our love of culture and community, our desire to make a real difference and perhaps most of all our spirit of fun, creativity and hard work. Or as we like to say: be true, have fun and do the unexpected.

One other thing you should know about us … Strada is currently a WFA (work from anywhere), remote-first company, which gives team members the opportunity to choose how and when to meet and work in the office.
