Kyle Kerley

I'm Kyle Kerley, owner of KLK Code LLC

Are you looking for an honest, dependable, trustworthy front end developer for your next WordPress or other web development project? I’m located in beautiful Denver, CO and bring over a decade of experience in web development, email marketing, and client services to the table.

I believe in building clean, solid sites with excellent usability and accessibility. I believe in keeping up with the latest and greatest advancements in technology and development, but only using them when they make sense. I believe in adding features/functionality/technologies that answer a question or provide a necessary service–not just for the sake of adding it to say a site has it.

I’ve worked for large, global agencies, smaller regional agencies, as well as one-on-one with clients, and I’ve been an independent contractor and freelancer since July 2017. I quit my agency job because I was tired of constantly battling egos that thought it was more important to “win” whatever internal discussion was being had than to listen to the other professionals in the room and compromise when necessary in order to do what was best for clients and their customers. I want to do what’s best for you and because of that, I offer fast, friendly service at reasonable rates without obnoxious agency overhead.

Expertise offered

I’m always improving upon and expanding my skill set; I’m always pushing myself to be better than yesterday. I don’t shy away from new challenges, but instead embrace them and learn on the fly. As a full-stack developer and having worked at many agencies of varying sizes, I’ve had experience with a wide array of development-related projects.

These services (and any other you require) are available for one-off freelance projects or ongoing long-term (1099) contracts. Please note: I do NOT do design. I’m comfortable with Photoshop but leave creative design to design professionals and work with a number of excellent designers should your project need it.

Career experience

I’ve worked on teams as large as 27 people for a single client down to being the sole point of contact for all account management, development, and quality assurance.

I’ve worked for numerous large companies and agencies in both Milwaukee, WI and Denver, CO which has allowed me to experience client management and development from many unique perspectives.

I’m a friendly, outgoing, motivated self-starter who prefers to dive headfirst into new projects and I’m as capable on my own as I am in larger team settings. I adapt quickly to meet my clients’ needs so I can provide the best service possible!

Building and maintaining client relationships

Relationships wither and die when communication is lacking. That’s why I take communication very seriously. If you decide to work with me, expect thorough, timely, and substantive updates along with questions for clarification to ensure I’m doing everything exactly as you want it throughout the entire time we work together.

From managing client communications, to doing full site rebuilds, to creating marketing email streams and strategies, no project or client is too big or too small! I have experience working with global juggernauts as well as small mom-and-pop shops and would be happy to work with your organization regardless of size!

The logos below showcase some of the more notable clients I’ve worked on/with in some capacity over the years. Please note that their display does not imply or assume any endorsement of Kyle Kerley or KLK Code LLC. They are for historical and illustrative purposes only.

Fun fact: If you received emails from Bassmaster, Blockbuster,, DirecTV, eBay, GMACI,, HP, NAPA Auto Parts, Royal Caribbean, Samsung, Sport Chalet, TGI Friday’s, US Auto Parts, or Wendy’s from 2010-2014, there’s a very good chance I built, QA’d, and sent it.

Past project successes

Pushing boundaries and finding creative new ways to enhance and expand user experience is something I strive for. I truly believe that websites need to be fluid and flexible—not only in terms of how they behave at various resolutions, but also during the design and development process.

Websites and their owners must be adaptable and open to changes that might not be part of the approved design or original vision but make the most sense for great user experience.

Final cost

My prices may seem high but I charge less than half the amount even the cheapest agency I've worked for charges for building websites. I came to these prices and rates after careful consideration of my experiences working for more than 7 years at numerous agencies. The quoted amounts reflect the level of effort required to produce a quality product. I may be more expensive than other freelancers but the quality of my work speaks for itself.

The final estimated price is:
