BIG opportunities in a small town atmosphere.
Being Colorado's 5th largest city means Lakewood offers a myriad of career and advancement opportunities for its team members. Yet, while there are 145,000 residents, Lakewood has a distinct small town feel that translates to a workstyle and lifestyle that’s second to none.
Speaking of lifestyle, Lakewood is in nature’s backyard, with golf courses, parks, biking and hiking trails, fishing, and even camping all within city limits. Plus, world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheater, skiing and the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains is just up the road. Feeling in an urban mood? Some of the region’s most unique shopping and entertainment is right here in Lakewood, as well as a thriving arts and cultural scene. And if you want to go really “big,” the light rail can whisk you into downtown Denver in no time.
