DENVER — E-scooters are more popular than ever in downtown Denver, but who maintains and charges them?

Denver7 wanted to know who is responsible for picking up the 1,200 e-scooters around the Denver area, re-charging them and placing them back on the sidewalks.

Turns out, companies like Lime and Bird hire outside companies to manage their scooters. Sometimes, they hire juicers — people looking for extra cash who can make between $5 and $20 per scooter they pick up, charge and return — to do the job.

Does that sound like something you'd be interested in? You can learn more about the job by visiting your favorite e-scooter company's website to see if they are hiring.
