About

Perl Careers is a Perl-focused recruitment consultancy, run by me, Peter Sergeant.

I’m a CPAN and GitHub contributor, and BackPan tells me that when Jan 1st 2000 rolled around, I uploaded a Perl module to the CPAN instead of recovering from a hangover like most normal 17 year olds. I ran London’s largest Perl team when I was CTO at Broadbean Technology, I’ve worked as a Perl contractor at companies like the BBC, the Guardian, and NET-A-PORTER, and I’ve been an active part of the Perl community for somewhere between 15 and 20 years.

If you’re hiring Perl developers, and you work with me, you’ll be getting the benefit of my extensive network of friends, former coworkers, open-source collaborators and contacts in the UK, the US, and the EU. Many of the developers I place are people I’ve worked with before as a coworker, or have line-managed during my career.

If you’re a Perl developer yourself, and you work with me, generally I can give you an indepth cultural and technical overview of a company you’re thinking of working with, help advise you on salary expectations, and help you make sure your CV or resume are most likely to land you an interview.

I’ve been a Perl programmer for almost 20 years, took time off high-school to speak at the first YAPC in Europe, and to reassure you that if you’re a Perl developer, or you’re hiring Perl developers, you’re in the right place!
