Bring more Modern Perl to a properly agile team in Manchester (and learn NodeJS)

Job ref: OSC229
Location: Manchester
Salary: Very good

Successful and established team about to undergo an large expansion looking for Perl developers at every level of experience, from school leaver to Larry Wall.

As part of their expansion, and having mastered continuous delivery and Scrum in a way that works primarily for rather than against developers, the team is looking for Perl developers to support a move towards a more API-centric approach. The team’s upcoming focus on bringing their product to international markets will need to be supported by developers who want to grow along with the company – both technically and managerially – and who have an interest in getting stuck into difficult problems like internationalisation.

The team loves Perl, and has a real depth of Perl talent, but know that some services benefit from other stacks – most recently they’ve been experimenting with NodeJS, so either experience or an interest in learning would be beneficial. As you’d expect from a long-established business who are still improving their product daily, the codebase itself is a mixture of older and newer code, but with technical management who are very keen to embrace Modern Perl.

Fundamentally the team values people who are looking to make a difference, and who want to push small changes that improve their customers’ experience, day after day.

The team works flexible hours, and while some onsite in Manchester is expected, for the right candidate this needn’t be an entirely onsite role.
