Escape London -- Mid-to-Senior Perl Developers in the Midlands (visa sponsorship a possibility)

Job ref: OSC162
Location: West Midlands, UK
Salary: Depending on experience

Varied role solving real business problems for clients, working with open source software all day - in one of the few places in the UK a house is still affordable.

Client has been a long-term supporter of Perl development, and the technical team is headed up by a very well-known figure in the community. Development stack is a hybrid of a strong Modern Perl stack and more legacy code.

Ideally the team is looking for more menders:

Menders love refactoring, or editing code to enhance clarity. Bug fixes genuinely excite them and they get a little giddy about testing.

Developer Differences: Makers vs Menders

Team is hiring a couple of developers, and while they have their seniority preferences, would love to talk to anyone talented who’s avoiding moving to (or indeed, looking to escape) London…

Also: the company is in a position to sponsor workers without an existing right to work in the UK; assuming they are already in, or able to easily get themselves to, the UK for interview.
