Fancy an all-inclusive trip to The Perl Conference next year*?
Canary Wharf, London, UK (see more)
£50,000–£70,000 GBP /year
I attend a lot of Perl conferences and it’s always interesting to see which employers are well-represented with a lot of delegates and which employers have little or no presence. This company is up there among the most prominently represented at a number of the European conferences, and shows a real commitment to staying at the cutting edge of Perl. In-house, the focus on training and development continues with a strong mentorship programme – a large number of their Senior Developers started there in Junior roles.
They are looking for Mid/Senior-level developers to join their large, forward-thinking team in London. The right candidate will have experience with Modern Perl technologies such as Mojolicious, Dancer, or DBIx::Class and be keen to stay at the forefront of emerging Perl technologies. And, remember – this role may be your ticket to enjoying The Perl Conference next year without spending a penny of your own money*!

Skills and Experience
The client is interested in anyone with experience building web apps in Perl, using one of the major Perl frameworks. If you’re a crack-hand with Catalyst, a Mojolicious master, or a distinguished Dance, they want you. You’ll be deploying apps your work to AWS, so experience would be handy, and the company’s big on testing, so they’d like you to know your way around Test::More.
About the Client
The company makes software that’s literally crucial to keeping recruitment running worldwide. Any time you see a job ad on an online job board in the UK, there’s a 80% chance it went through this company’s servers. Their client list includes virtually every large recruitment agency, every small recruitment agency, and they handle the recruitment software needs of Boeing, Pepsi, and Hilton.
The company is a small company with a lot of personality, owned by a (much) larger company with a lot of financial fire-power – all the best bits of working for a small and agile company with all the reassurance that comes from being part of a big group
- You’ll start with 25 days holiday a year, but that’ll rise by a day every year you’re there, up to 30; plus of course, all Bank Holidays and National Holidays
- Private health benefits, dental, eyecare and well-being subsidies, as well as life and disability benefits, and a personal pension with the company matching up to 3%
- Beautiful, modern offices that look out over the water in Canary Wharf; sunset over the water is something pretty special
