Largest Perl team in London with beautiful Docklands offices
Canary Wharf, London, UK (see more)
£50,000–£70,000 GBP /year
Large, dynamic Perl team in Canary Wharf looking for mid-level and senior developers. Run by a Perl-loving CTO in beautiful offices with a great view over Canary Wharf, the company manages one legacy Perl codebase and a whole bunch of very new, very shiny, and very modern codebases that power the market-leading solution in their particular area. Free breakfast, too, for some values of breakfast.
The company has a number of big-data and data analysis projects, and have bet heavily on AWS, for everything from autoscaling to Redshift. They use a variety of Modern Perl technologies across their projects, with codebases using Mojo, Dancer, DBIx::Class, and regularly send developers to YAPC.
The company has maintained its small company feel, despite being bought a few years ago by a much larger company, and the office is super-friendly and supportive.
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
