Looking for your first real programming job? Junior role for a hobbyist PHP or JavaScript developer interested in Perl

Job ref: OSC240 - Location: Oxford - Salary: Very generous for a first job

Are you a graduate or school-leaver with some programming knowledge, who wants to take their first step into a programming career? My Oxford-based client are a very successful SaaS business willing to take on and mentor promising junior programmers whose programming experience has so far just been a hobby or a programming bootcamp.

Based near Oxford train station, the team’s codebase is modern and shows off many cutting-edge and proven technologies. Their primary development language is Perl, a multi-paradigm programming language in use everywhere from search engines to startups.

As a new member of the team, you’ll be expected to be self-starting. You’ll need some non-commercial programming experience - maybe you’ve written PHP or JavaScript for fun or as part of your own website. You should also be familiar with the basics of databases and have a firm conceptual grasp of how the Internet works. Beyond that, you’ll get a chance to join a strong development team and get some years of proper, high-end, and modern development under your belt as the first step in your programming career.

This job is no longer officially open, but see below for how to register your interest in roles like this, and be told as if the company reopens hiring.
