Is that your Fancy Nightshirt?

Remember when going to work meant changing out of your pyjamas, leaving home, and traveling to a secondary destination where you would spend approximately eight hours of your day? … yeah, neither do we. But we’re told these things happened regularly less than a year ago, and one day, they may happen again. In the meantime, why not take a job with a company that may begin as a remote position and has the sort of staying power needed to make it through these unusual times, and have you skipping back to the office as soon as you can?

It’s hard not to notice how much of our lives have moved online in recent months. Online shopping, socializing, working—it’s a digital world now, which is perfect for our client. As an international IT company managing millions of domains for retail and corporate customers in nearly every country in the world, they’re busier than ever—and they need a few senior Perl developers to help them continue to thrive. If you have strong experience implementing APIs and love designing and developing domain software solutions, you may be just the at-home hero they need.

While their team is remote right now, this client operates out of St. Ingbert, Germany, with a satellite office in Munich. You’re housebound for now, but when the world hops back onto its axis, you’ll be eager to see their stellar offices. Let us paint a picture: a rooftop deck, table soccer and air hockey, a few pints with coworkers who sit less than six feet away … sounds idyllic, doesn’t it?

So, how do you get your slipper-clad foot in the door? If you’ve got experience with C/C++, enjoy working independently, and are a problem-solving whiz, you’ve already done the hard part. And if you’re fluent in German and English? Yes, please.

We won’t be at home forever, and when we do go back to work, wouldn’t you like to go somewhere with a rooftop deck? If the answer is “heck yes,” email us today!

Skills and Experience

The ideal candidate should be confident using Modern Perl, in particular happy with DBIx::Class and Moose/Moo. Experience with any of mod_perl, Net::Server, Ubuntu, MySQL, Elastic Search, and memcached would be advantageous.

Telecommuting Details

Onsite preferred in either Saarland or Munich, but telecommuting possible

Why Apply with Perl Careers?

Some of our clients you may already be familiar with, and some you'll have never heard of. But in our opinion, you're always best off applying through Perl Careers. Why?

  • We'll work with you to make sure your CV / résumé is the strongest it can be before we submit it; we know what our clients are looking for, and we'll work with you to make sure your most relevant experience is highlighted;
  • We can chase your application and argue your case in a way that would look pushy if you did it; we have strong relationships with our clients, they trust our advice, and we talk to them very frequently;
  • We have the same interest in getting a great salary as you do; our remuneration is based on a percentage of your starting salary, and we know how much the client is willing to pay -- we do a lot of negotiation behind the scenes.


It won't shock you to know that we know these are complicated and confusing times, and so do our clients. Bearing that in mind, there'll be a lot of flexibility with how your new role comes together. Whether that means that you start the first few months of your next job working at home, or delay relocating for a new role, we'll work with you and our clients to make sure you can start your next role safetly and in line with health advice.

Let's do this!
