A Recipe for Success

In a world gone topsy-turvy, we have to appreciate the simple pleasures. Chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven, for instance. Or for that matter, semi-stale cookies out of the bag. Turns out we’re less picky about our biscuit choices, but one thing is for sure: a good recipe is the difference between a ho-hum snack and a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate extravaganza. We can’t share the family cookie recipe (Mum would kill us) but we CAN share our latest client’s recipe for success.

As an online tech publication with over 40 million readers around the world, they know a thing or two about keeping it fresh. Always on the cutting edge, their writers discourse on software, hardware, space, cloud services, culture, and electronics. Basically, they’re experts on all the cool stuff you want to know about, so why not join them? They might even throw in a few complimentary snacks.

While the client operates out of a London office, you also have the option to work remotely. Just think: in between managing their software projects from beginning to end, you could have your own tray of treats baking in the oven. A midday snack sounds like a great way to stay on task, which will be important because this small team only has room for self-starters who work solo as well as they work in a group.

So, besides baking up a storm, what will you be doing? Working as a Perl developer, you’ll be responsible for consultation, design, development, testing, and deployment. While the snacks cool, you’ll primarily use back-end Perl code on Debian servers with a smattering of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript thrown in for flavour.

Got your mouth watering? If so, shoot us an email and let us know; there might just be a biscuit in it for you.
