News You Can Use!

We’ve got word from a confidential source that there’s a great role coming available for the right person. The company is dialed-in to all things new and modern in the tech world, they offer the option to work from home or from their London office, and they have a small team that enjoys a lot of autonomy. If you want the scoop on this plum role, read on!

The company is a leading online tech publication with over 40 million readers all over the world. They delve into a broad range of topics like software and hardware, cloud services, AI, electronics, culture, and space, just to name a few. With all those fascinating stories floating around, you can bet there will be some interesting conversations with your teammates around the proverbial water cooler! Although, with the option to work remotely, the water cooler chat may move online, which is better—who even huddles around a water cooler anymore?

So, you’re at home in your jams, ready to work—but what are you doing? Great question. The client is looking for a SysAdmin-meets-DevOps guy or gal to work on their Debian-based Linux systems, and their Perl, Bash, and Linux tooling. You’ll bump up the automation of their deployment systems so tech and ad-ops teams can go live in less time than it takes to say “print is dead.”

Once you’ve supercharged the deployment systems, you’ll tweak server build scripts, document and apply backup and restore procedures, monitor servers and their logs, keep systems current with software updates, and generally ensure that the online news keeps running like a well-oiled printing press. You’ll fit right in if you enjoy writing your own tools using Perl, Bash, HTML, CSS, JS, and a little elbow grease.

Listen, our confidential source tells us that this position won’t last so if you’re interested, put pen to paper (or better yet, fingers to keyboard) and let us know why you’re the right fit for this tech publication titan!

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.
