It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s YOU!

Superman is great, but he was born with his abilities. And yeah, Batman isn’t unnaturally strong or leaping buildings in a single bound but as one of Gotham’s richest, most eligible bachelors, he’s not exactly Joe Everyman. Even Peter Parker got bit by a radioactive spider. Forget superheroes — the real stars are the guys and gals working for our client to keep money in the pockets of consumers.

Online shopping is ridiculously easy — until you start trying to compare prices from one site to the next. Suddenly there’s an Apple watch there for 10 Euros less than on the first site, but then there’s another site where it’s half-off; is that one even legit? Our client takes the legwork out of the hunt for the best bargain, offering one of the largest product and price comparison platforms in German-speaking countries. They’re looking for a heroic Perl programmer to develop and deliver quality content and all the info users need to find their gadgets for the right price.

Headquarters for this dynamic team of cape-free crusaders is dazzling Vienna, Austria. By day you’ll fight high prices and e-commerce pitfalls but by night, the city is yours to explore. From opera to art installations to exhibitions and dance clubs, Vienna is a hotbed of culture and activity. Take time to learn the Vienna waltz, eat a Vienna sausage, and dive into a city that is consistently ranked among the best places in the world to live.

Our client takes saving money seriously — so seriously, in fact, that they provide their employees with daily free lunch offerings. With a scrumptious healthy spread on offer, you’re saving money on groceries or lunches out, leaving you with more moola to pay for your Vienna waltz dance instructor.

The team is ready to add another Perl programmer to their ranks. Are you in? Let us know you’re the hero we’re looking for. Apply now!

Skills and Experience
