If only there were a place like Silicon Valley, but warmer …

Sure, Silicon Valley is great. They’ve got some of the world’s largest tech companies and some pretty nice offices, but do you know what else they have? Mist. Fog. Chilly weather that seeps into your clothes and makes you wish for warm, sunny days that don’t leave you shivering. If you wish you could find a tech hub without the risk of hypothermia, then why not consider the Silicon Valley of Malaysia, where the temperature is always balmy? Pack your bags—you’re on your way to Cyberjaya!

Located a short drive from Kuala Lumpur, Cyberjaya is the best of Silicon Valley. This science park is home to numerous large corporations, and is outfitted with the sort of amenities that make programmers and developers starry-eyed. No sad, dingy offices here: Cyberjaya has The Cyberjaya Lake Gardens (a 400-acre nature park), many bars and restaurants serving incredible fusion cuisine, basketball and tennis courts, swimming pool, golf driving range, and even a go-kart circuit! Does that sound like the average workplace to you?

Our client is a financial company whose growth over the last twenty years has been nothing short of impressive. They started with the idea that online trading should be available to all, and from there, they’ve built a company with multiple locations worldwide. If you want to be part of a business that is thriving, this may be the perfect opportunity for you.

The Cyberjaya office is looking for Perl developers with a strong exposure to Modern Perl – you’ll be comfortable with Plack/PSGI, Moose, and writing tests.

Cyberjaya is a town unto itself—they’ve even got their own post-secondary institution, the Multimedia University—and there’s plenty to do there. However, you may not have time to see it all, because on weekends you’ll certainly want to take advantage of the travel possibilities. Air Asia’s home airport is only a short distance from Cyberjaya, so you’ll have plenty of fun, exciting travel destinations at your doorstep. Why settle for takeout Thai at home when you could fly to Bangkok for dinner out on Friday night?

Ready to trade your 9-to-5 for an exciting new role in the Silicon Valley of Malaysia? Then tune up your go-kart, grab the kids, and start your application!
