 Competitive salary based on experience

Where can you find hundreds of cafes, wiener schnitzel, and entertainment ranging from the uber-posh Opera Ball to the fabulously flamboyant LGBT Life Ball? Why, in the same city that is the birthplace of Mozart and consistently ranks as the best place in the world to live: say hello to vivacious Vienna!

If your hometown isn’t nestled between gorgeous vineyards and jaw-dropping palaces, maybe it’s time to see what our client has to offer. As one of the largest product and price comparison platforms in German-speaking countries, they know all about finding the best products at a price that would make Mozart shout, “Wunderbar!” They want to find a Perl programmer who thrives on delivering quality content, well-executed user information that’s easy to understand, and is as committed to transparency and excellence as they are.

All work and no play would have made even Mozart a dull boy; fortunately, there are tons of fun things to do when you clock out. Their cultural scene is legendary, with many concerts, exhibitions, and productions throughout the year. Whether you’re after a day of museums or a tour through one of Vienna’s ultra-lavish palaces, there’s plenty to see and do.

No doubt a weekend of strolling through history will leave you with a mighty appetite during the work week. Not to worry—your new employer has thought of that. Team members are provided with delicious and nutritious lunch options every day, all completely on the house. Think of it: the extra time you would have spent packing a sack lunch is now prime sleep-in time.

So, if you’re interested, send us an email and say _auf Wiedersehen _to your current job!

Skills and Experience
