You’ve just bought the PlayStation 5. It’s sleek, it’s sexy, it cost half your paycheck but it’s worth it. You can’t wait to tell your friends about your shiny new toy… until your buddy Mark says he just bought the PS5 for 50 Euros less. Sure, you both have the latest gaming system, but unlike you, Mark has money for snacks and pizza while he plays. Want to stop this tragedy from happening to others? So does our client!

Prices can vary wildly from site to site and shop to shop, which is where out client comes in. As one of the largest product and price comparison platforms in German-speaking countries, they share your dedication to finding consumers the best possible deal on electronics, technology, household appliances, and gaming systems. Best of all, they’re looking for a Perl programmer whose love of saving money is matched only by their ability to deliver high-quality content and well-executed user information.

So, you’re ready to combat the scourge of overpaying. Where do you go from here? That’s the best part: this role is located in culture-rich Vienna, Austria! When you’re not protecting the wallets of German speakers everywhere, you’ll have a smorgasbord of cafes, museums, restaurants, concerts, and exhibitions to attend. Other cool things about Vienna: they are consistently rated one of the best places to live, they’re known for their arts scene, and they’re the birthplace of wiener schnitzel.

Mmm. Wiener schnitzel. Are you getting hungry, too? Good news: one perk of your new role is daily lunch offerings. Delicious, nutritious, and free! See? You’re saving money already. Feels good, doesn’t it? Makes you want to get on board.

Interested in joining these frugal friends in Vienna? If you’re ready to show Mark he’s not the only one making smart decisions, apply now!
