How much for an iPhone?

You’re strolling down the street, minding your own business, when a man steps out from a darkened alley. Voice lowered, he whispers, “Hey, man. You looking for a cheap iPhone? TV? Whatever you want, I got it.” Sure, you like a deal on electronics as much as the next person, but does this seem legit to you? Didn’t think so. Want to be part of the solution? Then our client wants to hear from you!

One of the largest product and price comparison platforms in German-speaking countries is on the hunt for a Perl programmer who wants to use their skills to eradicate inflated prices. The successful candidate will relish the chance to join a team that attributes nearly two decades of success to an uncompromising commitment to transparency, objectivity, user-oriented information, and quality content.

Located in picturesque Vienna, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy plenty of after-work perks like an incredible music scene, world-class culinary delights, museums on every second corner, and the intimate party scene near the Danube Canal. After a hard day’s work saving people from overpaying for their headphones, don’t you deserve to let loose with a bite to each, a pint, and a spin around the dance floor? Heck yes, you do!

During the workday, your new company still has you covered. Complimentary lunch is provided, so all those naysayers who said there was no such thing as a free lunch can go ahead and eat crow, because you’ll be dining on free-of-charge munchies during your break. Need to keep up your energy for that after-work dance party!

If you want to leave that creepy back-alley guy with his trench coat full of iPhones in the rearview, then this might be the company for you. Shoot us an email and let us know you’re interested because hey—it’s almost lunch time! And we’ve got a tasty plum of a role set aside just for you.

Skills and Experience
