Pack your bags…

The last few years have been sorely lacking in adventure. When your biggest thrill is a masked-up trip to the grocery store, you know life has taken a turn for the mundane. Sure, we had non-stop news about the pandemic to keep us entertained, but what about seeing new places? Meeting new people? Trying different foods and seeing amazing sites?

Clever folks know that if you’re lucky, you can earn a living and have an adventure at the same time. Enter our international client: online trading is their game, and — well, we won’t reveal their name just yet, but suffice to say you’ve probably heard of them. Their star is rising so fast it’s just a bright blur across Dubai, Malaysia, and Malta, where their offices are located. They’re looking for senior Perl developers who want to explore Dubai’s souks, eat their way through Malaysia’s restaurants, and dive headlong into Malta’s brilliant blue waters. Boring Bobs and Burnt-out Betties need not apply — they’re looking for folks with passion, drive, and an appreciation for new experiences.

Their ideal person has 10 – 20 years of experience with Perl. No old-school Perl here, however. Think adaptable, modern Perl. Living, breathing, and full of zest, just like you. You’ll have the know-how and hands-on expertise to solve problems as they arise, and you’ll be eager to mentor less-experienced developers to follow in your footsteps. While remote work may be an option for select candidates, their ideal person is dying to have an adventure in a glamorous new locale. They’ve got a work-sponsored visa and relocation package, making it easier than you’d think to pull up stakes and move to one of their head offices.

There are hundreds of reasons why you should apply for this role, but here’s the only one you need to know: adventure is calling. Will you answer?

Skills and Experience

Looking for Perl developers with a strong background in Modern Perl – you should be comfortable with Moose and PSGI/Plack, and a solid grounding in using Perl’s testing tools.

About the Client

Our client is an online financial services company, still rapidly expanding after 20 years of impressive growth. With a truly international presence, they’re well known globally in their niche. They have a deep commitment to Perl, and their CTO is one of CPAN’s most prolific authors.


Client is willing to sponsor visa for suitable candidates

Why Apply with Perl Careers?

Some of our clients you may already be familiar with, and some you'll have never heard of. But in our opinion, you're always best off applying through Perl Careers. Why?

  • We'll work with you to make sure your CV / résumé is the strongest it can be before we submit it; we know what our clients are looking for, and we'll work with you to make sure your most relevant experience is highlighted;
  • We can chase your application and argue your case in a way that would look pushy if you did it; we have strong relationships with our clients, they trust our advice, and we talk to them very frequently;
  • We have the same interest in getting a great salary as you do; our remuneration is based on a percentage of your starting salary, and we know how much the client is willing to pay -- we do a lot of negotiation behind the scenes.


It won't shock you to know that we know these are complicated and confusing times, and so do our clients. Bearing that in mind, there'll be a lot of flexibility with how your new role comes together.
