You’ve got a machine that builds the perfect job. You start with the basics: Perl programmer, check. Located in the UK, check. Next, add the action and excitement of a start-up with the stability of an established organization. Toss in some juicy perks like regular Hacker Days and the chance to work remotely as much as you want, and here comes your ideal career!

Our client is an international company whose servers host more than 80% of the UK’s job adverts. With over 5 million ads posted each month across 186 countries, they are the place to be for employers, job seekers, and recruiters. It’s no wonder they attract a roster of A-list clients!

Perl programmers, lean in — this is the opportunity for you if your happy place is at home in your fuzzy bunny slippers. The role is 100% remote friendly for those located in the UK, so kick back and enjoy your commute-free existence.

This company offers the perfect blend of creativity and process. They’ve been around long enough to know what they’re doing, but they thrive on innovation and aren’t stuck doing things the same way just because that’s how it was done before. You’ll have the opportunity to try new things, particularly on Hacker Days, where programmers have the chance to work on features of their choice.

What do you say, Perl pals — does this sound like the job for you? If you’re ready to make the move to a thriving company with fab vibes and great perks, send us your CV now!

Skills and Experience

The client is interested in anyone with experience building web apps in Perl, using one of the major Perl frameworks. If you’re a crack-hand with Catalyst, a Mojolicious master, or a distinguished Dance, they want you. You’ll be deploying apps your work to AWS, so experience would be handy, and the company’s big on testing, so they’d like you to know your way around Test::More.

About the Client

The company makes software that’s literally crucial to keeping recruitment running worldwide. Any time you see a job ad on an online job board in the UK, there’s a 80% chance it went through this company’s servers. Their client list includes virtually every large recruitment agency, every small recruitment agency, and they handle the recruitment software needs of Boeing, Pepsi, and Hilton.


  • The company is a small company with a lot of personality, owned by a (much) larger company with a lot of financial fire-power – all the best bits of working for a small and agile company with all the reassurance that comes from being part of a big group

  • You’ll start with 25 days holiday a year, but that’ll rise by a day every year you’re there, up to 30; plus of course, all Bank Holidays and National Holidays
  • Private health benefits, dental, eyecare and well-being subsidies, as well as life and disability benefits, and a personal pension with the company matching up to 3%
  • Beautiful, modern offices that look out over the water in Canary Wharf; sunset over the water is something pretty special
