Have you ever seen those build-a-bear kiosks in the mall? You choose the components and watch your furry friend take shape. Now imagine a kiosk where you’re building your perfect job, because that’s exactly what our latest role offers!

Let’s start with the body. You’re a senior Perl developer — if that’s you, you’ve already got the most important component. Next, the other important bits: in an ideal world, you’ll have experience with most or all of Catalyst, REST, Dancer2, Moo, DBlx::Class, MySQL, Postgres, and docker. Want to add extra flair? AngularJS or Vue would take your creation to the next level.

Whew. All this building is hard work. Take a break while we tell you about our client and their chops in providing end-to-end data collection and management services. Located in Australia, they’re the go-to resource when companies want to gather, process, and analyze data to develop solutions. Much like our build-a-job kiosk, they build, host, and support their clients with a raft of tools and technologies.

All right, let’s finish strong with the head. Here’s where we can really personalize this job. Let’s make the terms flexible — say, a 9-month initial contract with 10 or so hours per week. Want more? No problem. For a local employee, full-time options abound. As to location, let’s make this role 100% remote. Within Australia would be good, and better yet if you’re near Fitzroy, but you’re not tied to one location.

Hey, this career is looking fabulous! And maybe it’s got you thinking about the career you want to build.

What does it look like? How often are you working, and from where? If you’re a senior Perl developer with the competencies listed above, this is your chance to create the job you want. Send us your CV today and tell us about your perfect role!

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. Whether that means that you start the first few months of your next job working at home, or delay relocating for a new role, we'll work with you and our clients to make sure you can start your next role safetly and in line with health advice.

Let's do this!
