Some people work for a paycheque, but not you. For you, it’s more than that. You take pride in your work. You go the extra mile not because there’s a carrot or a stick, but because that’s who you are. And if that’s who you are, lean in, because our client wants to talk to you.

A titan of premium native advertising, our client dominates the field in sectors like tech, business, financial services, and lifestyle technology. They have over 150 partner websites ranging from Reuters, Guardian, MSN, and Telegraph, and with a dazzling array of tools in their arsenal, they use promotional panels, email campaigns, and contextual links to deliver strong leads for providers that are the forefront of their industry.

As a company at the top of their game, they are looking for a Perl developer who is similarly eager to be the best. You’ll thrive in an environment where you work independently and in teams, and you enjoy writing code with a variety of languages. Your knowledge of JS and experience with frameworks like React will round out your understanding of MySQL and NoSQL databases like Google BigTable. Using server side code, client side code, databases, and websites, you’ll develop their software platform to connect with almost 350 million consumers worldwide. Talk about reach!

If you’re excited to prove your mettle with some of the best, email your CV today and tell us why you’re the only choice for this role!
