How’s your karma?

You could spend your days helping little old ladies cross the street to improve your karma… or you could take this role with a golden-hearted organization that boosts your karma while you get paid.

Our client is a multinational fundraising group that works with thousands of charities to provide cloud-based management tools, a dedicated social fundraising platform, and a secure channel for charities to receive funds. With operations in the UK, Switzerland, USA, Canada, and South Africa, the karmic good times span the globe and encompass everything from small local initiatives to mass participation events like the Boston Marathon.

Currently, this organization is seeking two Perl developers. One position is for a senior Perl developer, the other is for a mid-level, and while the roles are similar, there are a few key differences:

· The senior developer must have automated payment experience with a minimum of 8 years of Perl experience coding back-end and front-end systems. You’ll have strong experience with payment networks, systems, and bank file formats like. ISO 20022, SWIFT MT940/942 and NACHA ACH. Don’t forget your superpowers with Unix/Linux and shell scripts!

· The ideal mid-level developer will have automated payment experience as well, but if your Perl game is on point and you have an interest in payment systems, we still want to hear from you. You’ll also have a minimum of 4 years of Perl experience coding back-end and front-end systems, experience with systems like credit card, Faster Payments, and UK Open Banking, and experience with testing like Test::Harness, Test::More, and Test::Most.

This role is open to remote workers who live in one of the countries mentioned above. An important note for karma kids in North America: work time flexibility will be important as this company has yet to establish a physical presence in Canada or the US.

About the Client

Our client helps charities fund-raise online, and manages online payments systems for landlords. With every commit, you’ll be helping to funnel market to charities and making renting property just that little bit easier. We regularly bump into the company’s programmers at dev conferences, and their developers are well-known in the open-source community for their contributions to projects.

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.
