Good things come in small packages …

Imagine a place known for its stunning Mediterranean coastline, famous for its festivals, and so welcoming that locals are often called “some of the nicest people in the world.” Now imagine that you can trade your current home base for one that’s chock-a-block with history, incredible cuisine, and postcard-worthy views around every corner. Too good to be true? Only if you don’t read on!

At only 316 square kilometers, Malta is one of Europe’s most petite countries. Looks like the adage is true—good things do come in small packages! Malta is famous for its festas, local festivals held throughout the summer to honour each village’s patron saint with fireworks, food stands, and parties. This pint-sized paradise has some of the oldest architecture in the world, incredible hikes that take you along their gorgeous coastline, and a vibrant cultural scene. And here’s the best part: our client is looking for a few good Perl Developers to join their team in Malta!

Our client is a financial company whose growth over the last twenty years has been nothing short of impressive. They started with the idea that online trading should be available to all, and from there, they’ve built a company with multiple locations worldwide. If you want to be part of a business that is thriving, this may be the perfect opportunity for you.

The toughest part about moving to Malta will be deciding which of your winter clothes to get rid of first, because temperatures never drop below zero. English is an official language, and all government documents are offered in English, so the transition to life in Malta will be as easy as slipping on a pair of sandals. Healthcare in your new home is unbelievably affordable, though with all the hiking and swimming you’ll be doing, we’re sure you’re going to be fit as a fiddle.

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. Their Malta office is close to the airport, and a short drive to Malta’s other scenic citties, like Valetta and St Julians.

Benefits

Client is willing to sponsor visa for suitable candidates

Why Apply with Perl Careers?
