From Finland to the Faroe Islands, this remote role is open to senior Perl developers who are within two hours of Amsterdam’s time zone. With the freedom to work from home you can institute t-shirt Mondays, curry lunch Tuesdays, and whatever else gets you jazzed to collab with data scientists to maintain and extend our client’s AI framework.

AI, you say? You heard right! This company is a global leader in machine intelligence, and they’re looking for a Natural Language Processing (NLP) whiz who has experience maintaining and improving large Perl applications and tooling ecosystems. Working with a crew of machine learning engineers, data scientists, and DevOps engineers, you will be part of the team that designs, builds, and deploys the AI models that power their products.

What skills are they looking for? Glad you asked. Their ideal candidate:

· Has oodles of modern Perl experience

· Can develop, profile, and maintain production level applications on Linux

· Understands algorithms and datastructures

· Has an interest in web development

If you have those skills, these folks want to talk to you. In fact, they’ll sweeten the deal with loads of opportunities for personal development, an uber-diverse team representing more than 30 nationalities, and, if you’re located in Amsterdam, an office that offers free lunch, snacks, and drinks.

This might just be the new role you’ve been looking for. If you’re saying “AI-yay-yay!” with glee over this one, send us your CV and tell us why!

  • Strong Modern Perl
  • Python
