Make your mark on the world without leaving your desk! All of us dream of making our mark on the world, but how many people can say that their work reaches hundreds of thousands of people? Rock stars? Check. Celebrities? Check. Chonky puppy who just can’t get down the stairs? Triple check. But what about the rest of us?

That’s where our latest client comes in. They are one of those well-known companies whose logos you see splashed across events because they are Big News in the programming world. They build the software that hosting companies use to allow their customers to build websites, which means that something you help to create will be deployed on thousands of servers used by people all over the world.

This major firm is located in Houston, Texas, but don’t worry if you’re not a local. They have a top-rate relocation program because finding talent matters to them. And what do they do once they’ve found the celebrities of the programming world? They take care of them, that’s what! Boasting a cadre of creative, dedicated employees, this company caters lunch each day so their superstars can focus on clients and not their rumbling tummies. Perks include a 401(k) matching plan, health benefits, and a chill work environment fit for a rock idol.

Perl positions are open at several levels, so whether you’re just starting out with 1-2 years of experience or a seasoned pro with a few decades under your belt, they want to hear from you. Grab a microphone, a megaphone, or shoot us an email, but whatever you do, don’t let this chance to make your mark pass you by. Your adoring public awaits!

Skills and Experience

The client’s looking for strong Perl developers, although Python and PHP developers willing to cross-train will be considered too. You’ll have experience of all the rituals associated with professional development: git, bug tracking and trouble-shooting, code-reviews, and working in Scrum or Kanban setting. Some experience with more sys-admin’y tasks would be a definite benefit. Comfortable configuring Apache and nginx? Not scared of editing a PostgreSQL config? These things would help your application.

About the Client

Company is a household name (in technical households, admittedly) with a very wide reach. Their software keeps many businesses online, so your work has potential to have a huge impact.
