The elves keep the workshop running, but some jobs call for Santa-level skills. Kris Kringles of the Perl world, if you’re an ultra-Senior Perl Developer who can work with legacy code and identify opportunities for improvement, our client has a sleigh with your name on it.

As the leading provider of cloud-based collaborative project management solutions, our client’s customizable dashboards let users track KPIs, milestones, schedules, and other data. They work seamlessly across devices and offer the flexibility and adaptability their users need to keep projects on schedule. While we can neither confirm nor deny, rumor has it a certain North Pole workshop uses these project management solutions to schedule toy-making…

Santa can make it around the world in one night, and just like Santa, the right candidate for this remote role could be located anywhere (although there is a preference for a US-based developer). The ideal candidate will be equally comfortable in a Santa hat, a fedora, or a beret — in other words, you’ll wear a lot of hats, and you’ll slay in all of them.

Your day-to-day will include feature and bug requests on the backend platform at a high level. You’ll build forms and reports, and enhance and update the backend. Grab your snow shovel; you’ll be digging into the platform and using your understanding of legacy code to improve the platform over time. If you’ve got AWS experience and front-end with CGI scripts, generate HTML, AJAX, and API end points that separate the front and backend, you’ll move to the top of the Nice List.

Like the holiday season, this role won’t be around forever. Send us an email today and let us know if you’ve got Santa-level skills!

Skills and Experience

  • Required: Perl, Linux, Apache, SQL
  • Nice-to-have: mod_perl, HTML, JavaScript, XML, SSL, Hardware
