Holding onto your cash makes good cents…

Scrooge gets a bad rap. Okay, so he’s a little grouchy and wouldn’t recognize Christmas spirit if it stole his nightcap, but his fixation with frugality shouldn’t be shamed. If you believe in helping others hold on to their hard-earned cash, we have the role for you.

Our client is one of the largest product and price comparison platforms in German-speaking countries. They’re not saying you shouldn’t spend money, but if you’re going to splash out on the latest gear, why not get the best price? With a website that allows consumers to compare deals on everything from toasters to tablets, our client helps their users hunt out the best values.

Perl programmers, are you ready to get your Scrooge on and help others save money? Here’s what you need to know: this company is looking for someone who will deliver strong content and well-executed info to keep their users in the black. This client is located in Vienna, Austria, so while your daytime hours will centre on saving dollars and cents, nighttime is free to explore the legendary cultural offerings, including concerts, museums, exhibitions, restaurants, and clubs. Fun fact: did you know that Vienna is the birthplace of wiener schnitzel?

If you’re hungry for a new opportunity (or a schnitzel), this may be the job for you. And because they love saving money, they offer free lunch to their team every day. Leaves you with more to spend in your after-hours and really, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Maybe Scrooge wasn’t all wrong — saving money can be cool, as long as you aren’t a total grump about it. If you agree, send us your CV today and let us know why you think saving is wunderbar!
