Spring is underway, the world is reopening, and change is in the air. Can you smell it? The heady scent of a fully engaged, 100% remote team… mmm. Hello, new job. We’ve been waiting for you.

Perl developers, here’s the skinny on this dynamic organization: they are the developer and operator of software platforms providing web presence services to customers around the world. With an impressive reach that covers over 180 countries, they are expanding rapidly and need your Perl skills and your Linux and/or FreeBSD experience to do it. They offer a great benefits package, a strong culture of transparency, and they believe their people are their greatest asset.

This role is all about freedom. Freedom to work where you want, with the tech you want, in the clothes that make you happy. While this team prides themselves on not spending all day in their pajamas, no one says you’ve got to suit up for videocalls. Maybe you’re taking online meetings at a café or troubleshooting software and system problems from your balcony. Heck, maybe you’re developing new features from bed — just put away your teddy bear when it’s time for a video chat, okay?

Your day-to-day includes working with internet and development tech, web services, unit testing, and code review. You’ll work with the customer support team to respond to issues, implement new microservices, and squash bugs in Perl web applications and backend systems. You’ll be equally at home with Modern Object Oriented and legacy Perl, and you’ll approach issues with creativity and a can-do, already-done attitude. In an ideal world, you’ll be in the UK or the EU; this role is remote, but it helps to be in similar time zones so you’re not joining a team huddle at 3 o’clock in the morning.

If you’re ready to spring into action for this new role, send us your CV today!

Skills and Experience

Client is particularly keen on someone who knows Modern Perl, but’s also comfortable doing sysadmin tasks. It’s a small and engaged team, and a combination of both would be useful – bonus points if the sysadmin experience is on FreeBSD. They also use some interesting supporting technologies: Elixir, CouchDB, and RabbitMQ, and either experience or enthusiasm for those would go down well.
