Are you one of those programming polyglots who is equally at home conversing in Perl, Python, and JavaScript? Even if you’re only conversational in a few of those (or other) programming languages, you may be exactly the person our client is seeking to join their top-notch team.

So, who are these mystery folks? Only one of the largest and most trusted product and price comparison platforms in German-speaking countries! In these precedented times, saving money is important, and their success in helping clients save their Euros has led to expansion into new markets. They’re looking for a Perl programmer to join their team — could it be you?

This role encompasses the build-up, maintenance, and optimization of Perl backend solutions. While Perl is obviously an important part of the job, they’re open to non-Perl speakers if you’re ready to learn and have a strong base of knowledge in other programming languages (ideally, more than one). You should have experience with relational databases, object oriented and/or functional programming, and experience with PostrgreSQL, HTML, and DVCS would be a plus.

Your day-to-day will be spent working from the comfort of home, though you’ll need to visit the office every now and then. For that reason, the successful candidate will be in our client’s hometown of Vienna, Austria. On days when you do go to the office, you’ll be smitten with offerings of free lunch, snacks and beverages, and a team that believes play is just as important as work.

To find out if you’re right for this role, email us today and let us know how many languages you speak. Bonne chance!

Skills and Experience

Client is willing to consider all candidates with strong Perl, but they make heavy use of PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, and Modern Perl.
