Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? Doctor? Rock star? Or maybe you were intrigued by a different sort of star . . . hello, Spacemen and Spacewomen! Calling all childhood astronauts—if your passion for the space program morphed into a passion for Perl programming, then we have an opportunity that’s out of this world.
Our Houston-area client has several openings ranging from newbie Perl programmers with 1-2 years’ experience, all the way up to the programming veterans who remember when your Mom buying you a pet rock for Christmas was almost as cool as a trip to Space Camp.
Not in Houston? No problem! This company has an (inter)stellar relocation program. Other perks for the company’s team of creative employees include a 401(k) matching plan, health benefits that will be the envy of all your pals, and a casual work environment that will make you feel as welcome as a Martian in Roswell. Don’t worry about brown-bagging it—lunch is catered every day, and unlike in space, you can use real salt and pepper. Ever tried salting a boiled egg at zero gravity? It’s not pretty.
The client may not build rockets, but they’re a well-known company that builds the software hosting companies use to allow their customers to build websites. The software you help to create will be deployed on thousands of servers all over the internet, and scads of people will use it—changes you make will be seen and used by hundreds of thousands of people, and maybe an undercover alien or two.
T-minus 10 seconds to ignition—are you ready for a fantastic new challenge? Then suit up, Rocket Man; we’re waiting for your transmission (that’s astronaut for email).
