Happy Monday!

After some time off to get married, I'm back at it this week, and trying to get back into the swing of things. I could carry on at some length about my amazing husband (those of you who know me on Facebook have no-doubt gotten sick of it by now), but I sha'nt. Instead, on to the week's news!

Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

London-based Perl developer? Free £10,000 payrise (individual results may vary...)

Do you love customers? Senior Perl Developer with a product focus, London

Ever find yourself wishing you could see meaningful impact on users from your work? Trapped in a company with long release cycles and dubious release dates? Wish your ideas for product improvement didn't keep disappearing in to the Project Manager's backlog?
