Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

All in the Family - Perl developer in Central Manchester

The client is a family business for the modern age, 100% owned by the founders and directors. Their mission is to match flatmates to flatshares because after all, you can’t live at Mum’s forever. They’re looking for someone with a great attitude and a passion for collaboration—basically, someone who plays nice with the other kids and shares their toys.

Wanted: Junior Perl Developer Ready to Move Up from the Bunny Hill

The client helps charities fund raise online and manages online payment systems for landlords, so you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re contributing to the greater good. And if that’s not enough for you, did we mention the annual company ski trip AND the chance to work in the mountains near Lake Geneva for a week each year, all expenses paid? Giving back never felt so good!

In Search of a Few Good Rock Stars

This major firm is located in Houston, Texas, but don’t worry if you’re not a local. They have a top-rate relocation program because finding talent matters to them. And what do they do once they’ve found the celebrities of the programming world? They take care of them, that’s what!
