We are looking for 3 highly experienced senior Perl developers to join an existing team of 14. Within an agile project management framework (Kanban) you will be part of a team whose job it is to understand user requirements, design solutions, and develop and test multi-tier implementations to address the requirements. The work is an interesting mixture of enhancing a mature, existing codebase along with new projects using webservices, AJAX and system integration.

The job will be based in the beautiful county of Cornwall (surf, sea, fresh air). Our preference is to employ the successful candidate as a permanent employee (although contract employment can also be offered).

Required Skills

Team Worker
Passionate about good software
Architectural experience

The candidate will have extensive commercial Perl software development experience including database development (PostgreSQL, MySQL or other SQL).

It is expected that the candidate will have, at least, an understanding of Agile as a philosophy, Agile frameworks (Scrum, Kanban, XP) and as a practice (e.g. TDD, CI etc.). Agile team experience would be a significant benefit but not essential. The candidates should also have commercial experience of source control systems and concepts.PERL (CPAN, OO Perl)
