Description: Looking for a backup PERL programmer to learn a complex system, help with its development and eventually take over when I leave, whether that is by someone's choice or homicide or too much rap music.

Person must have exponential moons of experience; be quite adept at creating logical scripts; be willing to learn a rather intense and large system; know how to follow directions; not be a thorn or a prick as it were; comprehend mechanisms and procedures beyond mortal, politically correct, self-aware living organisms; not be a species parasite or viral infection; be willing to learn how scripts run, what does what, what flow takes one to what level of consciousness and be able to retroactively answer any question asked before it is contemplated. Or something relatively close thereto.

Did I mention PERL?!?! We're talking expert level here. Json, Rest API, Ajax, jQuery, LWP, net:FTP, Excel creation and a mighty small amount of Php are necessary knowledge sets. Awareness of Windows and Unix environments for PERL execution. Best if close to if not completely at expert level in running both systems. Kudos and brownie points to those who shine at server tasks.

I am not looking to go further into insanity in this search so save the time if you can't justify the reality of your qualifications. Absolutely NO beginners, wannabees, intern spores or speedo wearing nerds seeking redemption from life's travails: suck it up buttercup. And the anticipated exit of myself to turn this over to a trained and ready for prime-time player is not anticipated soon. Later, but not soon. Define soon as you will.

To apply, respond to this ad using the nifty email feature giving who, what, when, why, how and what for; as well as a pitch that tells me about yourself , your experience and that you know what you're talking about.

Perl is very much alive and Monks tend to look down at lowly bottom feeding Php'ers. But not here. Well. OK. Honestly. This is going to be a running ad until the right person is found. Once applied DO NOT follow up. You'll be contacted IF you meet the requirements and are being added to any short list. It only matters where you live if you live outside of the United States. U.S. residents ONLY! All others will be discarded.

Thank you for reading and have a peachy day.
Desired skills: PERL
