Work with giant, caged robots, and Perl - Senior Developer, London

Terms of employment: Salaried employee

Description: Let’s start off talking about the robots. They live in cages, they travel at 60mph, and they’re controlled via AMQ messages from a Perl-based Warehouse Management System. Simultaneously awesome and terrifying, they work tirelessly to move expensive dresses around such exotic locations as Charlton, and Mahwah,New Jersey. Be filled with an incredible sense of power and agency as you send their giant metal bodies hurling around the warehouse. Alternatively, you might end up working on the code that makes the printers work.

The client in question (and former employer of mine) is a large and very well-known e-commerce company specialising in high fashion.

They’ve got a large Perl team who use Catalyst, DBIx::Class, Moose, Plack and Template Toolkit. Many developers there are CPAN contributors. The company is solidly committed to developing in an Agile manner, continuous delivery, and pushing the envelope with more modern tools — many features and tests are implemented using Behaviour Driven Development (experience of which would be useful!).

Absolutely not afraid to pay well for the best people.
Desired skills: Modern Perl, including Catalyst, DBIx::Class, Moose, Plack and Template Toolkit.
