Description: Greystar is looking for at least one, possibly two or more, highly skilled perl developer(s) to help maintain and improve our system.

We've been in business since 2001; our codebase is large, complex, and under heavy use. Recently we've seen a significant escalation in the frequency, intensity, and sophistication of attacks against both our systems and individual user accounts. We're looking for people who can help systematically improve our security and system architecture, both short and long term. In the short term, we primarily want to focus on tightening security and similar; long term, we want to be able to reimplement or refactor existing code where needed along with deploying new code and features in a sane way.

Our system is about 95% perl, with a smattering of PHP in places, very large, and very complex. Ability to navigate and analyze existing code effectively is an absolute must. A reasonable grasp of modern perl, and the ability to write it quickly and effectively, is mandatory. The ability to construct solutions in the context of the larger system is extremely important.
Other skills which are important:
-Familiarity with Linux systems
-MySQL/MariaDB
-Nginx, apache, and perl web servers (mod_perl, Starman, etc.)
-Advanced perl OO
-In-depth familiarity with common perl modules (core and CPAN)
-Experience with parallel computing
-Performance profiling & analysis
-Security, penetration testing, etc.
-Familiarity with sensitive information handling, encryption, etc.

Ultimately, we want people who can contribute to the system, improve security, and help us make really neat stuff.
For applicants in the US, the position will be salaried, 100% telecommute, with health benefits included. Candidates from other countries will be considered, but we are primarily interested in people located in the continental US.
Desired skills: Perl, Ubuntu, Security, SQL
